Album Notes
What is it that compels us to leave home, to leave family, our places of origin; to travel to places unfamiliar? For Bethany Erickson and Jenny Kochsiek it was a dream, a knowledge and an experience of beauty rooted deep in their lives. Something swept them from the Midwest to Brooklyn, NY where they have built a musical life, playing and singing in the venues of New York City as The Ericksons.
Their songwriting began years before moving to New York. Bethany, living in Wisconsin, committed her life to songwriting soon after leaving college. Jenny’s journey led her to New York to become a teacher in the summer of 2005. Despite the distance, destiny brought the two sisters back together, and their paths became intimately intertwined as they discovered the musical possibilities within each other. It is through making music together that the pair attempts to live honestly and find beauty even in the darkest of places.



to write a review


A friend recommended me to this album, and it is absolutely beautiful. The harmony created by these two women resonates with the soul. Initially my favorite songs were "What if" and Pale Skin" but those are being leapfrogged by "Northwind" and "One More Time". I can't imagine how good they would sound live.


Beautiful album!
These women's voices are gorgeous and layer beautifully, and the songs are haunting yet hopeful. Each song is powerful and emotionally evocative - personal favorites are "What If," "We Write It Down," and "Please, Please, Please." Already looking forward to The Ericksons sophomore album!...
