Forest Music & New Artwork

We call it Forest Music, some of these songs, because we feel connected to the very sound of that. Musical genres blend and leap and jump and share, we cannot adhere to one of we tried, yet we are always asked what type of music do we play? At one concert in 2019, we played a set list of our melodically softer and quieter songs, and a stranger in the audience approached us afterward and said “It sounds like Forest Music,” and we were all excited smiles.

If something as revered by us as a forest could produce something as revered by us as music, then to even capture a hint of that in the imagination fills us with humble glee.

We are currently recording “Ophelia’s Song, “”From the Blue Green Sea,” “Followcat,” and “Quiet Solitude. These are songs that tell some of those tales.

Female authors have always struggled to be taken objectively, for this reason and others far more oppressive in the past they have used pen names, often male. Still today many use pen names or initials in the hopes of being judged fairly. It is a funny thing, since reading is one of the best things that we can do to learn critical thinking, compassion, empathy and imagination. Why should marketing and sexism detract from precious books and thought?

Here is to the excellent authors mentioned, and those that could not fit in the song, and to books themselves, our dearest friends, the books!

Please enjoy this song and video, and let us know who your favorite authors are!

NPR “Desks of the 2020 Tiny Desk Contest” feature

Oh goodness! The Repressions are featured in the “best desks” video for the NPR contest! While the tour is not happening this year of course, this little bit of light is very welcome. It’s a very nice video, lots of creativity on display and a lovely way to showcase and support independent artists, on the NPR YouTube channel. And of course, our song and video with the now-famous desk can be found on our own YouTube channel.) #tinysurprise
