about

The Writing House is where we go when the northern winds of a Midwestern winter force us indoors. When the river of our lives meets a change of pace and carves it's frigid waters around a bend, The Writing House is what we seek: a quiet home, a mother's embrace, a gentle reminder of our temporary existence.

In the narrow space between hope and faith, we desperately grasp for answers. The Writing House harbors our insecurities and shelters us from the waves that seek to wash us out on our never ending search for certainty.

The Writing House LP will be available via Tandem Shop Records in the fall of 2013.
