Artist Info: On Through the Night, modern indie folk duo March to May deliver on the promise hinted at on their critically-acclaimed debut EP, The Water’s Edge. Their debut full-length paints sweeping portraits of love, life, and the pull between darkness and light with a salt-sprayed palette of harp, piano, strings, and horns. Darren Guyaz and Beth Wesche together craft distinct, engaging soundscapes that mesmerize with rich vocal harmonies, enthralling storytelling and poignant melodic dynamism.
Setting out to craft their follow up to The Water’s Edge, Guyaz and Wesche roamed across their rugged home. From cliffs high above Puget Sound, to sailing a historic steamship, to tucked away cabins on remote islands, the songs on Through the Night are all deeply influenced by the Pacific Northwest’s natural environment. Rich and alive, yet perhaps a little dark around the edges, and with an introspective bent that add richness and complexity.
When the time came to record their debut full-length they turned to co-producers Martin Feveyear (Kings of Leon, Damien Jurado) and Jerry Streeter (Brandi Carlile, Elephant Revival) for guidance. Decamping to a sunny farmhouse on Vashon Island, a large converted barn at Bear Creek Studio, and Avast Studios in Seattle, March to May have crafted a record that captures the vast beauty of their adopted home. Through the Night enchants and inspires, reminding us that though the waters ahead may be rough, a steady hand and a joyful heart will guide you to a glorious new day.
