Kalbells’ Kalmia Traver left Brooklyn to record “Ten Flowers,” heading into the lush environs of her parents’ home in Woodstock, VT. Not initially planning on creating songs for a specific release, the songs on Ten Flowers were first composed as a kind of diary for Traver, ultimately reflecting the honest self exploration that is the thesis of the album.
Traver found the quiet and solitude she imposed on herself, both geographically and artistically, liberating.
“The song Alonetime is about the beauty of that loneliness and how much there is to learn inside of it.”
