about

Autumnal, the first of Packwood’s four part seasonal epic, Vertumnus, contemplates the concept of changeability, and what it means to fall. Elements of folk and chamber music – both instrumental and vocal - intertwine to create a rich, immersive reflection of Autumn. Moving between bright anticipation and shaded resolve, this first release of Vertumnus is an ode to Packwood’s previous work, and the beginning of a much grander story.

about

Packwood Melbourne, Australia

Folk musician Packwood creates stories that are at once intimate and as expansive as our place in the universe. Songs about our senses, our love, our world are awakened with sweeping arrangements, cinematic and clear. Packwood’s work is a poetical exploration that began in a rural Australian childhood – and arrives with an open and unnerving question: where are we headed? ... more

Track Name: All Smoke Must Find Its Way Home
You could feel it start,
A shunt, a spark
A quick, racing heat.
Water, spitting from moss,
From peat,
Heat expanding,
Everything.

All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find it’s way home.
All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find its way home.

I floated up on
The edge of sight
A fleeting rushing thing.
A chance at love, at life –
At paradise, which ought to save me.

All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find it’s way home.
All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find its way home.

One full, growing orbit,
One full circle,
Moving out over ahead,
Circling round ancient,
Towers,
A storm, a song,
A bird.

All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find it’s way home.
All smoke must find its way, find its way,
All smoke must find its way,
Find its way home.
