Early Fern, an ambient writer from New York, USA, will release a British ambient label in March 2023.It is a record released from Métron Records.

Contains eight pastoral ambient songs that interweave live instruments with field recordings made at the farm where Early Fern worked. Joseph Shabason also participates. It is a color disc.

Below is a commentary by the label.

Early Fern's third album, Perpetual Care, released on Métron Records, is largely inspired by memories of time and place with great emotional significance.Early and his partner worked on a rural farm in central New York. We lived in a small camper in a valley between two long ridges, surrounded by flowing streams, rocky waterfalls, hemlock and maple trees.

However, suddenly, her life was turned upside down when she was suddenly kicked out of this place surrounded by nature.This "Perpetual Care" chronicles the upheaval moments of her life for the Early family and reminds her of her former hometown.

"Making music was a haven, a place where I could create freely and openly both within and without my emotions. In a way, this is my farewell album to the place I fell in love with. I think."

A deeply personal record, Perpetual Care was Early's first piece of music after starting hormone replacement therapy for her gender reassignment, and the experience was deeply rooted in their memories and their relationship to these songs. She thinks it made a big difference.

But despite this intimacy, Early bravely shares her inner experiences with the world, making Perpetual Care an exuberant, expressive ode to the life force of Mother Nature. It is.The densely layered album, with waves and currents, stands as a rich sonic monument to the beauty and healing power of nature.

“The name Perpetual Care was drawn from small signs placed around the local cemetery, but I expanded its meaning to suit my needs. At that time, my needs were still being met, and even if someone or a place was removed from my life, the memory would be preserved in me forever.”

Due to the nomadic lifestyle, Perpetual Care was born out of technical and physical limitations.Created using a cheap digital piano, a laptop, and a talented bass guitar and clarinet, the piece interweaves live instrumentation and field recordings around the farm.

In addition, this work is also the work that Early collaborated with others for the first time and performed music activities.The lead single, "Softly Brushed By Wind," showcases Joseph Shabason's beautiful wind instrumentation, which Early says is "deeply satisfying and moving."

Metron Records:

"The bulk of Perpetual Care, Early Fern's third album for Métron Records, was inspired by memories of a time and place of great emotional significance. Early and their partner had been working at a rural farm in Central New York, living in a small campervan nestled in a valley between two long ridges, with flowing creeks and rocky waterfalls, surrounded by hemlock and maple trees.

Unexpectedly they were evicted from this place of vast natural wonder and their lives were hastily upturned. Unable to return to the place they had grown so fond of, Perpetual Care stands as a document to this moment of upheaval in Early's life and the recollection of their former home.

“Creating music was a refuge, a place where I could create freely and openly both within and beyond my emotional state. In a way, I think of this as a break-up album with a place I had fallen in love with.”

A deeply personal record, Perpetual Care stands as the first musical creation from Early after beginning hormone replacement therapy for gender transition, an experience they believe heavily informed their relationship to their memories and to these songs.

But despite this intimacy, with Early bravely sharing their interior experience with the world, Perpetual Care is an overflowing and expressive ode to the life force of Mother Nature. Densely layered, the album ebbs and flows and stands as a rich sonic monument to the beauty and healing power of nature.

'' The name Perpetual Care was drawn from some little signs which were placed around the local cemeteries, but I expanded the meaning to fit my needs. In my time of greatest deprivation, I am privileged that my needs were still met. When the people and places I love are gone from my life, their memories dwell inside me in Perpetual Care.''

Owing to their nomadic lifestyle, Perpetual Care is borne from technical and physical limitations. Created using a cheap digital piano, a laptop, a gifted bass guitar and a clarinet, the work interweaves live instrumentation with field recordings taken from sites around the farm.

It also marks the first time Early has been able to collaborate with another person in their musical practice. Lead single 'Softly Brushed By Wind' features Joseph Shabason contributing some beautiful wind work in a synergetic experience Early called “deeply gratifying and inspiring”."
