Poetry and Music from Women Around the World!

Balsam (Sibylle Preuschat) Balsam is Sibylle Preuschat's “artistic” or “pen” name. Balsam is a singer, a teacher of collaboration with physical intelligence, and a network marketer. She currently lives in New Jersey, USA. On the CD, Feel the Love, Get the Respect: From Nature, For You, With Music, Balsam expresses her quest to physically experience Divine source and presence, her vocal and musical abilities, and her ongoing conscious relationship with physical/ biological intelligence, balance, and vitality, aka Nature. Feel the Love, Get the Respect is Balsam's debut CD.

Alfredo Villela Composer and musician Alfredo Villela is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, where he learned film scoring and music synthesis under Dr. Richard Boulanger.

Nature/physicality is the iridescent clothing of Soul. It shifts and changes to reflect Soul's intentions. As the Soul pays attention to the changing colors, it can learn from them how to create greater and greater beauty. Life is a sacred agreement between Nature and Soul. Tap into that agreement and we flourish.

Feel the Love, Get the Respect can take you into an experience of consciously collaborating with Nature/physical/biological intelligence to create greater awareness, beauty, and power in seven vital life processes:

breathing, thinking, eating, moving, seeing, expressing sexuality, dreaming

Each encounter with natural/physical/biological love and respect is supported by Balsam's singing and Alfredo Villela's percussion.

PSOEMETRY, aka Sandra Sedgwick Williams

Sandra Sedgwick Williams was born to write poetry, it seems. She was writing poems in high school for her friends to help them attract dates, and then after she married and joined her home church, she began writing poetry there to accentuate the sermons and became known as 'THE GOOD NEWS POET'. After her divorce, she turned her creative juices into writing poetry to be put to music, and hence her spoken word journey began. She changed her name to THE QUIETT STORME and produced a wonderful CD, 'SWEET SURRENDER', on which she collaborated with her son Ben, and now goes by the professional name PSOEMETRY. Ben is still very much involved in the music production end, and is an accomplished musician and songwriter himself. PSOEMETRY has performed in many area spoken word venues, particularly in the Atlanta area, and has achieved an impressive following. Ms. Williams resides in Atlanta and is rearing her three adopted daughters.

Because of so many other spoken word artists also using the name, howbeit various spellings, The Quiet Storm, Sandra prayed and asked God for a unique name and was given the name Psoemetry (so em et tree) meaning a blending of songs, music and poetry.

Musical Poetry
More from Phil Ball!

This time we visit his irreverent side in sixteen romantic, funny, frivolous, and entertaining poems, all with a musical accompaniment from: Guitar, Brian Gauci; Keyboard, Michael Fonfara; Saxaphone, Pat Carey.

Musical Poetry

The Poet, Phil Ball:
Originally from Coventry, England Phil ended up in Canada at the age of 20 as the result of a coin toss. Who was to know that in the wee hours of the night Phil had been writing poetry and prose for years. It was a surprise to everyone that knew Phil when he up and announced that he had all these poems and was going to make a CD. This collection is a small sampling of the vast collection of goodies he has stored away.
