David Huckfelt with Savannah Smith

In the fall of 2017, David Huckfelt left behind the familiar—the comfort of his home in Minneapolis; the camaraderie of his critically acclaimed band, The Pines; the luxuries of heat, hot water, and electricity—and relocated to Isle Royale, America’s most remote and least visited national park in mighty Lake Superior. Six hours by boat off the Michigan coast, Isle Royale is the largest island in the world’s largest freshwater lake, an isolated stretch of wilderness seemingly forgotten by the 20th century (to say nothing of the 21st). There, as an Artist In Residence selected by the National Park Service, Huckfelt spent ten hours a day for two straight weeks writing in solitude, channeling the mysterious and lonesome island’s spirits into his stunning debut solo album, ‘Stranger Angels.’

Savannah Smith’s debut full length album “LEO” is a dark and lush tribute to loss and the ripples it creates. Tucked away in a house built by her great-grandfather Leo, Smith leaned heavily on the solitude of an empty house to hone in a new sound far from her first ukulele laden EP, Leaving Eau Claire. Recorded and produced by Minneapolis’ Brett Bullion, the two created a stormy soundscape for Smith’s earnest words and vocals. The coming together of simple, swelling instrumentation and complex rhythms and samples make an evocative home for Smith’s songs
