Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson, Bill Henderson and Claire Lawrence talk about recording the album Grizzly Bear Town on location in Haida Gwaii, and about the song Landslide Lady.
Landslide is a crest of the Skedans Ravens that represents the irresistible power of the Chief—one that inspires people, draws out and builds upon others’ strengths, instead of speaking about others’ weaknesses. In nature, landslides occur when the land is out of balance. A powerful and destructive force, it can also be cleansing: removing the imbalance so that life begins anew in the area of the slide. Landslide Lady is written from the perspective of a landslide, expressing the hope and belief of the earth in humanity to restore the balance and start anew.
