    "You have created your own world in which you allow the listener a 40 minute pass into the imagination of a dreamscape. Well worth the trip and thoroughly enjoyable" ~ Richard J. Parfitt (Bath Spa University MMus Songwriting feedback for album 'Shapes & Ladders'), November 2012

    "Sumita has this playful, child-like sound in her vocal...this song ['Money Tree Spider'] is a beaut, quirky and fresh...I don't think there is anyone like this in the music industry right now!" ~ Polly James (Absolute Radio Presenter), November 2012

lyrics

There’s something in the jungle too big for the bear trap,
This journey seemed like fun but I think it’s time to head back
Ginormous paws indented upon the golden beach
I think they’re trying to tell us, ‘Stay away, keep out of reach’

Don’t be so silly, 
Noones out to harm you, so don’t you harm your mind
Embrace the lion’s den, 
Have a look inside, you’ll look surprised 
When you find

Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never learnt to frown
When he roars with laughter his sunny mane grows bright
Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never once felt down
Each mighty smile will light a thousand eyes,
He’ll paint the blue-drops yellow through the night

I think they’re out to get me,
All the weeds in the undergrowth
I don’t think I’m quite ready
I’ll take a breath, I’ll take it slow

I’ve heard a million fables,
Dark myths and terror tales
Our lives are far too precious
I think it’s time to bail

Don’t be so ignorant,
Explore the world and you won’t be so blind
Take a breath in the lion’s den,
Have a look inside, you’ll look surprised
And you’ll find

Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never learnt to frown
When he roars with laughter his sunny mane grows bright
Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never once felt down
Each mighty smile will light a thousand eyes,
He’ll paint the blue-drops yellow,

Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never learnt to frown
When he roars with laughter his sunny mane grows bright
Mr Dandylion’s a dandy lion, never once felt down
Each mighty smile will light a thousand eyes,
He’ll paint the blue-drops yellow through the night
