Album Notes
"..the voice... I thought I was listening to an angel..." (Yakima Folklife)
" An exceptionally strong vocalist..." (San Diego Troubadour)
".. one of the best kept secrets in the Celtic world." (Fan, Port Gamble Maritime Music Fest)

With dreamy textures, a velvet voice, and the echoes of the Celtic winds, the new release from, award winning, songwriter, Fae Wiedenhoeft, will pull at your heart, sing to you of sweet sadness, and remind you that all is not lost.

Many across the globe revere Fae Wiedenhoeft’s traditional sounding compositions and powerful contemporary pieces. She and her band SeaStar have enjoyed seven successful years of playing across the US, Canada, Ireland, Turkey, Scotland, and, most recently, Poland. The new record, Castle Walls, is composed of some of Fae's earliest works, traditional pieces that she adores, and a few of her latest tales. Like a castle wall, the record contains some foundational songs that Fae performed very early in her career. Stone by stone, story after story, the journey continued. Mastered by Seattle legend, Chris Hanzsek and recorded by Ron Allen at Four Lumen Studio in Kirkland, Washington, Fae crossed the Atlantic 4 times during the recording process. The record and arrangements seemed to be seasoned by her travels. The echoes of castle winds mingled with the tunes from little birds in central Europe. From the majestic to the down trodden, Fae wove together the threads of her travels into a colourful tapestry of voice, guitar, and dreamy landscapes. Castle Walls is a fine example of a songwriter’s journey through mystery, history, love, and loss.
