" Justin's cerebral poetry and Marian's beautiful, ethereal vocalizations unfold before an ever-shifting, trippy backdrop to stoke the fires of what can be achieved in multimedia performance.  Awesome!"

GRACE

This was the third Of the Sun song to be written and, although the setting and budget were modest, as the first to be filmed it was a big deal for Marian. The lyrics concern coming to a place of acceptance and trust, for a quieter, more restful, healing, meditative and nature-based life.

DRAGON DREAMS

The first Of the Sun concept video, fittingly for an epic song that was inspired by a lucid dream in the wake of a flotation/sensory deprivation tank session Marian experienced during her ongoing recovery process.  The imagery, symbolism and lyrics to this song concern love, hope and compassion for humanity and all living beings.

WRONG WAY

Three Meridian performances aside, the following two live videos are taken from Marian’s very first Of the Sun show - a ‘Stirling Social’ house concert at her former home on April 29th, 2018 - at which she performed her brand new material before an audience for the first time.  Despite the intimacy of the surroundings and small (though sold out) attendance, it was understandably a massive event for Marian and all present. 

The lyrics to Wrong Way concern a willingness to follow one's own path and trust in the journey.

WE ARE LOVE

Another live video taken from Marian’s very first Of the Sun show - a ‘Stirling Social’ house concert at her former home on April 29th, 2018 - at which she performed her brand new material before an audience for the first time. 

The lyrics to We Are Love concern an understanding that journeying inwards gives us the gift of our own limitless love.
