Dana Falconberry stopped by the KDHX studio for a three-song set crisp with Americana breeze and stories of exploration.

Falconberry's latest songs were inspired by imagined landscapes Falconberry placed her character inside. The consummate storyteller, Falconberry blended the human condition with bucolic, nature-laden scenery to create songs that echo the pillars of transcendentalism.

"Possum Song" is splintered by a whistle-solo from a weary traveler. The foot soldier hears his or her name in the wind as they travel to their newest destination among a footpath guarded by trees. Solo, but never lonely when surrounded by nature and the stars at night, they wander forward with nature's company.

"Crooked River" off "Leelanau" narrates the movement of a small river along the traveler's path. Off-kilter hockets from Falconberry and her keyboardist and banjo player accompany the river's journey. Their vocal pops chart the path of the river as its banks jet to and fro in a jagged, urgent way.

On "Dolomite" the traveler loses consciousness of her tangible being and becomes one with her surroundings. She is lifted into the wind then follows a dreamscape where she is back in the arms of her lover. In order to get to what she desires, the traveler must carry on with nature as her guide.
