about

On an island off the Washington coast, there lives a wonderful songwriter. We were lucky to play with this man in April 2016. After leaving the island both Sophie and Margot wrote lyrics about this beautiful place and man, but neither had any music for it yet. During the soundcheck of our gig in Long Beach some days later Sophie found a guitar part, and we discovered that both our lyrics could fit the same song! We played the new song the very next day in Manzanita, where it turned out that the object of our writing had made an appearance in the audience...

lyrics

The Island man is waving
waving us goodbye
His lips they are a smiling
teardrop in his eye

You think that you are lonely
you've got a friend
We know what you are feeling
we understand

oh...

And when the birds go silent
and storms come rolling on
Plunge into the darkness
and turn it into song

Times your spirit wanders
tims you soul roams
Be sure to find us in the tall grass
your song will bring us home

oh...

I'm right beneath the
shivering just like you
Beachglass grows weary
but the light still shines through

oh...

You think that you are lonely
You've got a friend

Margot and Sophie met at Victor Lacken's Wednesday session in Mulligans and found out their voices went very well together: Margots husky alto and Sophies emotive soprano complement each other rather nicely. Irish traditionals and folkie standards brought to the stage or the street in tender harmony! ... more
