The OaKs


SONG (MP3): The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

ALBUM: Songs For Waiting

FILE UNDER: Indie / Alternative / Folk

LABEL: none

INFO: In late 2003, just two years after 9/11, The OaKs's Ryan Costello sold everything he owned, joined a humanitarian organization and moved to Afghanistan. Costello lived there for two years, working in the Central Afghan mountains with returned refugees, teaching them creative agricultural techniques and becoming fluent in their native language, Farsi. Late at night, while the dust storms blocked out the stars and rattled the windows, he would sit and work out impressions of what he had seen and heard that day on his acoustic guitar.
