Each member their own impressive creative entity, GARDEN PARTY thrives at the incomparable junctions of feelings and thoughts. The group strives for a sound which empathizes, assures, and enlivens. Their lyric driven, joy striven, neo-rustic folk-rock aims (while incorporating an aural spectrum which flawlessly ranges from fiddle to synthesizer) to accomplish just what your favorite garden might: pleasant, inclusive, and adaptive 'place making'. GARDEN PARTY is sonic comfort, emotional reassurance, and social affirmation.
'CAROLINIANA' is the first of a 3-part mini-album series to make its debut. Named after Ontario's stunningly bio-diverse deciduous woodland and its role in Doerksen's childhood nostalgia, 'CAROLINIANA' will be released independently as a limited "field lyric guide" booklet. Each field-guide will contain collaborative artwork, plant-able wildflower seed paper download cards, and album lyrics. You can expect CAROLINIANA'S counterparts to be released in the spring of 2020 and 2021.
