Hecate's Wheel: Goddess Music Worth Listening To!

As a music reviewer, nothing gives me greater pleasure than to find Goddess music that touches my soul. Stumbling across them on Reverbnation, I wrote and they responded. Graciously, they sent me a CD for their 2007 release of Hecate's Wheel. I was delighted. Described as "Jewel meets Joan Baez meets Veruca Salt," this album is a mix of cover songs and original works. It is the ultimate girl power Goddess music style band and every time I listen to their album, my fingers get worn out hitting the rewind button on the four favorites listed below.

The band consists of:

Vicki Scotti- vocals, guitar
Luann Morris-vocals
Amy Otero-vocals

Their website is:

Product link: Cd Baby Hecate's Wheel

2. Elemental
3. Find The Cost Of Freedom
4. Home
5. Mercy Of The Fallen
6. Inanna Blue
7. This Town Is Wrong
8. Fill It Up
9. Soulmate
10. Hecate
11. Lady Of The Moon

Normally, in my music reviews, I pick three songs that really speak to me about the artist's music. This time I felt like I needed to pick four. Goddess music makes my heart happy and these songs are perfect:

Lady of the Moon, Hecate, Inanna Blue, Elemental

"Elemental" was written by Amy Otero, with vocals by all three members of the band. The song is pure Goddess folk music with the focus on the voices and the power they raise as the harmony builds and lifts your spirit. 

"Inanna Blue" was written by Vicki Scotti and the vocals were performed by all three members of the band, with Scotti on the guitar to pick up the pace. The song opens up with guitar riffs that immediately bring you in for a listen. The ladies begin their vocals, very folksy and compelling. Magic in lyric and imagery, this song is one of my favorites on the album.

"Hecate" is the creation of Vicki Scotti with all the ladies singing once again. Scotti on the guitar paces this piece as a journey into the darkness to meet Hecate and divine a path through the crossroads of life. The harmonizing of the voices and guitar riffs are once again very compelling and this song reaches down into the witch inside all of us, looking for the path that calls our soul.

"Lady of the Moon" is by far the most exhilerating song on the album. The first time I heard it, tears came to my eyes, and they still do, every time. Written by Vicki Scotti (who has to be my hero right about now) and sung by all the ladies in the band,  with Scotti on the guitar, this piece is a shining star. Melodious at the onset, with guitar pacing at a light set of riffs that blur into a chorus of "lady of the moon...shine your light on me..." that is soul piercingly sweet. The continual harmonies these ladies craft is nothing short of magic. 

While this album came out in 2007, Hecate's Wheel is still out there performing. You can follow the link to to get your very own copy. Please support this wonderful girl power band. We want to see a new album from them soon!

Make sure to stop in on Facebook and let the ladies know you heard about them at On the Broomstick. Happy flying!
