“Henson makes it easy to inhabit her intimate world, one where the small wonders of the woods and the abounding melodic possibilities of a 12-string guitar are complementary fractals.” - NPR First Listen Following a series of highly acclaimed solo guitar albums, Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars is Sarah Louise’s most fearless work to date.

Louise broadens beyond folk forms, turning streams of raw electric guitar into entire oceans of aural texture. Her rich playing is warped beyond recognition through inventive synthesizing and digital manipulations.

The innovative songs mine components of the Appalachian folk music Louise is steeped in, as well as spiritual jazz, contemporary classical, and new age, while drawing intensely personal inspiration from the natural world.

Louise’s daring blend of heartfelt stream of conscious playing and bold studio processing demonstrate her unique ability to craft poignant music regardless of what tools she uses. She finds harmony rather than dissonance in synthesizing raw and organic materials with the technological. Sections of electronic bursts swell and ebb with a lifelike pulse, collapsing distinction between the natural and artificial. Each piece inhabits its own biosphere and Louise’s guitar and voice act as the flora and fauna. With Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars , Sarah Louise has reimagined the limitations of guitar music to create a work of sublime resplendence.
