About the name PhÆDRx (ΦαιΔΡξ)

The name PhÆDRx comes from several sources.

· Phaedra, a Greek mythological figure mentioned in the lyrics of "Some Velvet Morning".

Some Velvet Morning is a 1967 Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood song.
Primal Scream covered it twice with Kate Moss.
I prefer Primal Scream's 1st version from 2002, on the Evil Heat album,
because hearing it led me to take the name Phaedra & turn it into PhÆDRx.

· Phaedrus, the title of a dialogue written by Plato

Plato's Phaedrus dialogue covers topics such as love & the human experience.
These are 2 central thematic elements in PhÆDRx songs.

Ephedra, a medicinal preparation traditionally used by ancients.

This reference calls to mind the timeless, powerful & spiritual healing force of music.

· The isopsephy value of ΦαιΔΡξ is 675 which corresponds to Greek words for "earth" & "divine".

These are 2 more central thematic elements in PhÆDRx songs- nature & the metaphysical.

· The letter arrangement in PhÆDRx also has several more personal meanings


Always look up.

There is a timeless, powerful & spiritual healing force in music.
Music can be an expression of the deepest kinds of love.
It can make a big impact in our lives and our world, and it can shape our reality.
