Premiering today on Northwest Music Scene is “Ashes On The Ground” from Tobias the Owl from the new album Visalia.
Tobias the Owl is a critically-acclaimed, award winning folktronica and cinematic post-rock outfit, based in the Pacific Northwest. Some of Tobias the Owl’s songs have been covered by Jonah Tolchin and John McAuley of Deer Tick, and Tobias the Owl has notably collaborated with Ben Harper, Laura Veirs, and many other Grammy-winning artists. The newest record by Tobias the Owl, Visalia, is a somber reflection by front person, Elijah Dhavvan on his youth spent living homelessly, hitchhiking across the US, and being a high school drop-out and first-generation immigrant. The record is the most confessional and intimate of Tobias the Owl’s works so far, with all of the instruments played and recorded by Dhavvan.
