Mouths of Babes

With more than a dozen albums and over a thousand shows between them, Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth of Mouths of Babes are no strangers to the contemporary folk-Americana music scene. For years, their respective bands Girlyman and Coyote Grace captivated thousands of loyal fans as they crisscrossed the country, rocked festival main stages, andtoured with the likes of Indigo Girls and Dar Williams. Now, they have distilled the very best of the songwriting, musicianship, and humor of their previous groups into a power duo that brings more depth and style than ever before.

World Brand New, the stunning self-produced follow-up to Mouths of Babes' award-winning full-length debut Brighter in the Dark, is a Folk/Americana album in the old-fashioned sense:an album with an arc, meant to be listened to all the way through on good headphones with no distractions. With ten songs that range from stuck-in-your-head catchy to cinematic and orchestral, married duo Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth take you on the Hero’s Journey hinted at in the cover art.  One must venture out to the turbulent sea, step fully into the chaos of the world, and face a reckoning, to finally come home. The album can be read as an inner journey, a relationship coming full circle, or a national reckoning — and is meant as all of these.

Mixed by Nino Moschella of Bird & Egg Studios and mastered by sound designer Bijan Sharifi, the duo created the enchanting sonic landscape in “World Brand New” with the help of multi-instrumentalist Michael Connolly, percussionists Sean Trischka and Joe Chellman, Tania Elizabeth of The Avett Brothers, cellist Mai Bloomfield of the Jason Mraz Band, Tonight Show Band veteran Vicki Randle, and Grammy Award-nominated vocalist Melanie deMore (among others).

As a proudly independent band, Mouths of Babes draws their strength and momentum from a fierce, loyal fan base, grown over their many years as road dogs. “We feel incredibly lucky to have been able to make exactly the album we wanted to make and to have such a strong career,” says Ty, “thanks to our incredible fans, who believe in supporting the music that matters to them.”
