The Unending Alteration of the Human Heart

Gabrielle Louise

In cart Not available Out of stock

For the most part, the songs on this record were born in a post-breakup solitude. Living in rural Paonia, Colorado's wine and fruit country, Louise spent a great amount of time in the utter quiet while writing this record, keeping only her creativity as company. Chopping wood, hauling water, and listening to nothing but the falling snow, she looked loneliness square in the face and demanded her own company be enough.

Then, released March 2020, the same week as stay at home orders on account of COVID 19, this collection of songs and thematic content took on a second life of significance for Louise and her listeners, heard in the context of social distancing and the pandemic.

The Bird in My Chest

Gabrielle Louise

In cart Not available Out of stock

Released November 8, 2013

Designed by Chris Garre, a physical copy of "The Bird in my Chest" comes in an original, handmade case that holds both a book of lyrics, poems, and short stories, as well as the record itself, which features the beautiful black and white photography of Kristen Hatgi-Sink and Mark Sink.

"The Bird in My Chest" is an intimate, self-exposing love record. The short stories and poems that accompany it were written at the same time as the music, many of which correlate to the content of the songs or provide deeper insight into life on the road as a traveling troubadour.
