From NYS Music...Athena Burke gives us a powerful and positive anthem to remind us to stand strong in these off-centered times. In her own words, I WILL NOT FALL is an emotional power anthem I wrote to help heal a past filled with trauma. A call to our inner strength in times of challenge. My sister, Lori had a life mantra. It came from our childhood. She had these dolls called Weebles. The slogan was ‘Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down.’ This song is dedicated to all of us who won’t fall down. And my sister Lori, who didn’t make it but inspired everyone around her. I hope this song will bring you love and power and strength on those days when you need it.
STAR is an uplifting pep talk to remind you that you have what you need even if you don't know what's next. It's a super positive loving song to walk you through your doubts. Backed with magical shimmery electro-pop vibrations, it reminds you who you are: A Star!
GOD IS HERE is a song of universal love. No matter who you are or what you've done, you are loved. It's a song of inclusion and invitation. It's about a love that has no boundaries. It's everything and it's no thing and it's all we really are. I hope it brings you a sense of belonging and love.
Produced by Devon Seegers of Bathrobe Robots.
If you landed here, you are likely doing the deep work of healing both your own and our collective trauma. Athena's gift is to bare her soul to sing the songs of strength, vulnerability, and raw emotion that resonate on the path to recovery.
Her new album, God is Here features eleven genre-blending songs of healing amidst heartbreak and loss, finding faith in something greater than what your eyes can see, and celebrating the humble joys in life, day by day. Athena’s tender yet powerful vocals and deeply honest lyrics are set against an earthy and shimmering electropop soundscape. Imagine a cross between Florence + The Machine and Brené Brown with deeply personal lyrics rooted in her own healing and devotional journey.
As an abused child, Athena reached her tiny toddler hands up to the piano to find harmony. This led to studies at the renowned Berklee College of Music, then street performing and concerts across the country. Inspired to heal her trauma, Athena trained in meditation, breathwork, and personal growth practices. Wanting to help others, Athena has given thousands of spiritual guidance and healing sessions and performances worldwide.
Athena feels that her early life cracked her open to receiving God's love as her guiding light. She sings honestly about the human experience of a devotional person.
No matter what you've done or what you believe, you are held in a love that is eternal, universal, and inclusive. God loves the oddballs and God wants to unite us, not divide us. A new era is dawning and although it is chaotic now, there's a groundswell of unity pulsing in our world.
