Dana Falconberry & Medicine Bow Walk You Through the Enigmas of Nature on “From the Forest Came the Fire”

The result of the latest collaboration between Dana Falconberry and her band Medicine Bow is the folksy album From the Forest Came the Fire (Modern Outsider), in which Falconberry tells tales of her days exploring the forests. Released this past April, this effort is one more quality addition to Falconberry’s repertoire of lyrical tunes with vivid imagery of nature and wildlife.

Each song from “From the Forest Came the Fire” is beautifully composed and filled with rich textures paired with elegant harmonies. On these tunes pushed by unbroken rhythm, Falconberry (who has experience playing classical music) effortlessly describes the uniqueness and tranquility of the landscapes in the United States.

Falconberry brings Medicine Bow along with her on this aural journey, said band being a musically diverse group of expert players that consists of Karla Manzur (keys), Gina Dvorak (banjo, guitar), Lindsey Verrill (cello), Christopher Cox (bass), and Mathhew Shepherd. With this group, Falconberry is able to retain the traditional sounds of a folk tune, while also experimenting outside those boundaries to bring out a truly fresh sound.

Along with using strings and humming to enhance her music, Falconberry takes us through an ethereal and passionate experience lyrically, as she takes up the rivers, trees, and mountains as characters to describe her story. One comes away from this lyrically-focused music feeling closer to nature, which seems to be Falconberry’s very point in making it.

If you too would like to vicariously explore the enigmas of nature through music, give three selected tracks from the album a listen below, and check the groups’ Facebook for their current tour dates to hear it performed live.

New York singer/songwriter Troy premieres 'Daisy' + plays The Rock Shop tomorrow (6/16)

Following his November-released debut EP ‘When the Lights Came,’ New York soul man Troy today premieres his latest heart-tugging single, “Daisy” (streaming below). Progressing with a rugged warmth that is reminiscent of both Kings of Leon and Michael McDonald, the guitar-curled track evokes the titular, perished woman’s inner beauty with a purity that could only be beheld with awe. Listening to this impassioned song, it sounds as if Troy needed to sing it. Troy plays The Rock Shop tomorrow night (6/16). – Zach Weg

Track Premiere: Mark Allen-Piccolo - Do For You

We're always pleased to premiere new Bay Area music! This moment is no different as we premiere the new single by the San Francisco based singer-songwriter, Mark Allen Piccolo. Allen-Piccolo´s smooth indie ballad, Do For You is charming, well produced and sonically relatable. He sings about how the reality of life can be predictable and limiting. He attemps to challenge the status quo in his own thoughtful and non intrusive musical manner.

Please support local musicians. It gets harder and harder by the year to work and create in the Bay Area. We're always here to celebrate local music and make sure emerging artists have a voice. -je

¨Life is full of routine, responsibilities, demands from other people. Usually, you're so busy that you don't even have time to think about what it all means or adds up to. The song is a kind of dream about being freed from these responsibilities, and imagining what your life could be like if you could spend all of your time exploring your inner life--even better, exploring it with a companion who truly accepts you for who you are." -Mark Allen-Piccolo on his single, Do For You
