Summer 2019 has been quite a productive summer for us. We have several different creative projects in the works that will be coming together with rapidity in the fall.
In the beginning of the summer we started shooting music videos at Caitlyn’s childhood home for a community video series entitled, “Let Us All Be Home.” We invite you to join us on this musical journey to share your songs of home with us. We hope that you can take your own video of yourself/selves playing your songs of home in a lovely homey location, uploading it to your social media platforms, and tagging us. #vowlslikeowls #letusallbehome
We hope this project can be an ongoing engagement that brings our community of creators together.
Over the last few weeks we have started cultivating some of our new songs and started focusing on recording and releasing new music. That’s right, NEW MUSIC. We have not one, but TWO short EPs that we will be releasing this fall. The first is a home studio recording mixed by our drummer and dear friend Tristan Harvey and the second is a studio recorded EP that we recorded with Rob McGreggor at Goldentone Studio.
Our Fall Schedule is staring to fill up fast so stay connected with us and follow our social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and of course right here on our website!
This Hallow’s Eve some of us VOWLS had the opportunity to experience Suwannee’s Hulaween and performed on the Lost Stage at the Spirit Lake.
Suwannee’s Hulaween is an immersive art festival held during the Halloween season that brings living art and music together in a cohesive and beautiful way.
Caitlyn and Sweet Irene hit the Lost Stage on Saturday Night and sang sweet songs to rock your soul. With their captivating harmonies and sweet ukulele jams these precious gems created a sweet and sultry experience at the Spirit Lake.
From the vault we have our recordings from Spirit Fest 2017 at Heartwood Soundstage. Heartwood is a live recording venue that offers high quality audio and visual recordings of musicians and performing artists. We had so much fun performing at Spirit Fest and hope that this fest reemerges in 2019.
VOWLS has had our busiest year of gigging yet! Now that summer is coming to a close in Florida we are taking November off to work on new material and unreleased material for your audial pleasure.
This October we went out to the Roots Revival Festival at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. We enjoyed the beautiful weather, the campfire jams and enjoyed time with our families. After the Leftover Salmon set we played a live set (with the accompaniment of our great friend Ben) on the corner of the campground’s main road.
The set was truly magical.
One World is Enough – Sting
You Can’t Hide What’s Inside
Matter and Blues
Thank You Bruce Lee
(And More! As I type this a month after the fact I am having trouble remembering what else we played.)
Over all Roots was an A+ weekend that we all needed.
Our great friend Arielle D’Ornellas took some amazing photos of us as well. Arielle is a great photographer and an amazing musician, artist and friend.
