Album Notes
Michigan has, for some time now, been a deep resource for songwriters and roots musicians. Two favorites, Seth Bernard and May Erlewine, well-known to audiences as single acts, have been performing and recording together for over ten years . Now they are playing folk festivals all over the country and concerts at venerable folk institutions such as Club Passim in Boston and the Ark in Ann Arbor. In 2007, Seth and May were featured on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion".

Already seasoned songwriters with six solo records each and three duo albums to their names, Seth and May draw from a deep well of American folk, country, blues and soul music. May plays guitar, piano and violin and is a songbird reminiscent of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seth has drawn comparisons to Woody Guthrie and Neil Young as a magnetic communicator of ideas and a shape shifting folk rocker. They harmonize their voices and instruments beautifully, believing music can bring people together and proving so at every performance. Like all the best folk musicians, they have the ability to get everyone's attention and still a room. With their five piece band they can just as easily electrify a crowd and ignite a dance floor.

Seth and May's common belief in music to strengthen communities and to be a part of positive change has led to collaborations with numerous schools, camps, farms and non-profit organizations. They partnered with best selling author and famed environmentalist Bill McKibben and contributed songs to the movement for Climate Change action. They have also fostered the creation of the Water Festival, a series of events in the Great Lakes region dedicated to music and education about preserving water quality and universal access.

Seth and May have had some special recordings up our sleeve for quite some time now and we are thrilled to announce that they are ready to share with you! We are releasing two new songs produced by Tyler Duncan! We have always loved sharing music with Tyler Duncan and have been fans of his from the early days as teenagers at Michigan music festivals to his work with millish and My Dear Disco/Ella Riot to his studio magic as a producer and sideman. After years of discussing a formal studio collaboration we finally booked a session to record two songs together. Trevor Hobbs from Breathe Owl Breathe was included and on October 31st, 2012 the four of us met in costume and created a new realm together, recording two songs that were very special to us: Seth’s “We Can Change (Our Own Minds)” and May’s “Siren Song”. There was a great deal of mutual respect, reverence and magic in the air that day that has carried through. After overdubs, mixing and mastering, the songs are now finished and ready to share. Big ups to Brad Kik from Island for designing the artwork.

The best way to find out what Seth and May are about is listen to their music, either at, the official headquarters of the collective they have helped to create, or better yet in person.
