about

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

Trades: We are open to exchanging music (digital / physical) for other artists' music or handmade items. To participate in a trade please send us a private message. We value and appreciate those who can financially support our creative journey but also want to make our album accessible to anyone looking to own it regardless of cost barrier. If for some reason you are completely unable to pay or trade, but you love the album, send us a message.

Track Name: Walk With Me
Walk With Me

Feel the magic in the trees
Feel the magic in the bones
In the feathers and the leaves
In the waters and the stones

Ooh walk with me

I see your messengers
They've shown themselves to me
The bears, raccoons and birds
And the creatures of the seas

Ooh walk with me

I hear the song of the owl as she's calling out to me
The tears are welling in my eyes, now I can hardly see
I see the moon shining bright as she rises through the trees
I see the beauty all around me as it brings me to my knees

Ooh walk with me
Track Name: Thinkin' of You
Thinkin’ Of You

Well we all fall on hard times
that simple fact of life is true
But a hard time for me
might not be a hard time for you

So when dark clouds roll in, when you’re down and blue
Just think of me my friends, know that i’ll be thinkin’ of ... I’ll be thinkin’ of you

Well we all have loves we’ve lost
We know that lovin’ comes with that cost
We all have dreams we dream
But this big ol’ world ain’t always what it seems

So when dark clouds roll in, when you’re down and blue
Just think of me my friends, know that i’ll be thinkin’ of ... I’ll be thinkin’ of you

Like sunshine in the pouring rain
Thinkin’ about you it helps to keep those clouds at bay
Like birds singin’ in the trees
Hearing your voice puts me at ease

So when dark clouds roll in, when you’re down and blue
Just think of me my friends, know that i’ll be thinkin’ of ... I’ll be thinkin’ of you

So when dark clouds roll in, when you’re down and blue
Just think of me my friends, know that i’ll be thinkin’ of ... I’ll be thinkin’ of you
Track Name: Dying Ground
Dying Ground

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Lay me on a pyre
Where the forest meets the sea
Set the raft on fire
As the tide takes hold of me

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Carry me to the woods
Lay me down under a tree
Leave me for the wolves
Let them devour me

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Burn me on a cliff
'Til my body is no more
Toss my ashes to the wind
With the vultures I will soar

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me
Track Name: Ol' Rough Seas
Ol’ Rough Seas

The sea it meets the sky, the fog it meets the sand
Im drowning in this current, won't you please give me your hand
These tears are rolling out, as the tide is rolling in
The sun is slowly setting, thoughts are blowing in the wind
blowing in the wind, blowing in the wind

Breeze is picking up, storms a brewin’ out there tonight
Your standing as my lifeline, you’re putting up quite the fight
The moonlight upon your face dear as I’m chilled right through my bones
The current's getting stronger but you’ve got a mighty hold
Got a mighty hold, got a mighty hold

Well the stars are shining bright, and the birds have gone to sleep
Without you my love, I’ve never felt complete
I cannot move a muscle, I need your warm embrace
Before these old rough seas encompass me without a trace
Without a trace, without a trace

Waves are crashing off the rocks, rain is pouring from the sky
Fogs rolled in so deep tonight I can barely see your eyes
You’ve pulled me from the current and we’re both on solid ground
If it weren’t for you my darlin’ well I surely would have drowned
Surely would have drowned, surely would have drowned
surely would have drowned
Track Name: Five Years Down
Five Years Down

I hear that long and lonesome road calling me
I hear that long and lonesome road calling me
I'm here with you my love, there's no place I'd rather be
Yet I hear that lonesome road calling me

All the trials and all the troubles
Five years down that dusty road
Never dreamed where it would take us
As it led us to our home

Ladada

The way ahead is dark and hard to see
The way ahead is dark and hard to see
But we walk together, our footsteps soft and free
Although the way ahead is dark and hard to see

All the trials and all the troubles
Five years down that dusty road
Never dreamed where it would take us
As it led us to our home

Ladada

The weight of the world may bring us to our knees
The weight of the world may bring us to our knees
We must keep our heads held high. keep walking and believe
Although the weight of the world may bring us to our knees

Ladada

All the trials and all the troubles
Five years down that dusty road
Never dreamed where it would take us
As it led us to our home

Ladada

All the trials and all the troubles
Five years down that dusty road
Never dreamed where it would take us
As it led us to our home
Track Name: Little Less Insane
Little Less Insane

You can sail across great oceans, in hopes to find me one day
You can soar across those blue skies, taking rest amongst those trees

But I am right here my sweet darlin’, you’ve gotta look inside yourself
For it is lonely standing near you, like dusty books upon a shelf

You can travel that dusty back road, checking every ditch along the way
You can hop on that passing box car, let rusty rails soothe away your day

You can climb the highest mountain pearing down to valleys deep beneath
You can dive the darkest seas my life, in no hopes of ever finding me

Cuz I am right here my sweet darlin’, you’ve gotta look inside yourself
For it is lonely standing near you, like dusty books upon a shelf

We all have darkness we try to run from
sometimes the booze and drugs don’t ease the pain
But if we slow down,
take a deep breath,
we may just feel a little less insane
A little less insane
ooooooooooooooh
We may just feel a little less insane
Less insane ooooooooooooooooh
We may just feel a little less insane
Little less insane
