Wayfinders
By Holcombe Waller

"Like Rufus Wainwright and Antony before him, Holcombe Waller has a gorgeously androgynous voice, both as a singer and songwriter—one that cuts through ordinary and extraordinary situations with delicacy and emotional precision."
—NPR

From tidal patterns and ancient ocean voyages, to errand-running and GPS devices, navigation past and present propels this song cycle by Portland-based musician and composer Holcombe Waller[1]. Backed by a chamber ensemble, Waller performs these lushly orchestrated musings on physical and spiritual wayfinding—combined with improvised shifts in light, sound, and video—resulting in a mesmerizing meditation on the historical importance of finding, and maintaining, one’s bearings.
