A collection of sonic postcards from an mythical road trip through the back roads of the American landscape, with detours to haunted places where memories and dreams intersect. The pastoral journey meanders along the edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, across the prairies and cornfields of the heartland, and through the Ozarks, the Piedmont, and the coal fields of southern Appalachia. The tales woven into the shadows of these places are razor-edged and real, steeped in history and imbued with spirit of place, with an American gothic undercurrent. Honest vocal performances are enveloped in textural harmonies and atmospheric arrangements to form the band’s mutant folk sound.

Backwoods of My Mind (2022)
The band's debut album——eight dark, unsettling tracks that take the listener down haunted paths far from the main roads to the eerie places where boundaries between the real and the imaginal disappear. Songs of heartbreak and longing, lost innocence and betrayal, guilt and forgiveness are punctuated with atmospheric arrangements, soaring harmonies, and sweeping violin solos.
