about

BEATING DRUM presents HEAR MY VOICE in a new collection of recordings produced by Piers Faccini and released in limited edition 12” vinyl, Beating Drum aims to carry the torch for an eclectic and innovative 21st century form of songwriting. Behind every beautiful song lies an original story and with this new series, the label aims to champion the cause of some of today’s exciting new voices.
For Hear My Voice, the label aims to give a platform to a select group of new and exciting artists the label encounters. Each Ep, beautifully conceived by house designer Uncle O will feature a portrait of the artist drawn by Piers Faccini. The first releases will feature three distinct voices, Gnut, TUi MAMAKi, and Horsedreamer.

TUi MAMAKi can thank her adventurous troubadour family for giving her a taste for sounds from far-away places. Born and raised in New Zealand, she ended up more recently, living and studying music in Bulgaria, having fallen in love as a young child with their traditional folk singing. Her four beautiful songs for the ep combine the odd meters and musical styles of traditional Bulgarian music with the English of her native New Zealand.

Track Name: Follow
First smile of the morning
Do you know which one I mean?
Long lined horizons
This heart is following itself 
Home

Last sigh of the evening
Do you know which one I mean?
Long lined horizons
This heart is following itself 
Home

Praises from dawn till sundown
Prayers through the dark 
Long life just beginning
Do you know which one I mean?
Short life, ending
This heart is following itself 
Home

Praises...
Track Name: Lift Off
You in my dreams again
You in my dreams again
Is it you or is it me?

Friend to a lover, a friend
Friend to a lover and you
Change your skins so easily

I'm ready for lift off...

I'm not the one that I was
I'm not the one I was
Loving you grew who I am

I'm not the one that I was
I'm not the one I was
Losing you broke me open

I'm ready for lift off...
And I've got just the ticket.
Track Name: Be One
I read, I heard, I wrote words of wisdom
All over the surface of my heart
That the day it breaks they may fall in
Fall in, fall in… now

I saw, I dreamt, I drew shades of loving
All over the surface of my home
That the day it burns, they may float free
Float free, float free… now

I ate, I drank, I stole good ideas
From gardens, from minds freed of fear
That the day I lose I may be one
Be one, be one… now
Track Name: Riuwaka
You are like the sun -

How is it possible that you chose the light?
Seems like another bird walked into your mind
How is it possible that I chose the light?
Seems like another bird walked into my mind

'cause the water's so clear, I can't resist it
'cause the water's so clear, I will surrender
And let the shadows show me the sun...

You are like the moon -

How is it possible that you felt as though
You were half a man when, in truth you are whole?
How is it possible that I felt as though
I was half a woman when, in truth I am whole?

'cause the water's so clear, we can't resist it
'cause the water's so clear, we will surrender
And let the shadows show us the sun...
