Meeting Is Over is a stripped-down, acoustic anthem that celebrates the cycles of life and death, endings and renewal, farewells and reunion. A perfect song then to bid farewell to 2021 and to look forward to new horizons in 2022. This release is a cross-continental collaboration between two soulful and expressive singer/songwriters, Piers Faccini (France) and Moira Smiley (USA). Both artists are well known for partnering with many leading musical lights - Smiley with Tune-Yards, Solas, and Sam Amidon ; Faccini with Ben Harper, Camille, and Don La Nena.

Meeting Is Over is an old American song about “meeting on the other shore”. Driven by Smiley on the banjo with Faccini on guitar and the West African guembri, the single also features Irish multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan on guitar.

The haunting and yet comforting harmonies reflect on goodbyes with those we love the most—the ebb and flow of togetherness that life presents.


Mothers, now our meeting is over
Mothers, we must part
And if I never see you anymore
I will love you in my heart

and we'll land on the shore
yes, we'll land on the shore
yes, we'll land on the shore
and be safe forevermore
