FULL BIO

“I believe that songs live and breathe on our breath, pulsing to the rhythm of our heart beat. If not carried and sung they are lost, forgotten. It is my prayer and life’s work to gather songs from around the world and share their story of human care, love and connection to the Earth and one another.”

As a sacred song preserver Peia has gathered songs from traditions that span across the globe. She has traveled extensively and studied from the rich lineages of Medieval Chant, Bulgarian and Celtic Folk Music, Medicine songs from the Native peoples of North and South America and Indian Classical Raga. Peia’s original songwriting draws upon a deep well love and respect for our planet and the spirit of all life.

Born in the back hills of Connecticut, Peia spent most of her childhood playing in the forests, hiding out in tree tops and learning from the sounds and patterns in the nature around her. In 2002 she moved to Boston where she attended New England Conservatory of Music on a generous scholarship and received extensive training in western classical voice and opera, vocal pedagogy, composition, and improvisation.

In 2012 she released her first solo album The Dance of Devotion – a stunning collection of poetic and devotional love songs. Her latest recording Four Great Winds – a journey through traditional and sacred song was self released in May 2013 and picked up by Sounds True for global release in 2015.

Following the initial release of ‘Four Great Winds’ Peia gained international notoriety and requests for performances in Europe, Australia, Bali, Brazil and Canada. Her music has taken her around the world and sparked collaborations with many world class artists including: legendary poet and Rumi scholar Coleman Barks, author, mythologist & storyteller Michael Meade, Iranian tar master Ali Ghamsari and Sephardic song keeper, oud & guitar virtuoso Shai Shriki.

Peia currently splits her time between touring and the lush, wild hills of Southern OR where she wildcrafts herbal remedies and teaches ‘Song of the Ancients’ voice cultivation. Fusing her knowledge of Vocal Pedagogy (The Science of the Voice) with the ancient meditative practice of Nada Yoga, she imparts upon her students the tools to harness the natural beauty and resonance of the voice .
