[buying it]

After signing with Virt Records in May 2002, Vienna went to Nashville to work on new arrangements with producer David Henry. (He may have impressive credits, having worked with the Cowboy Junkies, Josh Rouse and the like, but it was his easygoing humor and skills on the cello that cinched it.) She walked out of the little Tennessee studio a week later with The Tower, Gravity and Enough To Go By in brand new clothes, a new friend in Mr. Henry, and a newfound taste for Southern cooking.

Adam Tow, who has been faithfully documenting Vienna's shows over the past two years, shot the photographs for the new artwork.







The Tower













Say Uncle




Enough To Go By



Unwritten Letter #1


Eric's Song


Soon Love Soon


Lullabye For A Stormy Night



Decade And One


Waking Hour
(2001 release)

The original album was released in May 2001, and sold out a little over a year later. All the same songs appear on the Virt Records release.

This is a collection of aural photographs, if you will. Some of these songs are more photogenic than others -- Soon Love Soon and Drought, for example, are actually more beautiful than their representations in the album. But Daughter looks like herself, as does Decade and One, and Between would too if she hadn't fussed so much with her makeup. We aren't professional photographers, either, so we didn't always know how to get them comfortable enough to let their real spirits show. But it was a lot of fun working on this project, and we hope you'll forgive the imperfections and enjoy the collection of snapshots we've gathered.


demo 1998

Though Vienna and Eric Miller started working together in the spring of 1998, it wasn't until several months later that they finally got their act together and released an "official" recording. The effort was largely motivated by their horror that preliminary versions and outtakes of songs were beginning to circulate widely. "Well, if you came out with a CD we'd buy that," people argued. "Since you're not providing us with anything else..." The oh-so-imaginatively-named demo debuted in the winter of that year, and sales were encouragingly brisk. However, a traumatic trip to the print shop and much fighting with a 4x CD burner discouraged the two from making a second run, so it went quickly out of print.
