Barry Childs-Helton
'The Summers Behind You' cover

"The Summers Behind You" is Barry Childs-Helton's first solo album. Its 17 tracks of Barry's original "English-major folk-rock with aerospace motifs" will take you to a world of analog-era technology, science fiction as metaphor, busted college romances, literary allusion, and wry humor. Barry delivers a versatile guitar style on ten different instruments to underpin his smooth vocals. Full printed lyrics in a multi-page booklet provide "a read for your ears", and the Dragon Scale Studios graphic design recalls vintage postcards of a midway beyond summer. Travel there with us!

Barry is a consummate musician known for his work in the Black Book Band and most recently in Wild Mercy. He is an active performer, playing both as part of Wild Mercy and on his own. In 2003, he was inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame along with his wife Sally. He is also the recipient of numerous Pegasus Awards in categories such as Best Performer and Best Space Song.

Katt McConnell
'[untitled]' cover

"[untitled]" is the newest effort from twisted folk musician Katt McConnell. Described by Katt as, "a journey through the Self", this album features Katt's melodious voice paired with her powerful songwriting, Riley McConnell's captivating guitar work, and the work of several other talented artists. The arrangements are as rich and varied as the subject matter. Katt says, "These songs tell the story of where I've been, where I am, and where I'm going".

'Faces in the Fog' cover

"Faces in the Fog" is a revisit with some old friends--namely the songs from Katt McConnell's initial release, "Cold September Ground"--completely re-recorded, re-mixed, and re-mastered. Several of the songs have even been re-arranged, and now feature new instrumentation performed by talented musicians such as Jen Midkiff, Cernowain Greenman, and Ricardo Laranja. This new release also includes rich vocal harmonies, arranged by Sarah Thrasher and Jen Midkiff.

The reason that this re-release is titled "Faces in the Fog" is because of an additional six-track EP added to the end of the original "Cold September Ground" track list. These all-new songs carry on the original creepy, twisted, fanciful spirit of "Cold September Ground", which, with the release of this new album, will be going out of print.
