ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cross genre music spanning Country, Blues, Folk Rock, Rock and Folk: six musicians, sixteen instruments and three part harmony vocals. Sometimes its the kind of acoustic stuff you'd find playing at a county fair in Missouri, sometimes it's like a loud electric gig in LA, sometimes it's the kind of music you find on your car radio as you drive through the backroads of Mississippi. It's the music you rob banks to...

Most of our songs are narrative, deriving from real experiences of life in America from the 1850s to the current day. Love, lust, heartache, farming, alcohol, betrayal, cars, guns and the yearning to leave your old life behind, take the pickup on the highway and see where you end up. Stitches unpicked from life's tapestry

'Daddy's Gone' comes from a conversation overheard in a diner in Macon, Georgia - just about the saddest thing we've ever heard - still brings tears to our eyes. 'Gallows Tree' comes from a Nevada newspaper crime report from the early 1860s, written, we think, by the young Mark Twain.
'Riding Shotgun' is about the terrible things that happened to farmers following the financial crises of the 80s and 90s - the kind of traumas Neil Young founded Farm Aid to relieve. Along with 'Cry Vengeance' it's about tyring to heal those wounds by creating new ones.
'Valley of Bones' is our attempt to redress the balance after someone said there was always pain in our songs (well we do have a couple of excellent blues musicians onboard) and write a happy song. It expresses what we believe: only other humans can make us truly happy.
'Trail of Broken' hearts a portrait of someone Dani knows (but won't say who) - combined our experience of some dreadful motels in California and Arizona.
'Take Me Home' was written after Dani fell in love with the 'True Blood' title credits. It's only at the end you realise it's written from a Bayou vampire's point of view. And 'Swamp', also set in the Everglades, is about disentangling yourself from a relationship that feels so good and does you so much bad....

With three female vocalists, a solid blues rhythm section and load of folky/country grooves the sound of this album is constantly upbeat, even when the lyrics are sad. We're a happy bunch, honestly...

The Homing encompases three generations of artists from the UK, Canada, Greece and New Zealand who love and are influenced by a wide range of international music but manage to weave them together into something unique. Like the perfect burger, fresh off the barbecue of life, served with an ice cold Bud.

During the recording of this album one of our early musical influences, Merrell Noden, died in Princeton, aged 59. We dedicate this album to his memory.
