The combination of a sibling duet, a natural acoustic guitar, and some fiddle mojo strikes the right balance to support these harmonic hooks.

Five Islands’ sense of narrative paints a broad scene from daily life: the routine, the little victories, and the loss of hope that comes from living outside of your purpose. Coupled with an inspired vocal delivery, this beautiful song makes a clear case for taking a minute to figure it out.

It could be the smallest thing that makes a difference in your life: a smile at the right time, a simple act of kindness for the right person; the idea that the next minute could bring happiness is a very powerful force. The combination of a sibling duet, a natural acoustic guitar, and some fiddle mojo strikes the right balance to support these harmonic hooks.

Five Islands is a folk duet from Dallas, TX. This song is featured on our Lost Treasure - Americana playlist.
