"Darker State of Grace" is one of S. J.'s oldest recorded tunes. This is one of S. J.'s favorite versions, captured live at a concert in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

From S. J.:
"I chose "Darker State of Grace" for Witchy Ways because I wrote it on Halloween night in 1998, and it's one of the few songs I've written in which I mention Halloween by name. It was inspired by several of the cute musician boys in my life at the time. To this day, I love the imagery of the lyrics in all their witchy-ness: sickle moons, circle dances, and ravens. I wasn't a dark little poet or anything. (grin)"

A portion of all download sales of WITCHY WAYS goes to support Wolf Haven International, as part of the Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Trick-or-Treat.
