Folk Duo Timber Choir Release Nostalgic Single “Initials”

“Each of us carries a unique collection of memories, full of happiness, sadness, joys and trials. The cumulative effect of years gone by has shaped, formed, and molded us into who we are today. How do you let go of the heavier things, though – the failures, mistakes, missed opportunities, regrets? As time goes by, these experiences can be viewed through a new perspective; instead of seeing them as isolated incidences, they are contained by and connected to everything that happens after. From this vantage point, each experience ultimately carries great value, shaping us into who we are today and who we are yet becoming. Like an old tree standing in the middle of the forest, displaying visible evidence of wet seasons and dry seasons, storms, fires and freezes, we are still standing, and we are still growing.”

Amy Speace Announces New Album with The Orphan Brigade, There Used To Be Horses Here

Looking back on a twelve-month span between her son’s first birthday and the loss of her father, award-winning singer and songwriter Amy Speace culled eleven new songs directly from her depth of personal experiences—childhood memories, coming of age in New York City, and losing a parent while learning to become one—to create her new full-length album, There Used to Be Horses Here; out April 30th on Proper Records/Wind Bone Records. While many of the subjects on the album are heavy, There Used to Be Horses Here isn’t a sad record. Instead, it’s a direct reflection of that year in Speace’s life, propelled by a playwright’s eye for detail, a performer’s gift of vocal delivery, a poet’s talent for concise writing, and the extraordinary musicianship of collaborators, The Orphan Brigade. The end result is a sum much greater than its parts; a calling card for fans and critics alike to ask themselves whether Speace still fits only into the folksinger box she’s long been placed in—or perhaps, with this new album, she deserves to be seen in a new light.
