March of 2020 was the last time The Repressions performed in front of a live (non virtual) audience. While they long for these shows again, they are grateful that that small evening was blessed with a long set and a lovely audience.
Moonlight Magic is a wonderful example of Forest Music, and a misty dream that we will make our forests anywhere, through music and art and love and hope.
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.
