As these two played….I saw an innocence and a maturity, a naivety and a wisdom. I saw wild horses in these girls souls. I heard the hooves beating into the ground as their hearts beat into the rhythm of their vision….their journey…and where so they go from here?
Inspired by my first journey into the Redwoods…
HORIZON VU MUSIC Stands in support of the Poor Elijah Foundation
By Phil Cartwright
Sept 6, 2010
A while back, I wrote a piece for this blog entitled, “Delaney Bramlett deserves induction into the rock and Roll Hall of Fame” http://blog.horizonvumusic.com/?s=delaney.
We do believe that Delaney Bramlett deserves induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and as we have had more contact with the Bramlett family and friends, we have become supporters of the Poor Elijah Foundation (PEF). You’ll find the link under HorizonVU Music’s Partners and Friends on this page.
The Poor Elijah Foundation was created by Michele Bramlett (eldest daughter of Delaney Bramlett) along with her sisters and friends Maria Angel Schaefer, Lisa Marvin and Jaesen Kanter. Specifically the foundation works to “educate” the musician in the entertainment industry and provide financial assistance to working musicians who would otherwise slip through the cracks of the business. The long and short term plan is to raise monies through the production and promotion of charitable musical events, art exhibits, DVDs, CDs, and any other such fund-raising that are permitted under the povisions of the Foundation’s non-profit status. Once all corporation costs are met; the remaining monies raised will go directly to the education/mentoring of and or assisting the musicians with financial relief.

This painting is to honor the dream of the musician
and the heart of my dad.
The “wall of dreams” behind Elijah represents his aspirations.
In his vision he flies
He takes hold of the roots of the tree of his creativity.
He welcomes “the road” and all that entails
The swirling symbolism is meant to convey the desire to be heard
The bleeding heart in the tree represents the heart of an artist
sensitive, as all true artists are
He stands before an audience and he plays his love and sings his life
his music finally heard
In honor of dad, I placed a yellow pad of paper next to Elijah
My dad always had a yellow pad next to him…he was always writing
always creating songs
Dad was an amazing storyteller
The crossroads (upper left corner) honor the roots of my dad and his music
My dads favorite color is purple
