“Lambke is one of Canada’s best lyricists: put your headphones on and give in to the temptation to close your eyes.” CBC Music

Memory is the daughter of heaven and earth, and the muse is a daughter of memory and everything. It is traditional for an artist to call on the muse at the beginning of an endeavour. This suggests that the great works of art begin, not in the presence of the muse, but in her absence. – Amanda Jernigan

What one can’t speak, that one must pass over in silence – Wittgenstein.

If Steven Lambke were a bird he’d be a Zeppelin – Daniel Romano

The poem/songs of Days Of Heaven look beyond language, beyond love, beyond god, into the void, trying for a good light and a rough grace. This tender, intimate, and personal album by Steven Lambke, Constantines member, You’ve Changed Records founder, and former Baby Eagle, features Tamara Lindeman of The Weather Station and Ian Kehoe of Marine Dreams, and special appearances by Richard Laviolette, Mika Posen, and Darcy Hancock (Ladyhawk). They make a close, rich sound, thick with flowers and crossed by swallows, as hard as dead stones, as gone as an echo in the silence.

Shary Boyle’s ceramic sculpture La Lune graces the cover; grace and muse, a thing of beauty
