YOU'RE THE QUEEN COSETTE

sinkingdreamboat asked: My name is Cosette and I really like your music! I just discovered it today when I was searching "you're the queen..." And then all of a sudden my name pops up in popular searches and I had to know why! I hope this band gets really big and a lot of people wear your shirts. It'll make me feel really good. :)

Hi Cosette!  Thank you for the well wishes, I hope so too!  

Did you know your name means “lark” which is just so beautiful to me.  That’s one of the reasons I love the name, but the central inspiration was the character in Les Mis, which is a book that has been really influential in my life and writing.  I love Cosette’s character in Hugo’s book because she demonstrates this immense amount of beauty and redemption.  The idea is that, through the love of another, Cosette, who experiences so much rejection and hardship in her life, is still seen as the most beautiful and precious person in Jean Val Jean’s life.  There’s a line in the book where he puts her on his shoulders and says “You’re the Queen Cosette!  You’re the queen.”

I really want my music to portray these same beautiful truths.

Thanks for asking, you have a beautiful name!!

New remixes up on Bandcamp!! Free download, enjoy!

When Eden shivers

The full fled rivers flow to lead us out

To the land of woe, where the earth has folded

Doubled over in doubt

We wept by Mirabah

And the toiling of our tears

Will make a stream that carries us

From the mountain to friendly fields.

Friendly Fields

..bitter as bark

Soaked in the sounds of violence I was

Force fed by the dark.

And it crept from my heart to fingers

which were trying to trace

Your form which I swore still lingered, but just felt like empty space

But I’ve fallen in love with fires

I never will hold

And they speak to me far from somewhere that has burned until it’s cold.

To touch is a trying treasure I’m

Dying to chase

I’d forfeit my favorite pleasures while the world condemns the waste.

Can you wash the stars clean?

With your victory, distant now though it may seem,

Can you wash the stars clean, with your

bloody hands

Laughing all of the the dark plans

into days.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."

                                -Proverbs 31:25

A bit of what’s happened so far.  In da studio.  Casey Joens on da drums.

For fans and friends otherwise, here is a brief outline of things ahead..exciting new fronts of creative vigilance and fruitful labor:

1. Soon I will have recorded my first EP, a collection of six songs I’ve selected to be the forerunners in this musical venture.  It will spotlight the drumming genius of Casey Joens and the musical stylings of some yet to be determined musical guests.

2. My heart’s desire is to get this collection of songs out into the big, bad world.  I’ve held onto them for a long while, but I think it’s about time people heard them.

3. I’d like you to be as much a part of the process as you are in enjoying the finished project, so here, in this blog, you will find updates, behind the scenes footage, and the meanderings, ponderings, and poetries that make the music happen.

Yours Truly,

You’re the Queen Cosette
