Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour with Mariam Massaro
On the Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour, singer/songwriter Mariam Massaro and composer/producer Robert Sherwood collaborate with Craig Harris and special guests to produce a unique live musical experience where pure inspiration is interwoven with dynamic and unusually sensitive musical expression. The show features completely original songs created in the moment from Mariam’s inspirations, often from dreams and feelings based on current life experiences here and throughout the world as well as from the beauty of nature, blended with intergalactic channelings from her Twin Flame lover Ashento. Starting in January 2012 The Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour has attracted over 75,000 listeners from all corners of the globe. As The Gaea Star Band enters their fourth year they’re excited with the release of their latest album “Who We Are” on Applehead/Sony Films and Records. “Who We Are” is a unique collection of tracks pulled from the last couple of years of shows that reflect an upbeat, original spirit with a global medicine rock flavor.
The Gaea Star Crystal, Awakening the Tribes of Light, book 1, is a celestial adventure when the earth’s, (known as Gaea Star) whalesongs are heard throughout the universe, seeking help to save her elemental resources from the uncaring greedy ones bent on taking everything without regard for her beauty.
The Archangels, Michael and Gabriel summon all those sympathetic to Star Sirius for a momentous meeting, where the council chooses a gifted brigade of Light-workers to serve on the first wave to the precious earth, to help humanity awaken to their true spiritual dynamic powerful selves to restore harmony.
All of the beings of love and light, the angels, fairies, unicorns, and ancient elders bless the brigade with their wise teachings, crystals and guiding support from afar. A timeless twin flame love story with Ashento, an ascended master and one of the lightworkers, is woven in and of course the shadow forces attempt to stop the quest by infiltrating into the mission to sail to Gaea Star.
Blessed by Light-Filled Love, the Celestial Teachings of Ashento by Mariam Massaro, is an autobiography of her awakening as a spiritual medicine healer and creatress of the arts. Mariam meets her Twin Flame, Ashento, an ascended being from the celestial realms, who has been united with her in love for eons. Ashento’s deeply spiritual teachings are heard by Mariam as a gentle voice that speaks through her waking and in her dreams. Ashento is dedicated to guiding humanity through this powerful time of great change and awakening on the Earth. This is a powerful fascinating true story of Mariam discovering how to work with spiritual inspiration to manifest a positive uplifting radiant life as a way-shower, as an open, expressive, loving happy and fulfilled being. Blessed by Light-Filled Love guides your life journey in discovering your true empowered self.

Mariam’s Musical Inspiration This Week
Today on Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #453 the Gaea Star Band welcomes very special guest, singer/songwriter AJ Kiernan who presents some of her brilliant, poignant songs and helps the band ace some versions of Mariam’s songs. With Mariam Massaro on vocals, ukulele, acoustic guitar and Native flute, Craig Harris on congas and Native drums, Bob Sherwood on piano and AJ on vocals, acoustic guitar and ukulele, today’s show begins with a driving, tight, precise take of Mariam’s song “Distant Star” featuring fine acoustic guitar from AJ before she sings her beautiful, powerful “Find Me” with the band providing a whole lot of character. Back to Mariam for her lush song “One More Day” here delivered with a relaxed, inviting confidence as Mariam drives the groove with her acoustic guitar and AJ syncopates on her six string ukulele. The band then kicks into a gorgeous, reggae-folk powerhouse of a version of Mariam’s “Shamiyaya” that features a fine rhythm section and a great vocal from Mariam. AJ presents her heavily swinging “There’s Got To Be” with a gorgeous vocal and bluesy native flute and piano from Mariam and Bob. AJ sings her incredibly affecting “Just Like You” next, an exquisite country-gospel ballad that features AJ’s gorgeous vocal, harmonies and fine Native flute from Mariam, stately gospel piano from Bob and a heartbeat pulse from Craig. Next up is Mariam’s mystical “Feast In The Forest”, a midnight tale told ‘round a fire with a myth beautifully sung by Mariam over a fundamental, earthy groove. AJ’s driving protest song “Right Or Wrong” is given a powerful treatment by the band to wrap up today’s varied and deeply evocative show.
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #452 was recorded on a hot, humid July afternoon in 2021 at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts, and is an hour of visionary acoustic improvisational music featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals and today playing shruti box, ukulele, Native flute and acoustic guitar, Craig Harris playing congas and Native drums and Bob Sherwood playing piano and bass guitar. The band begins with the unusually lovely and evocative “In The Ways Of Light”, a brisk minor vibe with a gorgeous melody from Mariam. “Listen To The Rain” is a beautiful, mysterious raga with imaginative Hindustani figurations from Bob on piano over Mariam’s solemn shruti box drone. Mariam’s vocal is deeply spiritual and impassioned, punctuated by ghostly Native flute melodies. “Bless Your Life” is again underpinned with prayerful shruti box from Mariam as well as Native flute in this beautiful, percolating love song to Mariam’s celestial twin flame Ashento. “Unravel” is a lilting, gorgeous summer ballad with a beautiful, prayerful vocal from Mariam over a steady, veiled rhythm section and “Sail Into The Universe”, taken from the “Smooth Sailin’ Love Songs” CD is a beautiful love song here given a precise, polished reading. We finish today with one of Mariam’s finest environmental anthems, the stately “Restore” from the “Vision Quest” album.
