Leaving Laurel was an accidental music collaboration between Pierce Fulton and Gordon Huntley where a lot of things in both of their lives perfectly aligned. After meeting first on the internet and becoming roommates in LA, both spent time together creating music and collaborating together. Gordon’s musical career began as one-half of Botnek, whereas Fulton explored his own solo self-titled project.
Eventually, their paths crossed as Leaving Laurel emerged. Both artists were working together in California on album where many of the early songs were released over the past year, including “sometimes it’s scary but it’s still just you and me.” The two finished their debut album prior to the passing of Fulton earlier this year.
First off of the debut album is a new single titled “Winter in the Woods,” “a track inspired by the duo’s time isolated in the woods of Connecticut & Vermont.”
Give it a listen below:
“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” – Pierce Fulton, via Eddie Cantor.
Stay tuned for the debut album, due later this summer.
