about

Dreampop, swirling atmospheric, and luscious fairytale-like dreams…

“Both earthly and ethereal, her music, lyrics and images guide us through an alluring world that seems strange yet familiar, distant but as close as your heart. The veil of the dreamworld is near; the Eternal Feminine is calling.” -Steve Davis, Associate Producer HEARTS OF SPACE Radio Program

Paulina returns with a new album of sensuous, mesmerizing atmospheric compositions to reinvigorate the jaded soul. Using her sultry voice as an ethereal instrument in combination with fluidly-layered otherworldly soundscapes, Phantom Gardens draws the listener into a fantastic world of fairytale-like dreams. Ethereal whispers, synths, samples and electronic beats are pure poetry for your fascination and delight.

We first met Paulina Cassidy with her hypnotic version of “Frosty the Snowman” on Projekt’s 2012 Ornamental holiday sampler. In 2014, we were given Sugar Wingshiver, a full album of whimsical and lushly-textured songs. 2018 brought Drawing Up A Storm, an album of aqueous melodies.

Fruitful with a circuitry of reflective ambient tracks and ethereal dreampop, Phantom Gardens entices the listener into a landscape of lush celestial gardens sprawling from the borderlines of dreams. Connect with the minds of ghostly orchids and fly away with flowering sylphs. Glide through galactic gardens of starlight and slip into the underworld with a kingsnake. Fusing melancholy resonances of earthly and spiritual realms, the thirteen songs of Phantom Gardens are hauntingly graceful and serene, conjuring a personal haven in which to unwind, renew, and recharge.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Paulina paints, writes, and crafts songs from her home studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Creatress of tarot and oracle card decks, Paulina always has something new in-the-works. Her audio catalogue also includes four self-released CDs, an holiday EP Projekt release, and two full-album Projekt releases. Visit her website at: www.paulina.ws

Track Name: Dragonfly
Move through skies to ease the day
Carried through the hideaway
Halfway bridge in time with me
You only need believe to see

Move through skies to ease the day
Carried through the hideaway
Halfway bridge in time to be
Believe believe when you see me
Track Name: Flowering Sylph
Skin of rosebud silk
Bones of reishi milk
Blood of sacred rain
Their tears make colour stains

Watch them fly away

Veins of ivy vine
Heart of cherry wine
Blood of sacred rain
Their tears make colour stains

Watch them fly away
Track Name: Through the Eyes of Orchids
Hello
Through the eyes of orchids
If we could only hold your hand
We could help you fly
Hello
Through the eyes of orchids
If we could only hold your hand

We could hold your heart
La la la la la
We could hold your heart

Hello
Through the eyes of orchids
If we could only hold your hand
We could help you fly
Hello
Through the eyes of orchids
If we could only hold your hand
Track Name: Bluebird
Catch the light of you
Looking up for you
Looking out for you
Bluebird singing
Bluebird flying
Track Name: Stardust Seedlings
Catch the stars of you breathing through
Fall to earth into this compass hand

Between the tidal waves
Between the shadows
Between the tidal waves
Of stardust seedlings

Catch the stars of you breathing through
Fall to earth into the speed of life

Between the tidal waves
Between the shadows
Between the tidal waves
Of stardust seedlings

Catch the stars of you breathing through
Fall to earth into this second sight
Track Name: She Plays in Gardens of Starlight
She walks on sunbeams
She plays in gardens of starlight

She glides through milky ways
She plays in gardens of starlight

Fly high, Lily

Green eyes in a midnight sky
She plays in gardens of starlight

Our feline queen knows the way
She plays in gardens of starlight

Fly high, Lily
Track Name: Talk With Tigerlilies
I tune to your frequency
I see you as you see me
We've come this far

I tune to your frequency
I hear you as you hear me
We've come this far

Weaving ways for this to be
Like climbing specter maple trees
Finding out it's not a dream
When I talk with tigerlilies

Weaving ways for this to be
I'm handing you the golden key
More than just a passing daydream
When I talk with tigerlilies

I tune to your frequency
I feel you as you feel me
We've come this far
Track Name: Jewels for a Kingsnake
And your feet are safe
In this sacred domain
And your hands await
The serpent brigade

Coil down and wait
In an underground escape
Be brave and engage
Take the poison away

Jewels for a kingsnake
Treasures for an angel
Kisses for a kingsnake
Home before the rainfall

Retreat to the lair
Crossing paths with prowess
A little worn but boundless
With eyes ever watchful

Coil down and wait
In an underground escape
Be brave and engage
Take the poison away

Jewels for a kingsnake
Treasures for an angel
Kisses for a kingsnake
Home before the rainfall
