Sleepy Turtles first came together to create a soundtrack for a novel (http://www.emblemandlantern.com) written by vocalist/guitarist Dylan Higgins, who then decided to keep making music using a moniker which came from a chapter title in said novel.
Consisting of Higgins, Tim Friesen, Will Parker, Marcus Trail and Mike Vanklaveren, Sleepy Turtles create songs, simplistic in frame, but broad in context, threaded in the old tradition of folk. Their music creaks with the thaw of an old church pew, drawing joy in wandering harmonies and stories that are sewn by hands covered in earth, filling the bones of the songs as ambience backlights the fluttering travels of shared existence. “We hope to portray through the music,” Higgins explains, “that all of us are a part of the same journey.”
Fans of Sleepy Turtles can still download a FREE copy of their previously unreleased EP “Brother, You’re So Kind” for a limited time on Noisetrade. Follow, share and support them as they begin their journey.
