I go ride out on a space jeep A coconut portal to open new life An offering to bring new beings to light

Take my hand Come with me Mountains gold Rivers green Bluest waves Darkest caves Hope you find Find a way You can fly Lift you up Ancient wings Look at all the light You bring Well into the night Well into the day Hope you find Find a way You can fly

Green Place 03:58
Without a warning, Love I’ve kept you in my green place I will always remember your face And when I am listening I hear the whisperings of your grace Without a warning she gives And without a warning she takes Green Place Green Space

Kindness goes a long way Meadows grow in peaceful lay Maintenance in Loving To be honest You’re most attractive when you’re talking I love the sound of your voice You can tell me Maintenance in Loving

How could we be free? Everything Everybody Trying you trying me How could we be free? I want you to be free Always looking out for you I bring you flowers I bring you words Through your windows I can see clearly now
6.
When you hear the jungle Deep in the dark Paradise In your mind the jungle Leads you to the stars, the dark BIRDS TREES MOSS GREEN FLESH SCALES FUR TAILS Harmonize with the eyes of the lizard, of the hornbill Harmonize with the eyes of the dragonflies Waterfalls down your hair You have nothing to care Your breathing is deep Your senses are sharp You must feel the dark
7.
Faun, in the light Like gold I needed it to feel alive All words in real time Real life in time I know it takes time It feels like real life I know it takes time Healing

Angel in green Come to me
9.
In my mind, a lush green paradise. The eagle cries, sailing through the twilight. The species rich, run my hands through the moss, ferns, trees Much larger than me The mystery of green Reaching high Its a dark paradise I close my eyes and find If only for one night The mystery of green I want to surround myself in green
10.
Be the One 05:26
Beyond I can’t see past Beyond I can’t imagine A brighter life than this A brighter light than this Being the silent you look for the sound Being the lost you look for the found And when you are the one Then you’re looking for none Being the sun the sun You are you are Raise you up, Raise you up If you want me to be the one I’ll come with the sun Would you let me be the one? You are the tides You are the rays You are the mist You are the waves You are the mass The most high one You are the crown You are the sun

about

Anna Luisa soars in utopic hyperspace with interstellar synthscapes and optimistic songwriting in her debut solo album “Green,” an ambitious suite of shimmering summer-ready tracks that emphasize her craft as a healer, producer, and empathic collaborator.

“Green” invites listeners to Luisa’s “green place”—a new age refuge of lush landscapes and verdant soil, an oasis of collaborators and friends in the Los Angeles desert, where she lives and works. “I imagine us all chilling in a rich green ambiance of plants, herbs, birds, lizards… a conjured space to provide a mental and spiritual break from reality,” said Luisa.

Luisa is also a visual artist who produces her own videos and paints immersive environments that draw viewers into her lush, vibrant universe. These aesthetics extend to her sonic palette, evident in the warm analog synths and hymnal vocals that emanate from her music. Luisa also lends her work to further art forms—album opener “Offering” expands on music she produced for sci-fi video game “Jeep Jeep” and “Green Place” is derived from a composition made for contemporary dance artist Kevin Williamson.

Written while grieving the sudden passing of a close friend, Luisa set out to imagine a paradise for ancestors and friends through songs that could very well be heard in a dance floor or a new age wellness center. She chose the color green for its symbolism of growth, renewal, and abundance. “Green is the color of your heart chakra. I gaze inward towards my green place which rules the capacity to love, forgive, sympathize, grieve, give and receive,” Luisa said.
