Further Information

Intricately layered and multi-textured, Falconberry's avant-folk songs are the aural equivalent of the disparate and wondrous landscapes of the United States. Trace the back roads branching out from Dearborn, Michigan and the Leelanau Peninsula across the country to Austin, Texas to understand Falconberry's personal and musical history. An adept lyricist, Falconberry has always captured the stunning imagery of her surrounding physical geography, as evident on her last acclaimed album, Leelanau. Written in a series of solitary retreats into remote areas of the Ozarks, Lincoln National Forest, the Buffalo River, and White Sands, New Mexico, these songs chronicle an introspective, metaphysical journey set to a backdrop of the American continent. Drawing from her early experiences with classical music through her work as a ballet dancer, Falconberry couples traditional notions with influences from Austin's diverse independent music community to create intricate, modern folk songs with an experimental edge. Falconberry's transfixing live performances have the ability to turn a chattering bar into a pin-drop silent room, but she also enjoys finding inherently quiet spaces to perform her elegant chamber pop.

Staff Reviews

Intricately layered American chamber-folk. Enigmatic, poetic songs full of vivid, natural imagery set amongst clean, elegant arrangements. One to check out if you're into Emma Pollock or Sufjan Stevens.
