This song is a reflection of my thoughts during the time my dad felt near-death while battling severe COVID. While my dad did survive, this song focuses on how I might’ve coped if he didn’t. This also focuses on how writing, remembering stories about our loved ones who have passed away can help us cope with the pain we experience, and continue to feel connected with them.

Tear Down the fences

Song is about coming together as a community through gardening and collaboration, tear down the barriers. Song was inspired when living in a neighborhood where all these fenced gardens existed and I envisioned tearing down the fences and everyone working on a community garden.

When We Do Family History

When We Do Family History

When We Do Family History
Lyrics by Angie Killian & Fen Frehner
Music by Fen Frehner

When Fen Frehner and I wrote this song, we wanted to get children and families excited about connecting with their ancestors. There are so many great ways to incorporate family history into everyday activities: bedtime stories, coloring pages, cooking an ancestor’s favorite meal or a popular dish from their country of origin, traveling, pulling out pictures, letters, and treasures–the list can go on and on! How do you involve your little ones in family history work?

We want to give a shoutout to those who recorded on this track: Shane Mickelsen for the piano recording; Sarah Arneson for the lovely cello; Janey Killian (5), Audrey Edwards (9), Hanah Cornaby, McKay Dalley, Lisa Dalley, & Craig Dalley for lending us their vocals; and to the amazing Becky Willard who recorded, mixed & mastered the vocals/cello.
