"Intense, beautiful, and cathartic." —Kevin Cole, KEXP
In 2015, I fell into severe depression, and embarked on what became a four-year journey to make a full recovery and discover my purpose on Earth. The journey took me overseas and across thousands of miles of wilderness on foot. It took me to healing work and through the spirit world.
In 2019, while hiking 120 miles across Montana, I had a vision of an ancestor and an indigenous tribe that told me that I must return to Seattle for music. This experience abruptly ended my multi-year journey: I dropped all my previous plans, and Bryan and I scheduled our first rehearsal. Two weeks later, I drove over the Cascades, pulled into Seattle, and walked into our first practice. This was the beginning of Midnight Daughter.
In the year since then, we have been selected for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest Top Shelf, played live on KISW 99.9, and been featured on KEXP’s Weekly Mix Podcast. We have also cried on Bryan’s shoulder (I did), played shows, and gone birdwatching to see disgruntled bald eagles as they shook Seattle’s rain off their feathers.
Through our music, we evoke the experience of emotion as it shifts and flows in the body —the feelings, the sensations, the visions, the energy. How can I capture emotion in its purest form? This I seek to capture in my songwriting. Then Bryan gets all genius on this shit and throws down some unconventional harmonies, textures, and rhythms. Or he just shreds. Together, our sound is somewhere between The Civil Wars and Tool, an alt-acoustic duo like you’ve never heard before.
