"Triumphantly unexpected and ever-surprising...John Lee Hooker meets Patti Smith meets Leonard Cohen meets Laurie Anderson? Yes please." – Music News (UK)

"The Carole King of her generation..." - Blurt Magazine

The Long Farewells
On their debut album, "Only the Stars"—fittingly named after a line from a 1918 Carl Sandburg poem—Chicago's The Long Farewells look to bring to light unknown stories of the 1910s. In their trademark style of unearthing the beauty in tragedy, singer Gabrielle Schafer and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Rester have created a haunting portrait of America at a time of creative destruction that echoes our own. AmericanaUK calls the work “a fine album with lyrics to pique your interest and imagination... pleasingly literate songs with stories to tell,” and Murry Hammond of The Old 97’s says "The songs and recordings are fabulous.”
