Originally released in 2008, Mariee Sioux’s Faces in the Rocks immediately elevated the songwriter to the vanguard of a burgeoning California folk revival alongside Joanna Newsom, Devendra Bahnart, Vetiver, and Alela Diane. Although Mariee had already made a name for herself as a touring member of Brightblack Morning Light, it was not until the release of Faces in the Rocks that Mariee’s agile fingerpicking and impressionistic songwriting made her one of the movement’s leading figures.

Sadly, the label that originally released Faces in the Rocks disbanded just as the album’s momentum was secure. The first pressing of the CD sold out, there was no vinyl pressed whatsoever, and the master recordings were lost in the shuffle of legal wrangling. Years passed. Mariee released an EP with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and a sophomore solo LP, Gift for the End. She toured Europe and the U.S. extensively, and her fans kept asking for Faces in the Rocks. With their support, Mariee successfully mounted a kickstarter campaign to buy back the rights to her recording...and the rest is history.

Now, with the help of Whale Watch Records and Almost Musique, Mariee Sioux’s groundbreaking debut will see the light of day once more.
