Zoë's first album There'll Be A Time is a compilation of pages from her teenage songwriting journal. These songs speak yearningly of family, community, and the land, while humbly and earnestly confronting themes of mortality. Listen for the tender sounds of Nick Blechman's mandolin, Gregory Masaki Jenkins's smooth clarinet, Linnea Sablosky's masterful harmony arrangements in our angel choir with Camille Holmes & Robert Raymond. There'll Be A Time was made possible thanks to 125 Kickstarter backers who pledged a total of $6,194 in 2012. Produced by Blank Music. Co-produced by Adam Covington. Recorded in San Francisco at Hyde St. Studio C, with Scott McDowell. All tracks written by Zoë Blank. Photos: Charlie Homo, Eileen Z Li. Disc art by Todd Blank.
