Through Darkness, We See is the first album from this couple's new music project Owl & Vulture. It showcases a collection of original songs written by Riley and Natasha from summer 2015 through spring 2016 on Vancouver Island. Inspired by troubling times, love, life, death, mental illness, friends and the magic found in these deep green woods off the west coast of BC.
Recorded by Reverend Black Claw at Hora Morior Studios, Vancouver BC during one hell of a hot weekend in June 2016. Sweating, cussing, eating, drinking and turning the fan on and off for recording. Over the course of two days we finished everything just in time to catch the last ferry home before sunset. The cool salty air never felt so good as we drove off the boat homeward bound.
An extra shout out to our best friend June, for her patience, comic relief, kisses, snuggles and tale wags... without her we would be lost. She inspires us daily more than she'll ever know. We love you June xo
