“Fieldnotes From a Caravan” started as a demo. The vocals and acoustic guitar were cut without a metrenome - wih no intention of addig any other layers. With Shanna’s travels abroud, it took 5 years to complete the abum. Little by little additional voices were added fom local musicians. Track 2, Appalachia to the Himalayas, is a good example of the many layers that were added.

The guys in Coward tracked drums, guitar, bass and vocals at home on their 4-track tape recorder. They brought over the tracks to the studio to add a few overdubs and have it mixed and mastered. Notice that the rawness of the original recording was still kept on the overdubs that were recorded digitally.
Coward will be out on tour with GUITAR WOLF for the Fall’13/Winter’14 US Tour
