ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Owl Country is the exciting collaboration between classically trained violinist Yvette Holzwarth and nationally acclaimed author and Americana songwriter Dan Imhoff. Since the two met at a fundraiser for Sonoma County family farmers in the summer of 2013 they have written a quiver of songs, attracted all star Northern California artists, and self-produced a debut album in a renovated historic building.

The project features 10 original songs and a live cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released.” Joining Holzworth and Imhoff are mandolin genius, David Grisman, Grammy Award-winning bluesman, Charlie Musselwhite, pedal steel wizard, Dave Zirbel, jazz bassist Chris Hamburger, and hip-hop and R & B percussionist, PC Muñoz—all from Northern California.

Recorded in a one-room school house built during the Great Earthquake of 1906, warm acoustics bring a distinct sound to the violin, guitar and duet vocals which drive Owl Country’s music.

Half of the songs are duets, layered with rich string arrangements and intertwining vocal harmonies. Others are rhythmically complex. David Grisman’s distinctive mandolin playing sparkles on the uptempo bluegrass tune “I Wanna Know You” and colors the darker ballads “Atonement” and “Lost and Found.”

Owl Country begins with the love song “Light Your Candle” that wraps around Imhoff’s catchy fingerstyle guitar melody and Holzwarth’s cascading violin lines. In between are ballads, gospel blues, and alternative country. It ends with Windcatcher, an old-timey piano waltz that shows off Holzwarth’s gorgeous vocal range and playful story telling.
