Synopsis

Album Description
HEM?s debut album Rabbit Songs now available again through Rounder Records. HEM has drawn comparisons to artists as disparate as Nick Drake, Mazzy Star, Sandy Denny and Jeff Buckley and drawn fans as varied as The Chemical Brothers, Glenn Tilbrook, Linda Thompson, James Iha and Beth Orton. The music is lush and filled with eclectic harmonies: a mandolin enveloped by an 18-piece orchestra, a pedal steel accentuated by a glockenspiel, underpinned by guitar and piano in an elaborate framework. And through it all, Sally Ellyson?s beautiful voice shaping each word. ASCAP award-winning songwriter and Rabbit Songs Co-Producer, Dan Messé sold off most of his personal possessions so he could afford the orchestras, and the luxury of being as painstaking as they wanted over the arrangements of each song. No samples, no synths, no Pro-Tools mixing and no digital studio wizardry were employed. Rabbit Songs is an old school album, recorded the old school way. Guitarist / Co-Producer Gary Maurer, a seasoned studio engineer, has engineered and / or produced a host of artists and bands including Jon Spencer, Luna and Fountains Of Wayne. "Sally Ellyson has one of those voices - an understated powerhouse that wows with serene confidence. The result is a rich debut that shouldn?t be overlooked" - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Amazing - true musical tallent beyond belief
Amy R. Switlyk | Lebanon, NJ | 11/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My father introduced me to rabbit songs when it first came out. He was truely a music man and would give me tips on unusual and fantastic talent. My father past on a few years back and some family members and I saw HEM in concert in NY. We had e-mailed the HEM web site and requested they play "Leave me here" in his honor at that concert and they did - the most wonderful performance I have ever seen. No music will ever move me to tears and emotion like HEM and I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to see them live. Thank you HEM. You are truely amazing musicians."
Great songs, great singer

"This is an amazing CD. I love all the songs and that is quite unusual. I never heard of the band before the song Half Acre was used in that commercial. They have a fresh, very well put together sound. The cd is professional without feeling over produced."
Truly wonderful

"I heard this music as background for an insurance commercial about good deeds leading to other good deeds. Little did they know that using that music led to the good deed of introducing me to this truly wonderful band."
