Edith Makes a Paperchain was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado and has
been named 'Best Folk Band' in Colorado Springs by the Independent
newspaper (2011 and 2012). Edith Makes a Paperchain was the winner of
the 2009 Pikes Peak Arts Council Award for Excellence in the Arts in the
Popular Music category and has been described as gypsy folk, indie
rock, power pop and haunted circus music. A whimsical, folie a six
mostly acoustic instruments that combine to create a sort of gypsy,
folk, pop sound. The music of Edith often inspires waltzing, laughter
and a sense of curiosity, mystery, and merriment.
“Beau and Arrow is produced by
the talented Bourgal twins (Conor and Ian) of the Changing Colors, who
are well-known for their grasp of the beautifully understated. The 11
tracks float like a dreamy mist across a rural, wooded landscape, like a
small town somewhere near the water, in the time when tracks still
carried trains, telephones needed wires, and the roads had no pavement.
The album is wrapped in a hazy, melancholy contentment that has been all
but lost in the modern world.
That's not to say it's in any way antiquated, or even that old-timey,
just that it conveys a timeless and comfortable quality. It's the
feeling of being tightly wrapped in a thick, hand-sewn quilt as the
music slowly surrounds you.”
