Song of the Sidhe - Lia Scallon

$15,620 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 2 months

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and check out my special project!

I’m Lia Scallon, an award-winning Sacred Songstress and Composer. For the past 20 years I’ve been the conduit for the unique, otherworldly music known as the 'Sounds of Sirius'. These angelic songs are accompanied by a mystical ‘Language of Light’ which carries key  activation codes to trigger deep soul remembrances. Listeners experience a profound sense of ‘coming home’ as they are enveloped by the pure unconditional Love woven through the sounds. To date, I have released 10 'Sounds of Sirius' albums. My two most recent albums have both  won awards for 'Best New Age Album', amongst other award nominations.


A New Project that needs your Help!

Because of the radical shift in the music industry, it's now 5 years since I recorded a new album. Unfortunately, few people buy CDs any more.  Streaming was responsible for 60% of music consumption in the past year as most people now expect their music for free. With streaming royalties at around  0.1 – 0.6cents per stream, most independent artists are left pretty well high and dry.

Nonetheless, I have embarked on a new music project! I feel this new music has the potential to touch the hearts of many thousands of people across the globe, by unlocking the door to a hidden world of magic and mystery. The focus of the new album is the Irish Faerie Kingdom, the Sidhe. The Sidhe are not your tiny Tinkerbelle fairies! They are a race apart - beings of great stature and power who exist in a parallel dimension to ours. It is the they who wish to connect with us through this new music called ‘Song of the Sidhe’.

Are Faeries Real?

 
The Riders of the Sidhe -  John Duncan (1866-1945)

Growing up in Ireland I was imbued with a healthy respect for the Faerie Kingdom. In the Celtic world the Faeries are a race that can help or harm, depending on the relationship you have with them. As a child, I remember being told that one must never cut down a lone tree in a field as that is a Faerie tree. To do so would result in the Faeries putting thorns in your bed! To this day farmers in Ireland leave offerings such as butter, milk and honey for the Faeries in the hope of a good harvest, and protection of their livestock. 

In recent years my connection to the Sidhe has greatly deepened, and on a trip to Ireland a few months ago, it reached a new zenith. The Rainbow Gateway photograph below appeared immediately after a simple ceremony to help open a Faerie portal.

 

‘Song of the Sidhe’

On returning to Australia, the Sidhe told me that they wished to use my music to 'awaken' human beings to their presence. This music, they said, would open the portals between their world and ours, so that they can rise up and walk amongst us again.

Given the state of the music industry, the decision to embark on this project involved a significant battle between head and heart! The Sidhe's message was so compelling however, that I resolved to set my fears aside and comply with their wishes. With blind faith that the necessary abundance would manifest, I went ahead and booked the studio and musicians. Then, on the powerful 12/12 gateway of December 12th, a day when the veil between worlds was gossamer thin, I began to lay down the first bedrock vocals and musical accompaniment for ‘Song of the Sidhe’.

 


Who are the Sidhe?

                               John Duncan (1866-1945)

The Sidhe are descendants of the the Tuath De Danann, a mythical peace-loving race of sky gods who had the ability to move between worlds. When the Milesians conquered Ireland they drove this ancient people further and further back until eventually they were forced underground  to become the people of the Hollow Hills, the Faerie people. The Sidhe have been waiting for a sign that human beings might be willing to acknowledge their presence and speak to them. An opportunity now presents for a new era to dawn when the Sidhe can rise up to walk amongst us once more.

The Sidhe Wish to Help Us
 Ivory, Apes and Peacocks - John Duncan (1866-1945)

 Humanity is at a critical juncture. We have become so disconnected from Nature and from ourselves that we are fast hurtling towards our own annihilation. The Sidhe wish to help us. They have a vision of a New Earth where they can walk beside us in harmony; where the plants, rocks and animals are also recognised as living Light consciousness; where everything is part  of a grand and Divine whole. It is time for humankind to awaken to, and acknowledge the Sidhe’s existence.

Queen Tea Tephi – High Queen of the Sidhe
 
Merlin and the Fairy Queen- John Duncan (1866-1945)
 
During my recent communications with the Sidhe, I was inspired to write a poem which you will find in the 'Updates' section below. The voice in this poem is Queen Tea Tephi, daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh, who was inaugurated as High Queen of Ireland in 583BC. It's my belief that she is also High Queen of the Sidhe. The story she tells in this poem will be the driving force behind the music of 'Song of the Sidhe Queen'

The Sidhe’s Are Calling You Too!


The Sidhe wish other humans to support the creation of this music too. They showed me that if you project your Love and Intention towards myself and the musicians, it will creat a tangible wave of energy that will underpin the artistic endeavour. This wave of love and intent will also serve as a powerful affirmation for the Sidhe that Humankind really do wish to embrace them. They in turn, promise to weave their magic and their mystery through the music, and through our lives.

Your Involvement

I feel that the Sidhe are with me every step of the way. The reality is however, that in order to complete this important project, I'm going to need some practical and financial support. Which is where you come in!

