The Cascadian region of the Pacific Northwest is a special place in America, a fact known well by Blake Cowan, who goes by the moniker of Wickerbird. Upon first listen, you’ll be transported back to the first time you listened to Bon Iver – sorrow washing over you like a waterfall until all is wiped clean and only serenity remains. Cowan secluded himself in a trailer in Washington’s Mount Rainier for his upcoming release, The Leaf Maker, finding inspiration in the forest and even capturing some of nature’s magic for good measure.
Chill out to “Bugbear” below:
The Leaf Maker will be available September 18.
