50% of proceeds will go to the Sweet Relief Covid19 Artist Fund.

Our new single, Quarantine Daydream, was written by Austin early in the Covid19 outbreak and recorded and engineered by members of The Way Down Wanderers, at home. With this purchase you'll receive a limited edition frameable print, signed (in the print) by Toronto artist, Jazzberry Blue. NOTE: You'll be able to download the single immediately upon purchase.

50% of proceeds will go to the Sweet Relief Covid19 Artist Fund. This fund pays the bills of artists directly, who are struggling to keep their band solvent during this difficult time. Many of the acts we've toured with are having trouble making ends meet. We aren't the only ones. We hope this effort will help others just like us.

NOTE: Because funds are tight, we are printing these posters on-demand, upon purchase. Expect to receive your print within 3 weeks of purchase.

LYRICS

I woke up in the garden

I was ignoring the signs

everything was dying

there aint no denying the times

locked in

I woke up from a quarantine daydream

I cling to ink, ash, and caffeine

coffee cup stains to separate days

I'm doubting my escape

locked in

It's okay to be startled darling

we fell asleep when the house was haunted

I've got my heart places in your crawlspace

for hard days on the horizon

I woke up you were six feet apart from me

I wish the distance was hardly a part of me

honestly not a thing will dissipate

if you're doubting what it takes

locked in

I woke in a quarantine daydream

I cling to ink, grass, and tangerine

too many dirty plates to separate days

don't doubt it, don't escape

stay locked in

It's okay to be startled darling

we fell asleep when the house was haunted

I've got my heart places in your crawlspace

for hard days on the horizon

Recorded at Sonic Ranch in Texas, produced by The Avett Brothers' Mike Marsh, engineered by Grammy Award winning Jerry Ordonez and mixed by multiple-Grammy winner Neil Cappellino, the album features appearances by Michael Duchette and Old Crow Medicine Show's Critter Fuqua. The collection contains 12 vibrant songs ranging from ballads with a surprise twist —"The Way I Love You"— to driving bluegrass reels —"Dead Birds"— and folk rock stories of the road —"Blacktop Highway." The band quickly hits its stride in the rollicking blend of fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, and drum, creating folky-bluegrass blends reminiscent of Nickel Creek or Old Crow Medicine Show.

Track Listing: 1. Dead Birds 2. Sweet Morning Vision 3. New Day Dawning 4. Heading North 5. Circles 6. Hollow Man  7. Wildfire 8. Changing 9. Blacktop Highway 10. Silver Days 11. The Way I Love You Now 12. Midnight Flowers
