    Limited to 150 copies.Comes in a gatefold jacket. All the artwork is hand stamped by me with custom made stamps. The inner panels of the jacket contain 2 polaroids. The left panel photograph is of me playing and is the same on all 150 copies. The right panel photograph will be 1 of 5 taken by me on one of my hikes around the area. There are 5 different versions of the second photo. Which one you get will be chosen at random. Because of the hand stamped nature of these, please understand that there will be irregularities on each jacket but each copy will be your own. I put each of these together by hand over the course of several months.

  • 7" Test Press
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Only 5 test presses were made. These are the only black vinyl copies of the record. Each will come in a hand stamped jacket. Because there are 5 variations of the 2nd photograph on the jacket, each of these 5 test presses will be unique because they'll only be one test press that has that particular picture. 5 unique pictures, 5 test presses. I respectfully ask that test presses are limited to one per person.

about

A side of this band that no one ever gets to see is me sitting quietly on my porch, playing acoustic versions of my songs. That's such a huge part of my life and to what I do in this band. Also starting around 2018 I've played a few acoustic shows of different material here and there. So I decided to merge those two ideas and do a live acoustic ep. These songs were recorded live on my porch in one take. No editing or studio tricks, and just a bit of mastering, just enough to resolve issues with getting it onto vinyl. It's all there, the missed notes, the wind in the trees, my dogs bumping into the mic stands. All the things that make life beautiful. This is the closest I can get y'all to being there with me in that moment. I hope you find something worthwhile in it. -Paul R.

Track Name: Beyond the Dark River
Pale mountains rise in white autumn skies
Beyond the dark river and early snow
And the ages cut to stone
Like my sense of place, come spring it fades away
Like the fallen leaves and the August rains

Sometimes it feels so close, sometimes far away
A scream on the ridge, that old time way
And spring rains come and wash away the leaves
Seasons change but I stay the same

In the summer heat, in the fires of Beltane
the trains whistle through the holler and old oak trees
And the lay of the land, and the smell of the grass
This place holds to me, dear lord how it holds to me
Track Name: These Empty Fields
Where the wild storms grow
and the mists rise from the hills
And the sound of the wind silences them all
We all have ghosts and the horror of our hearts
I laid mine to rest in these empty fields
You found your way in the whispering pines
And what was left for me got buried in those trees
And I got buried in those trees
Like my momma and hers before
Like so many before
