Back to Eden

Shawnee Kilgore and Joss Whedon

This is the long awaited collaboration EP of Shawnee Kilgore and Hollywood director Joss Whedon, who met via Kickstarter in 2014 when Whedon backed her campaign for A Long and Precious Road and earned himself a personalized song.

Big Giant Me was the first single they released that year, and Back to Eden the second in March 2016. The title track also inspired a gorgeous music video, directed by Whedon, including actress Ashley Johnson and Oscar nominated actor Richard Jenkins, released January 23rd.

Austin Skyline

Shawnee Kilgore

“i like to think that the end is also the beginning.  sometimes i forget.  on my way, back to a home that i know and love, while a part of me stays, keeps my bed warm, my songs sung, 'til i return.  not an end, just a mile marker.  not a final note, just a key change.  not a final word, there won't be one.  language will keep growing, the words just redefined.”

this is a collection of time and energy and life shared by william and i, and we’ve both agreed it’s about as true to us as it can be. my songs, but our efforts, our breath. the first six were written during my first few months in austin, while “burning 44” was written by my good friend, stephen ray leslie, and, well, it seems i just so happened to bring it with me.

Second Hand Dress

Shawnee Kilgore

this album was recorded at dirt floor studio in chester, connecticut with eric lichter. says lichter of the album, "it's just brilliant,and wobbly,and worn in like a favorite sweater in the cold winter." the actual recording time of the album was very short, lending itself to many magic moments, impromptu musicians and parts, and raw first takes. it grew very organically, and came out raw and sweet and intimate at the end.

This Mighty World E.P.

Shawnee Kilgore

my debut certainly feels like a long time ago now, but making this album opened up some tremendous doors for me.....i was perhaps happier than i had ever been sitting in lorne entress's basement studio making a little piece of my history. lorne doesn't mess around; if it's worth doing then it's worth doing right, and i really appreciate that now (more than i did at the time, i'm sure!) when i listen to this record and it's truly music to my ears (so to speak :). we did it right. we had some amazing musicians come in and i got to be present while my songs inspired folks who had never met me before to put forth a piece of themselves to mesh and mix and mingle with mine. there's nothing quite like that, and i'm grateful.
