Our album Whisper was written during the pandemic, when times were (and still can be) very lonely and frightening. We wanted to create soothing, gentle, and quiet music that helped comfort those who listened to it. We discovered that within the intimate and serene music that was coming out was a deep emotional expression that was healing for us and we hope will be healing for our listeners as well.
Birgitte on the Steps is an expression of love. We watched the Danish series Borgen and were moved by a scene with Birgitte sitting on the steps in her home feeling the love for her family. Spending so much time with just the three of us (the third being our son, Miles) during this past year, we feel our bond stronger than ever.
