The Lost Ark Studio presents "We Sleep On The Porch" by The Tree Ring - the latest single from the studio's Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 02. A beautiful song from a special evening at the studio, "We Sleep On The Porch" will transport you to a to a simpler time, a beautiful place...
The Tree Ring is the chamber-inspired project from San Diego folk artist Joel P West. In February 2011, the band released their debut record, "Generous Shadows", which they wrote and recorded together in Idyllwild, California. The marriage of classically-influenced string arrangements with glockenspiel, acoustic guitar, and a fragile pump organ aims to create a delicate space to host careful lyrics, which are most often odes to the natural world. Their work has been described as "warm, richly textured, and pastoral" and "music you can curl up into." The Tree Ring is currently wrapping up tracking for their second album, available later this year.
