Front Porch House Show–“The Book of Love” by Peter Gabriel

Hi Everyone!

Hard to believe it’s already been two years since Katie and I made our first tour together, which launched right after Valentine’s Day, 2012! If we stayed with you, we probably gave you discounted Valentine’s Chocolates as a “thank you” gift. (Wow, so generous!) It’s also hard to believe that it’s been only two years–so much has happened since then.

In honor of that anniversary and (the day after–oops!) Valentine’s Day, we are releasing the next video in our “Front Porch House Concert” series. This song is by Peter Gabriel, “The Book of Love.” I fell hard for this song from the first time Katie played it, and then was sad that I couldn’t find a version as beautiful as hers when I scoured the internet! So if you are as into Katie’s beautiful voice and version of this song as I am, this will come as exciting news: click here for video.

I wish Katie could be here in Portland for our upcoming shows! If you are in the area, you are cordially invited to either or both. I’ve recently teamed up with a wonderful cellist, Gus Wendel, and guitar/mandolin-player, Brance Pearson. They are super talented, and we’ve been having so much fun jamming in the living room. I’m excited for you all to hear them!

About arbielle

“Arbielle” is a Portland indie-folk band featuring plucky songwriter-piano-player, Arbielle, a musician with wide eyes, a beautiful voice, and plenty of stories to share. Their songs range from goofy to passionate to heart-rending, reflecting the wild beauty and playfulness of Arbielle’s pacific northwest hippie upbringing, as well as the faith she has grown into. Arbielle’s mama taught her to sing rounds when she was two-years-old, and she never stopped singing since. As a 14-year-old she began composing with Portland’s “Young Composer’s Project,” hosted by Fear No Music, and at 18 she began a journey of singing her own songs from Walla Walla, Washington, to Brooklyn, New York. Now she has returned to her home state of Oregon, and dug in as a recording and touring musician living in Portland. In the winter of 2012 she gathered a talented team of musician friends to collaborate on a full-length album recorded at Echo Ridge Music, in Sisters, OR, and this year signed onto Headphone Records of Electronic Boy Productions, who released her premier full-length album this December. "Roots Grow Deep" is a sweet chronicle of growing pains, bicycles, broken families, funny coincidence, friendships, and coming home.  Audiences from Orcas Island to San Francisco have come away from her shows admiring her honesty, wondering at her unique perspective, and humming her beautiful tunes.  As an artist, she lifts up a universal human experience: what it is like to be Arbielle.  Even if you are not a small person living a big life, a teacher and a farmer, a sister and a daughter, a lover of Oregon and every person you’ve known, you will know exactly what she means.
