Close your eyes and imagine a walk through an ancient forest, the wind stirring the high branches, pine needles under your feet, A cabin. A sad girl sings a beautiful song, whilst her brother idly picks at his homemade guitar. We are Snoqualmie Falls, and this is the soundtrack to our dream life. Where we're from the birds sing a pretty song, and there's always music in the air.
Jeff is based in Sussex UK
Alicia is from the Waikato lowlands surrounding Hamilton, New Zealand
Jeff has released solo material under the name ‘Listening Mirror’ on various labels, in different parts of the world including Hibernate (UK), Cooper Cult (NZ), Twiceremoved (AUS) and Dronarivm (RUS), as well as a few self released albums.
Alicia records solo material under the name ‘birds of passage’ and has released 3 albums on the Denovali label in Germany. She has also worked with The Dale Cooper Quartet and Aiden Baker.
Snoqualmie Falls was formed two years ago when Jeff and Alicia discovered each other’s music by chance, and contacted each other to see if a collaboration was possible.
The music is a combination of Jeff’s treated guitar drones and field recordings and Alicia’s beautiful and haunting whispered vocals.
We hope you enjoy our music, and if it is of any interest to you, please contact us.
