Druid Queen is a collection of songs we found hidden away on scraps of paper, shards of audio tape, and in the depths of charred spiral notebooks. Oh yeah, and we remembered some of it too.
Through the process of accidental recollection we were able to reconstruct these songs; splicing in more current DNA when the archival code was too damaged. Combining melodies and verses with as much reverence as possible for the original source material, we were again back in the cabin where the music was everything. It was fun getting to know those two teenagers again, and pushing those sweet memories through these rusty pipes.
We would like to thank the many people who have helped us get here. We’ve enjoyed your support and willingness to share this classroom we all live in.
We recorded this over the course of a year. It was actually a little less than 52 Thursdays; seven and a half weeks as the crow flies, and suddenly one day it was done.
Special Thanks go to: C.C., Rufus, and Sutton King for lending their shining voices to Face in the Sky.
Thanks to freesound.org for the ocean, animals, and weather.
