lyrics

Violet Fire

By hills and waters, farms and solitudes,
lonely forest brooks buried in the far violet hills.
Through fielded valleys that run between deep woods,
Murmurous and cool; through hallowed slopes of pine,

Where the long daylight dreams, unpierced, unstirred

To wander by the day, To lie among deep rocks
By the old oak tree tangled with wild vines,
Where wings of birds Spread thick as stars,
Through summer airs and summer lands,
Where the long daylight dreams, unpierced, unstirred

To watch, as through a mist of light and dreams,
And hear upon the wind, now loud,
now low
The murmur of cool streams,
With a smile as golden as the dawn,
tipped with violet fire
--
Lyrics based on a poem by Archibald Lampman (1861-1899)

October Gold Montréal, Québec

October Gold, an alt-folk duo based out of Montreal, is the latest collaboration of singer/songwriter Kit Soden and his partner in music (and life), violinist Aliza Thibodeau. This marriage of Soden's folksy roots and Thibodeau's classical sensibilities has created a unique sound described as "painting your imagination with song."

October Gold recently released their sophomore album in July 2013.
