about

**

"...breathtaking, sort of hushed folk music that’s both beautiful and mesmerizing while still capable of being called pop music...The band meshes the greatest parts of groups like JBM, Local Natives, and Austinites Balmorhea." - Austin Town Hall

"Dreamy Americana..." - Damn Arbor

"Check this out if you like acts like Bon Iver..." - Listen to the Mitten

Track Name: Cascades
Hey, I've been wrong. Slowly I fade. Shadows grow long, and roots wind away.
They only grow further from you. Days only go toward tomorrow.
Oh how my heart aches for the joys of yesterday.

I only know stories untold, miles alone, your tracks in the snow coupled and cold.

Oh how my heart aches for the joys of yesterday.
Oh how my eyes wait for a glimpse of the Cascades.

At the river's edge over the pass, what takes you there? Will it bring you back?
Upon the ridge when morning comes, what takes you there? Will it bring you back?

Oh how my heart aches for the joys of yesterday.
Oh how my eyes wait for a glimpse of the Cascades.
Track Name: Forget Their Names
Still way out upon the lake when the sun it stole away.
From the shore where we're skipping stones, all our friends have headed home.

Freckles on your shoulder blades, soon they too will fade away.
And you said that I was wrong, but I'm still here, and you are gone.

Burning leaves out in the field, I've got your letters but they're still sealed.
Fading light around me now, close the door and settle down.

And I know what you would say, "we might be strong but none will stay -
In the end it's all the same, we just move on and forget their names."

And you are gone.
Track Name: Distances
Cross the ridge in winter on your own.
Distances in darkness, a heart of stone.
Cross the pass in blindness but for the moon.
Lose the path and find it far from home.

Turning gray with winter right through your bones.
Distances like driftwood so far from shore.
Rivers to the sea will find their way -
Through hills and valleys gold they'll never stay.

We all run like the river wild in the hills -
All at once we wander away.

One by one, I watch them falling.
In the end what was I wanting?
Find my way back where I came from,
Lonely lights through lonely pines will lead.

In the air I hear them calling. Oh my brothers all is fallen.
In the end what have we gotten?
Lonely lights through lonely pines will guide.

Cross the ridge out in the darkness. Hear the wolves call in the forest. Wind through woods thinned from the winter. There is no way, no way back now.

Cross the ridge out in the darkness. Hear the leaves crash in the forest. In the air I see them falling. Take the air now, take them all out.
