Wake Up Autumn Grand Rapids, Michigan

We are Josh Eid-Ries and Rachel Varley, native born Michigan kids who pull inspiration from the unpredictable landscape of our home state.
In the summer of 2012 we joined forces to create a new sound. Our whimsical,memory driven lyrics combined with raw vocal harmonies complements our unlikely array of instruments. Part Folk, part Americana roots, part whatever the hell you'd call it. Here we are.

Track Name: Big Ol' Lake
I've spent every Michigan summer,
swingin', playin' in that wood.
Now the world, oh it's tellin' me,
Grow up kid you know you should.
Grow up kid now be good.

But there's a, big ol' lake on every side.
I just wanna swim so far and wide in that,
big ol' lake on every side. Big ol' lake on every side.

World keeps spinnin' like it has all these years.
Same old problems, same old fears.
Dreams are harder then they used to be.
But I still lace up my shoes like I should,
I keep movin' keep tryin' to do good.

Big ol' lake on every side.
I just wanna swim so far and wide in that,
big ol' lake on every side.

Life it happens in rhythm with your breath.
You're where you are, don't guilt yourself to death.
Find your freedom, chase in in the ground.
You can find joy in those things your passin' by.
Like the Grand River, the trees, sun and sky, and that--

Big ol' lake on every side.
I just wanna swim so far and wide in that,
big ol' lake on every side.
Big ol' lake on every side.
Track Name: Howl
The cold creeps in my window sill,
Slippery as a snake.
The naked trees they shiver,
I shake with my mistake, aches.

The sun never rises, sun never falls
The grey sky disguises, anything at all.

Howl, Howl, Howl. (oohh)

Lay down little maple,
dead on the hill.
Spirits are walkin',
Rest and be still.

The moon pulls the lake tide
And pushes it out of the land.
A world swims below us,
Grind me in the sand.

Howl, Howl, Howl. (oohh)

The wolf pack calls from the mountain,
waitin' for his brother.
But he's cold as the winter.
Next spring may bring another.

Howl, Howl, Howl. (oohh)
Track Name: Little Blossom
Little blossom, little sun
Little heart, what have you done?
Have you done? Have you done?
Have you done, what have you done?

Pick your poison, pick it young.
Count the petals, beat your drum.
Beat your drum and then he comes,
Then he comes when you beat your drum.

(Oh, oh oh, oohhh)

Your lover's waitin' on the hill,
Pick your blossom, take your fill.
Take your fill and take your pill
Tae your fill and take your pill.

He thought he said, she thought she said,
Cloudy image in your head
In your head, in your heard
He thought he said, she thought she said.

(Oh, oh oh, ooohhh)

Little blossom when your young
Fades away when the day is done.
Day is done, day is done,
it fades away when you are young.

I hear your catchin' other's eyes
But I still wake and I still rise,
I still rise, I still rise, though your catchin'
other's eyes.

(Oh, oh oh, ooohhh)

Little blossom, little sun
Little heart what have you done?
Have you done? Have you done?
Have you done, what have you done?
Track Name: Robin's Song
Listen to the Robin's song callin' all the day.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh. The babe is flown away.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh. Please come back my child;
I raise my voice, spread my wings far into the wild.

Oh, oh, oh oh oh. Please come back to me.
I'm stronger now, I crave the world.
Let me go be free.

Robin's boy is just a babe,
Brave as any man.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh
He flew across the land.

He came to know the joys of earth,
Came to know the sea.
Exotic fruits and animals,
and mountains snowy trees.

But oh, oh, oh oh oh.
Oh oh! cried the bird.
He came to know the world of man
Of things he'd never heard.
Things he'd never heard.

Oh, oh, oh oh oh.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh.
Mountains blown up to the sky,
Forests cleared away.
Gone in just a day.
Gone in just a day.

Where have you flown?
Please come back home.
Your not yet grown.
Where have you flown? (hide away)
Please come back home. (hide away, hide away)
Hide away (hide away, hide away, hide away, hide away)
Hide away, hide away, hide away, hide away.

Oh, ooh ohhh. Ohhh. Oh oh oh oh.

Listen to the Robin's song,callin all he morn.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh.
The Robin's home is gone.
Oh, oh, oh oh oh.
Deep into the ground.
Listen to the Robin's song.
Single, hollow sound.
Track Name: Yes I've Heard
Yes I've heard, once before.
That the wind that howls in the night.
Loves to follow, your dark footsteps
In the darkest part of your dreams.

One cold evening,I was walkin'
After midnight and was swallowed by the storm
It walked into every part of my brain
And since then i've never ever felt the same.

Yes I've heard, once before.
That the wind that howls in the night.
Loves to follow, your dark footsteps
In the darkest part of your dreams.

Yes I've heard, you've been howlin'
with that storm late into the night.
I can see you from my window
and I wonder if you're gonna put up a fight

Yes I've heard, once before.
That the wind that howls in the night.
Loves to follow, your dark footsteps
In the darkest part of your dreams.

Now i've seen you, in the day time
That storm it's ragin' in your eyes
And I wonder if they've taken you
Or if you've taken to the night.

Yes I've heard, once before.
That the wind that howls in the night.
Loves to follow, your dark footsteps
In the darkest part of your dreams.

If I could you know I would,
rewind the time
Go searchin' for
the lost part of my mind.

If I would you know I'd find
All my thoughts collide
Cause I've been swallowed by
The storm that's become mine.

Oh, yes I've heard, once before.
That the wind that howls in the night.
Loves to follow, your dark footsteps
In the darkest part of your dreams.
