Black Hole Lace - Kemp & Eden (VINYL LP)
Six-year-old Eden Rice (the romantic) and four-year-old Kemp Muhl (the cynic) first met while playing with ducks by a lakeside, and grew up together in the heat of suburban Georgia. They painted side by side, exchanged talents, shared secrets and made up their own imaginary language. In their early teens Eden, a classically trained choral singer and Kemp, a self-taught guitar plucker, wrote dozens of songs. Then fate intervened, and they were separated... Eight years later, after a bit of exposure to the world and to proper guitar chords, they came together again to record their childhood songs.
All songs written by Kemp Muhl, except "Sparrow" (Simon & Garfunkel). With guests Chris Thile (Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek), Thomas Bartlett (Doveman) and Sean Lennon. Kemp has released two previous records with her band The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger.
