This project is the culmination of one woman’s modest experiment in responding to birdsong as a unique portal to more fully inhabiting her own singing voice.
A personal narrative provides theoretical context for the Songs and Vocal Sketches offered here--all of which were inspired by and derived from intent listening to birdsong in a variety of natural and recorded settings.
Deb's story offers insight into how deep attention to sound and song in the natural world can promote access to one's own ancestral, spontaneous, innate and original singing voice, imbued with deeper understandings of place and identity.
Deb Hensley is a singer/songwriter who has been performing and leading vocal improvisation workshops for over seven years with her ensemble Improvox (www.improvox.com). She is a grateful student of Rhiannon Watson and a member Rhiannon's vocal-intensive study group, "All the Way In."
Deb serves as Director for the Broadreach Early Childhood Inclusive Program in mid-coast Maine, and works as a field consultant with the High Scope Educational Research Foundation, leading educational workshops around the country. She lives in the Maine woods where birdlife flourishes and song abounds.
