THISTLE is a Chamber Folk trio that performs the original music of harpist and singer Thistle Jemison. The lyrics are inspired by fairytales, poetry, and literature, while the music draws influences from the folk, jazz, western classical and South Indian classical genres. This haunting harp and voice centered music has been described as angelic, beautiful, and hypnotic. With lyrics inspired by dark fairy tales and poetry, THISTLE is meant to be heard by candlelight anywhere there is beauty–in a garden, historic church, or cemetery. This music is meant to serve as an access point to the spiritual world that lies behind a veil, and which can be experienced through different states of mind. Exaltation, mystery, and wonder are the emotions THISTLE wishes to evoke.
