ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ten songs, each inspired by a book. Plus an extra one, just for fun.

Friction Farm spent much of 2012 traveling. For Aidan and Christine that meant a lot of reading. They decided to turn it into a project, discussing the book, seeing where the story would take them, and writing a song. It was a fun & frustrating, invigorating & exhausting, but always interesting.

They were inspired by true tales The Voyage of the Beagle and fictional works The Cellist of Sarajevo, a gift from a friend Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and a recommendation from a stranger The Glass Castle. Occasionally real life filtered in and begged us to re-read books Reading Lolita in Tehran and a Walk in the Woods.

Mark Dann, Neale Eckstein and Tom Prasada-Rao produced, recorded and played. There are some fantastic guest musicians on the CD; Pat Wictor, Deni Bonet, Tim Burlingame.

Friction Farm’s previous album, Every Mile Is A Memory, earned the duo a spot as Kerrville New Folk Finalists and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists in 2011. They continue to combine storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life, local heroes and quirky observations. From ballads to anthems each song is filled with harmony and hope.
