about

Poinsettia by Heaven & the Ghosts is a portrayal of the modern renaissance of folk fusion. Intricately woven tales about a girl who lives both in this world and the next, taking those who listen through her ethereal story of a winter's night and day.

Spending three years studying jazz at Macewan university while writing the album, Brownell took what felt like a mirrored reflection of the winter of her life to inspire a story that begins at the end. The songwriting reflects Brownell’s long standing affair with folk songs however the music has been dreamed up to expand the ballads of flower folk with three part harmony swells, ambient wash guitars, nostalgic organ psychedelia and baroque pop hooks.

Heaven Brownell, Tiana Barnes & Kaiya Derkach-Kodie together give a magnetic presence super-soaked in soul swelling harmonies as the novel face of Heaven & The Ghosts. The album highlights attention to influences such as Lord Huron, Youth Lagoon, and Fleet Foxes. Poinsettia gives reverie and tenderness to those who feel furthest away from the sun. Poinsettia is set to release January 19th 2017.

Track Name: HIllTOP II
HIllTOP II

Climb to the top of a long lone hill
As the crest frames the sky as your windowsill
In the Frost its hard to rise, the sun always will
Open your eyes darling, be still
Open your eyes darling be still
The Earth Fast asleep all beneath your feet
Tucked in like a child under a vast white sheet
Lullaby in the sky reflects like a mirror
Rose Morning Mountain Clear
If winter's tide alone isn't your cure
Climb the top of the hill darling I'll be here
Climb the top of the hill darling I'll be here
Climb the top of the hill darling I'll be here.
Track Name: Bitter Wind Mountain Man
Bitter Wind Mountain Man

Pray to the mountain man, any day the snow will fall
Ask for a gentle storm, pristine white he warns a bitter wind calls
I dream of a distant land far away where the waters flow
They say seek and they shall find the streams are ice
my heart is cold
Don't question what has come to pass
Vengeful Mountain man beckons an avalanche

Setting sun shone to pass
a shadow of a dark and stormy mass
Don't question what has come to pass
Vengeful Mountain man beckons an avalanche

Trapped beneath an icy cave
nature moves beyond the grave
I wonder if this is where my bones eternally lay
Do I wish to be saved

Buried underneath the snow
Echo chambers far below
The Mountain man, grabs my hand
And down we go.
Track Name: Good Morning Bonnie Doon
Good Morning Bonnie Doon

Good Morning Bonnie Doon
I walk the city streets under your crescent moon
dead on my feet feeling lights and sounds under the cities croon
I sing to a winters tide a frosty hymm of bitter lullabies
one dark night breaks a sombre souls frame of mind
Cities cool like a sleepers breathe
I count the beats within my chest
Do I tread lofty hills or rest
take this path for I am alone

Highlands far in the East
Remember me, your June Peach
If I grow restless don't you let me sleep
I'm not coming Home

I climb the alpine slope and burrow through the trees
I find shelter in these sweet melodies
If those who I love lay down in good ole Bonnie Doon
I will sing them this home coming tune

High lands far in the East
Remember me, your June peach
If I grow restless won't you let me sleep
I'm not coming home

High lands far in the East
Remember me, your June peach
If I grow restless won't you let me sleep
I'm not coming home
I'm not coming home
I'm not coming home
Track Name: Old Vacations
Old Vacations

In a velvet sky
Three suns hang above
one for you, one for me, one for the girl we love
dreaming of, those old vacations
sand and sea, a wave of patience
washes over me

Later days
passing slowly
a bed we made
now on my own
only lonely
floating in the shade
the tide can tow me
a twist inside
what a heart can hide
where your words can hold me
In

In the meadow we can do a sunny salutation
I've been walking down the hill
looking for humble conversation
would you divide silver lungs with our breath freshly pacing
turn it a new shade of pink conquer troubles that were facing
I've seen through so many eyes
and seen only my reflection
colour in a vision
a mind with no direction
only I can see it
only I can see it

Only you can take away my Breathe
Only you can take away my Breathe
Only you can take away my Breathe
Only you can take away my Breathe
