E&L SOUNDTRACK RECORDED BY SLEEPY TURTLES
Sleepy Turtles is a band threaded in the old tradition of folk - humans sharing the human condition. Their songs creak like new use of an old church pew, drawing joy in wandering harmonies. Song that is story, spun by hands covered in earth. The genesis of Sleepy Turtles is traced to vocalist/guitarist Dylan Higgins’ debut novel, Awakening, Book One of The Emblem & The Lantern, a series-tale vitalized by nighttime stories to his children. The book uses the tried and true analogy of light piercing the darkness. A musical accompaniment was designed to fit between the pages of the journey, bringing Tim Friesen, Will Parker, Marcus Trail, Mike Vanklaveren, and Higgins together to create songs simplistic in frame but broad in context. Their efforts have been featured in Alternative Press and Georgia Music Magazine.
The Novel Soundtrack is available to stream and download for free on Soundcloud.
