Welcome

Uncommon Folk reimagines the folk songs that made America. The music is dramatic, spatial, and ethereal; high impact cinematic music that references the electric dreams and the dreamy electric music of the last 50 years.

One of the underlying goals of this project is to inform the public and support research into Misophonia, a neurological affliction that causes a fight/flight/freeze response to otherwise normal visual and audial stimuli.

News and Updates

This Land Is Your Land has been released. 

We're happy to announce the release of our first single This Land Is Your Land. The vocal and instrumental versions are now available to be downloaded on our website here. This was a collaboration of a large team that began in 2006, with the highlight being the recording of Glen Campbell's vocal tracks in Los Angeles in 2006.

 

We will donate the profit to researching the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimers and Misophonia.

 

The single is available on Spotify, Tidal, Apple, Amazon, Google and others.

Glen Campbell has passed away. 

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the news of the passing of Glen Campbell. We first met Glen in 2010 at the recording session for This Land Is Your Land and at that point the early signs of Alzheimers were slowly being noticed.  Glen was the consummate professional and he fought this affliction like no other artist before by deciding to fight it head on and mount a tour, knowing full well the difficulties involved.  

He's a memorable shot for us from our session with Glen

 

It was an honour to know Glen for even a brief time.  May he rest in peace.

Mixing is finished...finally 

We have finally finished the mixing for our debut record.  It's been a momentous 11 year journey that began with a phone call in late 2005 in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Some of the highlights have included recording Mavis Staples in Chicago and hear her tell us the story of Roebuck Staples returning home from band practice and teaching her and her sisters the song we actually recorded with her all these years later. Other fun moments occurred with Glen Campbell joking in the vocal booth and the Blind Boys recounting their history.
