Windowseat began as a group of lusty thespians playing jazz-folk in their spare time after rehearsals for high school theatre in Northern Virginia. Although their numbers have always been in flux, the men and women who play in Windowseat, past, present, and future remain deeply bound through friendship and love for music. Now based out of Richmond, VA, Windowseat draws inspiration from moments of hope and isolation, the dreams and passions of their peers, and the inherent beauty of nautical imagery. Their music seems to reconcile the differences between the disparate tastes of the people who play it, combining ambient textures, Celtic and neoclassical melodies, and lyrics in elementary meters that explore themes of travel, separation, and alienation. They released their first EP entitled The Snow on March 8, 2010. Their debut album, Moonbird, will be released March 8th, 2011 online through the Philadelphia-based Lillian Records.
