Eleven original songs on Tarantula Arms - from stark "Wyoming" to lush "Ashes to Wildflowers" - concern growth, regeneration, and perseverance. Wisconsin-raised songwriter/guitarist and vintage Americana vocalist Rawling honed her song writing skill during many summers working atop a fire tower in the Mt. Hood wilderness. Parks plays violin, viola, mandolin and ukulele. He sings harmony, but his "voice" is heard in the form of his distinctive string-playing, which has a dusty, mournful quality revealing classical, mountain, and bluegrass influences.
•"Where do bands like this come from and why do they take so long to get here? Breaking down perimeters of Folk, Americana, Roots etc., this duo's sound is like nothing else." - Midwest Record
