Recent Memory was formed in 1993 by Steven Hall and Joyce Bowden, to further explore Arthur’s beautiful music. It wasn’t until the winter of 2009 that Recent Memory came together in North Carolina to record some of the songs they’d worked on with Arthur. This EP focuses on five of Arthur’s songs. Recorded at Circle Sound in Raleigh North Carolina, all renditions of these songs are dedicated to Arthur’s enduring spirit. Special thanks to Tom Lee for being there, and for continuing in the spirit of his muse.

Arthur Russell was a beautiful muse. He was our friend. We’ve been singing these mostly acoustic songs since 1994.
