Take It With You is a collaborative effort between Waiting on the Dawn, Phalon Thornhill, and Sister Vigilante. It features 8 songs about being lost, being found, and the in-betweens.
Take It With You was recorded in two sessions surrounding a hurricane in late October / early November 2012 in Haledon, New Jersey.
Waiting on the Dawn combines influences such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Sufjan Stevens, and River City Extension, into a sound that fully embraces the folk-rock revival of the 2010's. Diverse instrumentation, lyrics which venture into the concrete and the abstract, and a hint of remembrance all come together in your speakers (or earphones, if you have roommates.)
Phalon Thornhill is an English major and aspiring songwriter who has spent her entire life dedicated to the arts. Time after her studies is spent strumming away on her guitar and writing songs. Her sound is inspired by Corrine Bailey Rae, Troi, and Zee Avi.
Sister Vigilante is a crime fighting nun who records music in her spare time. When she isn't off performing miracles in third world countries, she is usually found making music comparable to Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, Say Anything, and Mumford & Sons. Also, Lamb of God and Meshuggah.
