What happens when you mix the heart-melting magic of Jami Sieber’s music with the mind-opening power of some of the greatest poetry of all time?

Only Breath is a revolutionary meeting between music and poetry that merges poems from around the world with compositions that flow from the depths of stillness to wild world-beat rhythms. Electric cellist/vocalist Jami Sieber, reaches inside the soul with her passionate playing and compositions that are contemporary and powerfully evocative. Kim Rosen’s gift of speaking poems has made her a voice for poetry’s power to awaken, inspire, and heal. Together, they create a startling and beautiful dialogue, where the spoken poem becomes a layer of the music and the music an essential voice within the poem. 

“Only Breath” is an invitation to rediscover what mystics, poets and shamans have known for centuries: when you join powerful rhythms with the language of the heart, the mind bursts open to an unsayable “Ahhh!” of pure revelation. 

Sieber and Rosen are joined on “Only Breath” by talented musicians UlaliSteve GornKai Eckhardt, Julie Wolf, Michaelle Goerlitz, Erika Luckett, RhiannonDavid WormBenjy WertheimerEvan Schiller, Eben Eldridge and others.
