Moody Little Sister's - 'Ocean Rock & Sand' from 'Wild Places'

Wild Places, led them to question who they were as people, what they were doing artistically, and how they were going about booking shows and setting up tours, having traditionally played over 100 shows a year since their inception three years ago.

We are told:

Portland, Oregon-based folk-soul duo - Naomi Hooley and Rob Stroup - are celebrating the release of their debut full-length, Wild Places
 
On Wild Places, Moody Little Sister creates a soundtrack for anyone on a journey to be more authentically themselves, a journey the duo took themselves before arriving at the finished album.
 
Originally starting a record that was eventually scrapped - and spending more than a year on that record - a violent crowd at a small town bar abruptly ended one of their performances, forcing the duo to walk out, and reconsider the path that they - and most bands - traditionally follow.  This also led them to rethink the record they had been working on.
 
 
This soul-searching journey, documented on Wild Places, led them to question who they were as people, what they were doing artistically, and how they were going about booking shows and setting up tours, having traditionally played over 100 shows a year since their inception three years ago.
 
Scrapping everything and rebuilding from scratch, they decided they wanted to go in a more organic musical direction, and wanted their fans to experience the music more organically as well.  This led them to redefine the band and music; the duo began crafting a new record with honesty and intention, while also brainstorming nontraditional and fresh  ways of performing the music to their fan base.
