A period of change, transition, and growth. Dawn//Dust is the culmination of my creativity from 2016. As the year ends, I reflect on how each track represents a stage in my identity, from angst and worry, to acceptance and enlightenment. Dawn//Dust combines my love for oldtime, folkpunk, and a new-found appreciation for doom.
Huge thanks to all of those involved in this project. In these trying times, where marginalized people everywhere are being threatened, it is especially important for communities to come together. Thanks to:
Moony Marrow, for recording, mixing, mastering, and pushing me creatively. I've been such a huge fan of your music since the first Blues House show in SE Portland. Always an inspiration, always a friend
Al Danger, for giving me the confidence and support to complete this project. I met you at a time of my life when so much was in flux, and in you I found grounding. To forever being queer, playing music, and every-day Bons. Love you lil bird
Xander, for creating the absolutely stunning album art. Your style inspired me from the moment I saw you post your sketches.
Danielle, for crafting the gorgeous Mouse and Banjo text banner. You have such a delicate hand, and you are so beautiful
Emily, for showing me how to work a printing press, and having the patience to hash out some rough feelings.
Izzy, for being my Canadian muse, and helping me craft my identity with your beautiful inky fingers.
Piper, for pushing me to explore gender in ways I never thought possible, and for giving me grounding safety and support when I needed it the most
Bug, for giving me a place to call home in Vancouver, and for always being an excellent human. I look up to you more than you'll ever know.
