..."All Those Treasures In Your Nest; Can You Tell Me Which One Is The Best?"
That's a crucial line from Emy's original song "The Magpie", written on a life-changing Artist Residency at the famed UCross in rural Wyoming. It's hard to say what might be the "best" of this collection of songs by Emy Phelps, reaching across 2 decades of songwriting. But the idea of family, love, attachment, separation, and many of the most important issues that humans face are right here, framed in a wide-ranging acoustic palette presided over by one of Acoustic String Music's most wizardly characters, Darol Anger, who contributes not only state-of-the-art pop fiddling, but numerous other memorable instrumental moments on such instruments as Octave Mando-Uke, Left-handed Accordion, electric screwdriver, and Fuzz Octave Mandolin.
A truly epic foundation is laid by two modern bass masters: the spectacular Ethan Jodziewicz, and the heir apparent to Danny Thompson's bass crown: Aidan O'Donnell. The orchestra surrounding and permeating these songs is a Who's Who of modern acoustic music, with rising stars trading licks with celebrated heroes of the genre. Emy's genius is for classic poetic simplicity of lyric, combined with a lush forest of sound rivaling the Pacific Northwest densest gardens. Two great traditional songs made it into this collection, fitting seamlessly into the weave of sound and emotion. Which of these treasures will speak most directly to you?

All arrangements: Anger&Phelps
Recorded and mixed by Darol Anger at Fiddlistics Studios, Arlington MA
Mastered by Ken Lee
Cover art: Pat Scalo
Cover design and hand lettering: Emy Phelps

Emy Phelps sang lead vocals on all cuts except While You Were Sleeping, and played guitar on very song except Angel Gabriel.
Darol Anger played Octave Mandolin on everything except The Blackest Crow, and 5-string fiddles on most everything except While You Were Sleeping and Pretty Bird. He played other instruments where noted. Emy plays a Santa Cruz Guitar and a beat-up '51 Martin and uses D'Addario Strings and Ear Trumpet Microphones. Darol plays Nathaniel Rowan, Barry Dudley, and AES violins and a beloved Austin Clark 8vb Mandolin and uses D'Addario strings on everything, even toast.
