‘Home’ is an album which spans more than 2,000 kilometres, two families and a lifetime of experiences.
Darren Harper and Jared Smyth's collaborative effort examines the spaces they have shaped as husbands, fathers and community members in the two very different towns of Tallahassee, Florida and Nederland, Colorado.
Although the two men have never met, they have produced an album that explores the most intimate corners of their lives.
Through the sounds of tinkling streams, children drumming, warm guitars and crunching ice, the pair have crafted an intensely personal album, which invites us into the parts of the world they have made their own.
This is an album full of warmth, subtlety and power that explores what it means to call somewhere 'home'.
''It’s one of the year’s warmest and most inviting albums, playful and loving all at once, as inviting as a glass of lemonade served to guests on a wooden porch,'' -- A Closer Listen.
''The constituent parts all work together to build these most delightful walls-of-sound… sounds that have the potential to envelope you and draw you towards them in a truly intimate manner,'' The Future Elements.
