about

The album was written by Marjorie Lee and features songs about people, places, and life experiences; some good, and some incredibly painful, but necessary. Marjorie is a lifelong Ohio resident, and many themes of this album are her way of making peace with existing in a political climate that is not always safe or welcoming for QPOC, a strong juxtaposition with the lush green landscape and gentle rolling hills that make Ohio so warm and inviting. Marjorie grew up in Oxford, Ohio with the band’s drummer/percussionist Kristin Agee. The band’s bassist, and Kristin’s husband Jon Lattier, is also a lifelong Ohio resident, having lived his entire life in and around Cincinnati, Ohio. The song “Ohio” attempts to capture the push and pull of claiming space in a hostile social environment while retreating into Ohio’s natural beauty for healing and inspiration. “Smile” was written for Marjorie’s late mother, just before she lost her battle with cancer. The band performed this song for Marjorie’s mother just before she passed, a memory they will always cherish. Not all of the songs are about struggle and loss; both Marjorie and her husband Dustin are alumni of Public Allies, an Americorps program. The song “Good People” is about having an amazing, life changing experience with a group of incredibly talented and dedicated people who are passionate about social justice and community.
