Hazel Rickard explores the storms within and the wildness around in her new album The Garden. Her work reminds each of me that to survive in this world is to embrace your shadows and dance with them. Listen to Nightingale’s favorite song “The Wild”here.

Hazel Ra is a collection of the art, music, and adventures of Hazel Rickard and her collaborators. Since 2008, Hazel Rickard has biked across the country and worked as an artist in residence at Elsewhere in Greensboro, NC and Art Farm in Nebraska. She pieces together chance encounters and stories from those journeys in “The Shadows,” the first studio album by Hazel Ra. Hazel’s songs, at once haunting and comforting, intimate and distant, evoke the storytelling of the great American songwriters—weaving together mythologies, histories, and voices that have become distant over time.
