In Greek mythology, Medusa was the only mortal of the Gorgon sisters. A beauty that so enraged the Goddess Athena, she was cursed. Her beauty was removed, but even worse, made so ugly, with snakes for hair, a body of a dragon and a face that people, especially men, turned to stone just looking at her.

She is the hidden presence, absent from the world, only glimpsed in reflection. Medusa is the guardian of terrifying places, either the nocturnal borders of the world or the Underworld.

A power as great as Medusa’s cannot simply be eliminated; it must be transformed.

I saw you once, Medusa; we were alone. 
I looked you straight in the cold eye, cold. 
I was not punished, was not turned to stone - 
How to believe the legends I am told?...

("The Muse As Medusa" by May Sarton)

The myth of the Medusa is nothing more than a façade! Question if the Medusa does in fact have the ability to turn things into stone or if her fearful imagery comes merely from our perception of her?

Only the brave will question their fears, and if they will turn on a light, they will discover that there is nothing to be frightened or intimidated by but fear itself.

Medusa's music spirals from different muses of life experience in an authentic, genuine way. The truth cuts through with her lyrics and songs with such raw and open expression that is emotionally powerful, gutsy, capturing your soul in a perfect moment in time.

If you dare to look at the Medusa straight on, you will discover that the Medusa is not deadly, she's warm and beckoning.....and she's laughing.

I turn your face around! It is my face. 
That frozen rage is what I must explore - 
Oh secret, self-enclosed, and ravaged place! 
This is the gift I thank Medusa for.
