“Sweet, harmony-rich indie folk music from the moody hills of the Pacific Northwest. Fused with lofty strings and hauntingly lush vocals, Jenn Rawling and Basho Parks’ duo project evokes comparisons to Fairport Convention, Rachel’s, Beth Gibbons and Frazey Ford.” – Exystence
Jenn Rawling joins multi-instrumentalist Basho Parks in a partnership of formidable musical talent and palpable sympathetic intuition.
Jennifer Marie Rawling is a tree-sitting, fire-watching, pottery-making songstress born in Wisconsin and residing in Oregon. She is a roving apothecary, gardener, seamstress, chef, bicyclist, salamander-loving painter extraordinaire living with partner and bandmate Basho Parks in Portland.
Born to hippie idealists in an adobe hut seven miles shy of Colorado’s Mt. Blanca, Basho Watson Parks comes to us from radical origins. From symphonies to punk bands, bluegrass barn storms to roma-gypsy trios, organic electronica chamber music to classic country, his twenty-six years of string-playing experience span a huge swath of musical genres. Basho plays the violin, viola, mandolin, ukulele, and guitar, & sings.
