Part Two: Love and Death


Part Two: Love and Death


Released in 2015

Love and Death is the second EP of Valcour's ten-year anniversary project, I Wanna Sing Right: Rediscovering Lomax in the Evangeline Country. Produced by Joel Savoy and Joshua Caffery, I Wanna Sing Right is a limited edition set of four EPs that capture some of South Louisiana's most talented artists performing fresh takes on a series of folk songs—both French and English—archived in Louisiana in 1934 by the late Alan and John Lomax. We will release one EP each quarter during 2015 and the full set can be purchased now with a commemorative box and printed liners. Or, each EP can be purchased individually as they are released.
