'FOUR DAYS AWAY' by JOHN MARK NELSON - a side note.
Something you may not know about Auslandish Co, is who the 'we' of Auslandish are.
Auslandish was started by Sarah Nelson. In the background her husband, John Mark Nelson (our head of operations) crunches numbers and manages the logistics of the company. John Mark's full-time work however is as a songwriter, producer, and engineer.
His latest work, Four Days Away, was created at the Everwood Farmstead in Wisconsin, over a period of 4 days. If you have not heard of Everwood, we strongly suggest you explore their website and do your best to make it out to a show or workshop. It is a beautiful and unique experience every time.
During his long days of work in the barn, Sarah sat at a large table in the farmhouse working on the finalizing the newest Auslandish series, as well as working on her solo exhibit this November with The Natural Heritage Project.
The album art is pulled from one of her works for the Natural Heritage Project, and was concluded during their stay at the farm (layout design by the amazing Lisa Albinson).
Four Days Away, is a very unique and exciting Auslandish Collaboration.
