An artist from Watchung, NJ, but a little bit nomadic these days, i have been playing guitar since age 11, bass since age 13, piano since age 14, ukulele since age 17, and have been singing since i could talk. I'm a sad girl just trying to show the world that it's ok to feel something. Won't stop til i connect all of our souls

Through a rising din of cello glissandi, hissing slide guitars, backwards tape, and analog noise a warm, rich voice, at once accessible in its darkness and stark in its honesty, picks up the story in mid conversation-

“I am expected to run things around this place.
Take it all in, make it better, never show your face.
Where do I go with that?”

Sorores, the new 90-minute double album from Native Harrow begins here, with a 12-minute suite covering the collapse of a close loved one on the New York City subway and an exploration of a nostalgia for a human connection that may never have existed. The debut LP Ghost (2015) established a soundworld somewhere between British Folk Rock and Laurel Canyon Folk. This 17 track followup blows things wide open to make way for darker avant-garde folk, art rock edginess, sitar solos, west coast jazz, middle eastern rhythms, and desert psychedelia.

“The songs of Sorores reflect changes of heart, growth of soul, struggles in my hunt to find life’s magic, and my exploration of the vast world of sounds. This Latin world for ‘sisters’ has resounded in and from me throughout the writing and recording process and, I fell, captures the essence of this album.”

The two members of Native Harrow, vocalist/guitarist Devin Tuel and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Harms, surround themselves on stage with a collection of open-tuned acoustic guitars, pawn-shop electrics, basses, acoustic strings, and a few drums and keyboards. moving deliberately and inquisitively through the sonic worlds inhabited by the material. The music of Ghost and Sorores have been worked through on stages and in rooms throughout North America on the back-to-back Sorores Tour and World Gets Quiet Tour throughout 2017. The two-piece will begin 2018 with the 100+ show New Year Eyes Tour.
