Emily Picha's third album is a soaring westward journey with a vibrant cast of characters including swarthy sailors, pilgrims from faraway lands, and Los Angeles personified. In these 10 exquisite tracks, Emily Picha's rich and clear vocals make their home among the passing Badlands, lonely rest stops, and mountain meadows of the west. The album has been described as 'infectious bathtub folk' and 'geo-folk' (playing off of Emily's penchant for geographic references). Her guest instrumentation includes a haunting cello played by Brenna Sahatjian, a singing fluegelhorn played by Max Ribner, and the beautiful drumming of Nicholas Callaway. From '16 Deadbolts,' an anthem to pilgrims in foreign lands, to 'The Sandy River,' an song for the gushing rivers of our homelands, each song moves seamlessly into the next.
