about

Walker Road Schoolhouse is an Americana album by Alison Harris and The Barn Owls recorded live and analog at the historic Walker Road Schoolhouse building in Two Rock, CA. The goal of this recording was to capture the organic warmth and spontaneity of the band playing music in a beautiful old room together. The Walker Road Schoolhouse building, located in Sonoma County (Northern California) features high ceilings, a fire in the hearth, and views of green fields and mustard flowers through old glass windows. The majority of the music, including all lead vocals band instrumentals, and band solos, was captured live on tape with the band playing in a circle. Overdubs included vintage instruments with lots of character- Wurlitzer, Hammond B-3 organ, Pedal Steel, and Vibraphone. Alison Harris and The Barn Owls are Alison Harris (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys), Erik Stieg (Mandolin, Electric Guitar), Ben Bolin (Fiddle), Max Ramey (Bass), and Chipley Trombley (Drums, Percussion, Back Up Vocals). Produced by Alison Harris and The Barn Owls. Engineered, Mixed and Mastered by Brad Dollar.

lyrics

Trace Your Soul

In order to tell the truth of you
I had to use these minor chords
You say that you don’t
But Doll, you do
Play with my heart around the sore

In our twisted fate
Why do love and hate
Come so close to bear
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark

Do you hate me because I have your time
Now I’m caught between yours and mine
I can’t tell the difference between the two
I feel like you’re me and I am you

When I’ve had enough
It’s a sweeter pain
Our breath came close
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark

You’ve got to get out of my head
There’s someone I’ve got to choose instead
It’s hard when you’re pounding through my heart
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark

Trace Your Soul

In order to tell the truth of you

Play with my heart around the sore

In our twisted fate
Why do love and hate
Come so close to bear
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark

Do you hate me because I have your time
Now I’m caught between yours and mine
I can’t tell the difference between the two
I feel like you’re me and I am you

When I’ve had enough
It’s a sweeter pain
Our breath came close
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark

You’ve got to get out of my head
There’s someone I’ve got to choose instead
It’s hard when you’re pounding through my heart
When I trace your soul in the dark
I can trace your soul in the dark
