Dana Falconberry :: From The Forest Came The Fire

“What good that mounting sky for the grounded such as I?”  Texas-based singer/songwriter Dana Falconberry sings on “Dolomite,” from From the Forest Came the Fire,  her new LP with her band, Medicine Bow.

The album is filled with this kind of query, about nature, Falconberry’s relationship to it, and her persistent awe in the face of its overwhelming state.

On the record, Falconberry sometimes recalls the haunted tone of Sufjan Stevens’ Seven Swans or the ornate complexities of become a member or log in.
