Asa Irons is a Terrra Mystic tradesman born in New Hampshire, USA. A stonemason and carpenter by trade, he gracefully distills these salt of the earth qualities into song. Havine been a central figure in the band Feathers, as well as playing in Witch, MV&EE, and Taboo, Asa is no stranger to spiritual/sonic environs. His songs are meticulously crafted, yet maintain an open and humble feeling. On "Knife Gift Debt," Asa explodes his past recordings. A stone foundation blossoms into a structure which can encompass the whole, all elements of this incredibly dynamic songwriter getting equal play. Traditional folk forms still provide the backbone for these songs, but like all folk masterpieces, the rules yield to the artist's vision. The now elaborate, lush arrangements of this new and original material are composed by Asa himself, and recorded and co-produced by Caleb Mulkerin and Micah Blue Smalldone. The sound is sparse yet massive, cinematic and extremely intimate. Asa has enlisted close friends Big Blood, Micha Blue Smalldone, Tom K, Janane Tripp and others to help carry out this vision.
