The Huntress & Holder of Hands at the Stone Church w/ Loone
youre a huntress and a healer and a holder of hands and your heart is the Avalon that I seek for my end.
David Lamb, 1977-2014
MorganEve Swain is The Huntress and Holder of Hands. A multi-instrumental string player, vocalist and songwriter, Swain is widely known as half of the music duo, Brown Bird, with her husband, Dave Lamb. The duo, who enjoyed national and international success, spent over six years performing and touring until Lambs untimely passing, at age 36, from leukemia in April 2014. That summer, Swain launched The Huntress and Holder of Hands, which began as a creative vessel for exploring both her grief and her growth. Her original songs were home-recorded and solo-performed using multi-layer tracks of voice and strings. Live, The Huntress and Holder of Hands employs five musicians with duties on cello, string bass, electric bass, voice and drums, with Swain primarily on five-string viola and guitar.
Deeply rooted in Swain and Lambs shared experience, The Huntress and Holder of Hands pulls creative energy from the same emotional place as Brown Bird, building unique harmony, string and bass-driven pieces influenced by Eastern European, Americana and Middle Eastern music, among other genres, and offering an intense musical and lyrical experience that explores love, loss, power and strength.
Currently an all trans and genderqueer four-piece, Loone grew out of several years of Noel'le Longhaul's solo work as a home recording artist. Loone is able to exist as a performance project through the assistance of Nick Berger, Alyssa Kai, and Ruby Vespertillo after the construction of an expansive and diverse series of recordings of many tiny thoughts. Loone in its current formation presents a itself as a funnel of many years of stored and catalogued energies and movements.