I have funded the first phase of this special project myself. Professional studio recording and the hiring of quality musicians however, are very costly. Studio fees average at $1000 per day. As there are many more weeks of recording and mixing the album ahead, the only way I can progress to the next stage is with your   support. I need your help!


With trust that the Sidhe would  find the abundance necessary for me to complete this project, I decided to forge ahead with further recording, in the faith that all would be well. As such, I've been back in the studio for several more recording sessions since 12/12.
  
And it is my great  joy to share that my trust in the Sidhe has been rewarded...

Thanks to the support of the beautiful and generous souls who have donated through this page to date, the first major target for the Recording Phase has been met! That has allowed me keep going in the studio, and I have now  completed the main recording. We have even begun to mix the album which is incredibly exciting! I'm hoping that, all going to plan, by early March I will have a final mix of the soundtrack ready to send to the manufacturers for pressing.

Thank you from my Heart!      

To date your Donations have helped to pay for:


Recording Stages 1-9  - Studio Hire/Production Engineer  ($1000 per day = $8000)
Musician Fees  - Keyboards, Flute, Violin, Harp, Cellist, Drums and Percussion ($3000)
Mixing Costs - Studio Hire/Production Engineer/Musical Director ($1000 per day. Projected cost $3000 - $6000)
Go Fund Me fees - Approx 7.9% of total donated + .30 cents per Transaction

Please stay the course with me for  Phase 2
When the recording and mixing of the album is complete, there are a whole other raft of very substantial expenses involved in manufacturing the album, and then letting people know of its existence. These costs amount to approximately the same as the recording costs. 

- CD Replication & Manufacture 
- Album Artwork & Layout
- Photography
- CD Packaging
- Freight Costs
- Digital Distribution
- Printed Promotional Materials

- US Radio Promoter costs
- Australia/Worldwide Promoter costs

- Video Production 
- Publicist  

- Go Fund Me fees - Approx 7.9% of total donated + .30 cents per Transaction


Radio/Video Promotion
Going to all the effort and expense of creating a new album is somewhat fruitless if people don’t know the music exists! Radio promotion is what gets you airplay; airplay hopefully gets you into the charts; getting into the charts is what qualifies you for entry for the various Awards etc. The multiple award nominations garnered for my last two award-winning albums 'Crystal Keys' and 'The Luminous Pearl' were the result of hiring a Radio promoter who got the albums to radio stations across the USA. That resulted in airplay which got them into them both into the Top Ten in the genre's Radio charts.

The more people 'Song of the Sidhe' reaches, and the more of humanity who become aware of who the Sidhe are, the more rapidly the portals between our worlds will open, to allow balance and harmony take hold upon our Earth. The magic and the energy of the Sidhe are embedded in the frequencies of the music being created. This music is designed to trigger remembrances in those who hear it. It is designed to Awaken, to Heal, to Inspire and to invoke Joy.

Any support you can offer to bring 'Song of the Sidhe' to the attention of the world therefore, would be deeply appreciated. If you could spread the word and share this campaign link  with your friends, family and other like-minded souls that would be awesome!

Meet the Sidhe for Yourself in Ireland

Last year in 2017, myself and dear friend Stephanie Phelps, took a group of people on a spiritual 'Journey of Love'  to Mystical Ireland. The entire trip was filled with such surprise and delight, and was such a transformative experience for everyone involved, that we have decided to do it again this year! 

Ireland is steeped in mystical lore, spirituality, history, legends, breathtaking scenery and ancient sites where the veils between the worlds are thin. In fact, many of the sites we visit are older than the pyramids. Our ‘Mystical Ireland' Journey of Love offers an opportunity for real connection with the energy and people of the Emerald Isle. We visit Stone Circles, Holy Wells, ancient Druidic sites, Faerie Forts where we can expect  interactions with the Irish Faerie Folk, the Sidhe, and much more.

Last year we had several incredible encounters with the Sidhe on our travels. It was these powerful and personal experiences that opened the door to the Faerie world much wider for me, establishing a communication with the Sidhe that eventually kickstarted this special 'Song of the Sidhe' project.

I've been back in the Recording Studio during the past two weeks, and I'm happy to report that the recording phase of 'Song of the Sidhe' is now well on the way to completion! Hopefully, by the end of next week or the week after, I will have a final mix of the album ready for pressing.

I hope you enjoy these new recording snapshots! I would be eternally grateful if you could share my GofundMe page link with your networks so that I can progress to the artwork and manufacturing phase as soon as the soundtrack is ready.

Thank you for your support of this very special project!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

With trust that the Sidhe would find the abundance necessary for me to complete this project, I decided to forge ahead in the faith that all would be well. As such, I've have already been back in the studio for several more days of recording since Christmas and I'm delighted to say that album is now well and truly taking shape!

As of January 21st, thanks to the support of some beautiful and generous souls, my recording target is now close to being met! This has allowed me schedule a return to the studio on February 5th for 3 days, during which time I hope to complete the recording, and get close to a final mix of the new album, which is incredibly exciting!
