“Celestial songstress Lia Scallon, long acclaimed for her unique vocals, visits the world of the People of the Mounds. The secrets of the Otherworld are revealed on eight tracks of haunting, breathtaking music with whispery vocals and lush instrumentals. This is a record that you can put on and just disappear in the music, whether you be human or fairy-folk. Scallon’s crystalline voice floats in the air like some diaphanous mist. You can feel the magic.” Read Full Review

“Lia Scallon’s ‘Song of the Sidhe’ is a stunningly crafted, richly and deeply textured recording, featuring the artist’s amazing vocal talents as well as a host of instrumentalist guest artists. Trying to encapsulate in my brief available words, the magic contained in this album is impossible. Powerful but also sublime, the music and vocals are beguiling in their beauty.”

“Lia Scallon’s outstanding and glorious new release, ‘Song of the Sidhe’, is best listened to in it’s entirety first, to allow all that has been created to sink in.

Brilliantly produced, lovingly created, it is an album that demands to be part of the top shelf of your musical greats.” Read Full Review
Steve Sheppard – One World Music
“As she did on The Luminous Pearl, vocalist Lia Scallon, redefines New Age vocal music on ‘Song of the Sidhe’, a concept album rooted in the mysticism of the land of Faerie. Supported by world-class musicians, and singing in the language of the Faerie kingdom itself, Scallon transports the listener into the realm of myth and legend, suffused with beauty, sadness, and a sense of urgency, brought alive through beautiful music and haunting vocals.”

The Story within the Music
The pre-destined time has come. Tea Tephi, High Queen of the Irish Faerie Kingdom, the ‘Sidhe’, (pronounced Shee) passionately invokes her King and her people to emerge from the Hollow Hills. The King Heremon returns to her side, and assisted by those awake and conscious Humankind, the portal between worlds opens. From the mists of time, the long-forgotten, mystical ‘Sidhe’ rise up and in that moment, the huge Diamond beneath the Enchanted Lake is reactivated. Triumphantly, the High Queen and High King ride forth, to stand once more upon the sacred ‘Stone of Destiny’. Faerie-kind and Humankind joyously unite, to celebrate the heralded Golden Age of Tara’s New Reign.
Who are the Sidhe?
The Sidhe (Shee) are descendants of the Tuath De Danann, a peace-loving, ancient Irish race, driven underground by the Milesians to become the people of the Hollow Hills, the Faerie people.
In Ireland, the Sidhe with their magical powers, are seen as neighbours, and the veil between the Faerie and Human worlds believed to be gossamer thin. Some say we originally belonged to the one race who came from in the stars, but that over time, humans descended more into matter, whilst our Sidhe brothers remained in the more fluid realms of the Ethers.
Song of the Sidhe is the Faerie Kingdom’s clarion call to humanity for us to reunite with them and the Great Web of Life, to heal our broken world. The Sidhe envision the dawning of a new era, one where they can walk beside us, helping us to reconnect with ourselves and the natural world. Now is that time! As the human heart responds with Love to the music, the portals between the Faerie and Human worlds will open, heralding a new era alive with magic, and mystical blessings.
Now that my task of manifesting the Sidhe’s song from the ethers has been completed, it’s time to pass the baton on to you, the listener, to unfold the next chapter. You have been drawn to this music because there’s a role for you to play! The Sidhe have chosen you to help anchor their energetic frequencies into the geographic location in which you live, and through which you travel, by playing this music.
Ideally, on first listening, play the album in it’s entirety. The music unfolds a specific story that takes you deep into the world of the Sidhe, so although each track is a complete journey in itself, by experiencing the entire album, you will be immersed in the Sidhe’s energy in a very special way.
As you listen…
Envisage these powerful sound frequencies finding their way into every nook and cranny of the earth around you; see them wrapping around every majestic tree, every plant, every stone and every elemental being in the vicinity; see them merging into the veins and leylines of Mother Earth, and feel the Sidhe of the region in which you live, responding; see them releasing their grief and illuminating with joy, as they witness their story being told to the world. And with that, envisage them triumphantly emerging through the new portals of Light opened by your Love, and your pure heart’s intent.

Music Reviews & Testimonials
‘Song of the Sidhe’ is a studio recorded album, produced to the highest standard and quality, echoed in the physical presentation. The 6-Panel Gatefold pack and additional 8-Page Booklet, feature magnificent artwork throughout. The package includes wonderful information about the Sidhe and the creation of the music, offering a greatly enhanced depth of experience for the listener.
CD versus MP3
I’m a strong supporter of physical CD format over MP3! MP3’s were created to allow us store 1000 songs on our iPod, but the process, the music is compressed, and stripped of some of the warmth, depth and quality.
Increasingly, musicians are offering their music on vinyl record, in a desire to return to the warmth of Analog. I try to retain as much of the original ‘Analog’ feel as possible, by recording in a professional studio with the technology to do so, including using a $12,000.00 microphone to retain the integrity of the vocal.
All my Sounds of Sirius albums are woven through with high frequency Sound/Light codes from Source. The purpose of these creations is to engender harmony and peace within the listener, to facilitate healing, and to activate dormant, soul gifts. This is why I strive for the highest quality at every level of production. The more fully immersed the listener can be in the subtleties and nuances of the musical experience, the more likely it will be, that healing can occur.
I am a realist however! It’s not always possible, or convenient, to listen to music on CD, so you’ll find both Mp3 and CD versions of all my albums are available here on my website!
