The Shadows – Nov 2013:
This album is a collection of shadows, of ladies and mirrors, demons and angels, the stories of my life and others who have nearly lost themselves, but return to tell the tale.
The Treasure Hunter and the Mink – Apr 2011
On a sunny Saturday morning, we have chocolate in our coffee, potato hash in our bellies, and Hazel is hard at work sewing the walls for a small glass house to be erected in the space behind our lovely Victoria. The house will be treated with a song, and a sound collage to be enjoyed by the ArtFarm visitors, at least until they are torn apart by the Nebraska winter.
These recordings follow a 1,000 mile bicycle trip through Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska, following that great pioneer path: the Oregon Trail. A thousand miles pedaled for beauty and inspiration, we did our best to capture some of that beauty during our month at Art Farm in Marquette, Nebraska.
Not a proper album, but a collection of artistic output while serving as residents at Nebraska’s ArtFarm. The process: Hazel writes, the song is videoed, the recording is finished with layers of found textures and farm instruments. The accompanying video for much of this collection is available on our Vimeo and Youtube pages.

Lullaby: Field Recordings – Apr 2008
This is a collections of songs written and/or recorded in bedrooms I have known, songs that are my dreams and midnight prayers. They are old rough recordings, but I thought it was time to share them.
