We'Moon 2013
We'Moon 2013 brings us a profound and provocative exploration of “The Other Side” - the many other sides: of the story, of the revolution, of birth/death, of mystery.

Subtitled Gaia Rhythms for Womyn, We'Moon 2013 is more than an appointment book, astrological moon calendar, spiritual guide, handbook in natural rhythm, and multi-cultural anthology of womyn. It's a way of life: a creation of our international womyn's culture, interweaving art and writing from a whole-Earth, womyn-loving, lunar perspective through the 13 Moons of the year.

Includes week-at-a-glance, with full color art throughout!

All the Datebooks are here... We'Moons & Women Artists!

Barbara Higbie - Winter Joy
Barbara Higbie's 2012 holiday release is absolutely exquisite. Most tracks are instrumental: Barbara plays piano, celtic harp, violin, hammered dulcimer, bouzouki, accordion, synthesizer, acoustic guitar, and features Nina Gerber on acoustic guitar.

Most are traditional tunes & carols, except for one self-penned. Gorgeous, tasteful arrangements by Barbara ... more Solstice-y than Christmas-y, like a quiet snowy landscape.

Experience some joy ... of the musical kind! Celebrate with some fine New Music this season, from Ladyslipper!

Meshell Ndegeocello's Dedication to Nina Simone
Meshell Ndegeocello's POUR UNE AME SOUVERAINE (For a Sovereign Soul), A DEDICATION TO NINA SIMONE, is a labor of love - a reflection of Meshell's awe, affection, and gratitude for the pioneering work of a woman who refused to be owned by genre, industry, or expectation.

Meshell doesn't simply cover Nina's material. She updates and personalizes, creatively turning well and lesser known songs into new experiences, as she invites collaborations by Valerie June, Sinead O'Connor, Toshi Reagon & others.

For instance, Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair continues "Black is the color of my love so fair / Black is her body, so firm, so bold / Black is her beauty, her soul of gold."

While Nina Simone is no longer here to pass the torch, this album, not just a tribute but a transformation, clearly nominates Meshell as her heir apparent.

Check out the New and Recent titles ... the best of 2012 ... from Ladyslipper!

Meshell Ndegeocello - Pour Une Ame Souveraine - A Dedication to Nina Simone
Various Hawai'ian Women Artists - Wahine
On this gorgeous 17-song compilation, Maui and Hawai'i Island women share their Hawai'i in the songs they were inspired to write or perform, creating a celebration of the art, music and creative spirit of women in Hawai'i.

It includes tracks from women's music foremother Ginni Clemmens, as well as from Lei'ohu Ryder, Pi'ilani Ka'awaloa, Ahumanu, Laurie Roeher & others.

The impact of each song is magnified as it is interpreted through the eye of artist Lori Higgins, who presents a tour-de-force of her signature, Hawai'i-inspired art.

You might fall in love with every one of these women; you will surely fall in love with Hawai'i.

From Amazons to Zap Mama ... Holly Near to Indigo Girls' Holly Happy Days ... music from everywhere for everyone, at Ladyslipper!

The Deadly Nightshade - Never Never Gonna Stop
Power bluegrass/country -- from one of the very first feminist bands in existence!

6 newly recorded songs, 5 original live performance videos from the 70s, 4 years of being back together, 3 best friends, 2 years giving (musical) birth = 1 very fine CD!

During their first incarnation, this ground-breaking 3-woman band not only recorded some major label albums ... they also played venues such as the 10th anniversary National Women's Music Festival ... where the 5 live performance videos -- available only on this physical CD -- were recorded.

30 years later, the band has reunited to record new songs, play more gigs, and catalyze much fun. And they're never, never gonna stop.
