We Are So Much More -Demo (2017)

Lynette Diaz

A song written in September 2017 after a year with only fragments of music happening and work obligations tipping an unhealthy balance. I'd been playing around with the melody for awhile but finally the words came through one evening. A sense of deep gratitude for all that was, is and all that will be..

The Redwood Demo Session (2018)

There's a 100 year old Redwood in the Christchurch Botanical Garden. It's been struck by lightning and survived major earthquakes. It will be here for many hundred years more. Solace is a hopeful and inspired instrumental about grief, love and growth.

Shift Your Spirit

Lynette Diaz

Written in 2008. A decade old now and back into my regular repertoire. As I do more street performance, certain songs are feeling more poignant and a counterbalance to cover songs. Offered as a free download. If inspired, share with with others! Arohanui! xx

Original Words and Music: Lynette Diaz This was one of those organically written songs that just flowed out of me quite quickly and had no clue of theme or where it was heading until it was done. I tend to think of it as a gift, for that's what it felt like at the time. Arohanui xx

An updated demo version recorded on 11-11-2019 and the original demo version, recorded in 2008.

Original Instrumentals - 2019 Demos

Lynette Diaz

Original Instrumentals Composed/Performed/Recorded/Engineered by: L Diaz Wellington, NZ 2019

A Healing Journey - Life is a full blown journey. I'd like to think it's a healing journey, and we are all heroes of our heart, doing our best in the moment. Blessings on the journey. Arohanui! xxoo (Composed/Recorded - 16 May 2019)

A New Philosophy - An instrumental that finally came together in its current form on the New Moon (5 April 2019). At the moment it's going to remain as an instrumental, although I have a few piecemeal lyrics that I'd been humming through as I've built the song over the past few weeks.

Woke this morning with these lines written in my subconscious, "We are a harbour and we are a dream." A song unfolding, a lullaby quality..and working on my fingerstyle guitar skills.

The Cormorant Demo Session (2018)

Lynette Diaz

The photo is a Cormorant (Spotted Shag) that swam up to me while I sat alone on the Wellington Harbour waterfront. The Cormorant represents both light and dark, and the ability to both sink and swim, then to patiently await the opportunity to fly again.
