Astaria’s Musical Journey

Astaria’s musical journey reads like a tapestry, woven with the threads of her life’s varied chapters. A classically trained pianist from the tender age of 4, she soon found that the soulful resonance of keys played intuitively was her true calling. At 12, she veered from her devotion to learning the intricacies of music to pursue a passion for clothing design, crafting vibrant creations that adorned her during nights of endless dance at raves—a world where music and her bespoke designs became her companions through unique artistic expression.

Music had been Astaria’s steadfast ally during darker times, a legacy passed down from her mother, a songwriter who left a musical imprint with three published albums before her 2007 passing. Celtic roots further enriched her lineage, as her grandfather effortlessly embraced any instrument, infusing the family history with an enduring love for music.

Returning to the piano at age 31, Astaria found herself once again effortlessly channeling melodies. In 2019, she compiled a collection spanning childhood compositions to newfound creations, showcasing her intuitive connection with this magnificent instrument. The album, named Aurora was birthed into the world, telling a musical story of our collective human awakening journey. The true testament to the healing power of music unfolded for Astaria in 2014, when facing a dire thyroid auto-immune dis-ease diagnosis. Defying the doctor’s prognosis of a lifetime on medication, Astaria unearthed the vibrational healing within her own voice—a tool that opened, released, and strengthened, leading her to triumph over adversity. 

In the wake of her personal healing, Light of Sound emerged as Astaria’s heartchild, a beacon of empowerment inspired by her transformative journey. Her quest for deeper resonance with the power of voice led her to a 21-day singing retreat in Mexico, where a cathartic release guided her heart to the enchanting landscapes of Costa Rica and Guatemala. In 2022, Astaria co-produced “Hear Her” with Theo Grace, a heartfelt ode to Mother Earth, recognizing the myriad ways in which the planet communicates with us.

Astaria’s artistry extends beyond the piano keys, crafting harmonious soundscapes with her multidimensional voice, entwined with an array of instruments such as crystal bowls, chimes, flutes, medicine drums, and shruti. Her music, a testament to personal and planetary healing, invites listeners into transformative journeys, echoing the vibrant and resilient spirit of a musician whose life is an evolving symphony.

Long Bio

Astaria, Light of Sound: A Harmonious Tapestry of Healing and Empowerment

Embarking on a musical journey at the tender age of 4, Astaria, a certified Sound Healing Practitioner, Reiki Master, Shamanic Medicine Guide, Vocal Activation Coach, and Counsellor, has crafted a life symphony that transcends the boundaries of conventional education. Classically trained in piano, she discovered the heart’s resonance with intuitive keystrokes, an insight that would later shape her distinctive approach to sound and healing.

Astaria’s multifaceted journey led her away from the piano at 12, exploring the world of clothing design—a creative expression that mirrored the vibrant kaleidoscope of her soul. In the labyrinth of raves and all-night electronic dance parties, adorned in her own colorful creations, music became her steadfast companion through both jubilation and introspection.

Yet, music wasn’t merely an accompaniment; it was a lifeline during darker chapters. Her mother, a singer-songwriter who penned hymns for the church, laid the foundation for a musical legacy. Celtic roots and a musically gifted grandfather, who could play any instrument he got his hands on, further enriched the tapestry of her family lineage.

Rekindling her bond with the piano at 31, Astaria found herself effortlessly channeling melodies that spanned from childhood compositions to new, intuitively inspired creations. The transformative power of music revealed itself profoundly in 2014 when faced with a daunting thyroid auto-immune dis-ease diagnosis. Rejecting the prescribed lifetime of medication, Astaria uncovered the vibrational healing within her own voice—an instrument that not only healed but became the cornerstone of her practice.

In 2023, Astaria added another powerful chapter to her life’s narrative, free-birthing her daughter into the world in the jungle of Costa Rica. The resonance of her voice, a force of empowerment and opening, echoed through the lush surroundings, adding to the symphony of her life’s journey as she single-handedly guided her daughter Earthside.

As a certified Sound Healing Practitioner, Astaria employs her multidimensional voice, piano, crystal bowls, chimes, flutes, medicine drums, and shruti to create harmonious soundscapes. Astaria’s commitment to healing extends beyond personal triumphs. Light of Sound emerged as a testament to her empowerment journey, an endeavor inspired by her desire to share the transformative power of music, sound, and voice with others.

In her role as a Voice Midwife, Astaria extends her heart as a guide to those silenced by trauma and societal programming. Reclaiming their birthright, she empowers individuals to be authentically courageous and confident in their self expression. The journey involves guiding individuals to embody their most authentic nature, liberating the full spectrum of their energetic signature. Astaria facilitates safe spaces for clients to delve into their healing journey, awaken truth, and connect with the heart.

Her work is a profound expression of empowerment, offering techniques acquired through her own throat chakra healing journey. As she shares healing sessions with clients and community gatherings, Astaria understands that each being possesses a unique voice to share—a voice she empowers into freedom.

Astaria facilitates the emergence of creativity and the sharing of unique soul gifts, embodying her commitment to the holistic healing of the individual and the collective. With her multidimensional voice and a myriad of instruments, she invites individuals to experience a deeper connection with themselves, knowing that the liberation of the voice is the pathway to true freedom.

Droplets of Inspiration

I have had multiple sessions with Astaria, taken deep within, feeling myself wrapped in a blanket of sound. After each session I felt reborn.

It is difficult to give words to such an experience without metaphors, but it truly felt as if I was reawakened from another life. I arose feeling incredibly grounded and rested!  My nervous system was settled and vibrating softly.

I recommend the experience, not just for curiosity, but for deep healing as well!
