Little Mazarn, after a year of touring & songwriting, returns with their second album, Io. Coming out on Self Sabotage Records in May 2019, the album finds them expanding their musical palette & filling out their sound while maintaining their deceptively simple approach. Ever the consummate collaborators, Little Mazarn includes guest vocals by Will Johnson (Centro-matic; South San Gabriel) & Kendra Kinsey, vibraphone & drums by Thor Harris (Thor & Friends; Swans; Shearwater) and fiddle & kalimba by Ralph White (Bad Livers). Five exquisite originals and two covers: Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" and Country Willie Edwards' "Marfa Lights."
Special thanks to the Austin weirdo music community and most especially to Thor Harris, Peggy Ghorbani, Sarah LaPuerta, Rich Russell, Craig Ross, David Longoria, Will Johnson, and Ralph White.

Courtney's voice pairs beautifully with the harps and the musicians are some of the best rAdelaide has to offer! the lyrics are heart rending and real. what a beautiful collaboration of talent on this album! I have to go now and play it again! well done to all involved! absolutely beautiful! ❤❤❤ shazzy_kaboom
you can let yourself be guided blindly by emily's voice with such truthfulness, emotionaly vounrbality presented in this album with so much beautiful simplicity and grace.
emily's voice carry the stories in this album by giving a fair light into her songs, with music that plays as a great soundtrack to the stories. when i witness a true artist, beautiful soul, its very hard for me to ignore. lovepsy38
Honestly it's so hard picking one favourite off this album, every song is as good as the last, and the flow to it is perfect. Organ Donor is going to have to be it though, because I heard it back before this album was released, live, and spent ages trying to find it. Absolute belter! probablyzach
