Lark Rize is an acoustic folk duo frequently complimented for their well-blended vocal harmonies and thoughtful repertoire.   

Comprised of Joe on acoustic guitar and Elena on acoustic upright bass, micro-bass, and guitar, this husband and wife team performs a range of insightful original songs as well as select material from the vast contemporary and traditional folk genre.  

Personal stories, human foibles, world views, musical sensitivities - all inspire their original compositions and song selection.  Combining metaphors of nature, urban roots, humor, pathos, and a dash of old fashioned nostalgia, it is music that is true to the heart.


"....the lark at break of day arising......."
Shakespeare, Sonnet 29

What's New?

Thanks for checking back! As we said in March, we are working on some new recordings which we'll be adding to our website.  We've posted a preview of one of our new songs (Signals) which you can listen to in the Music section.   You can also listen to our old recordings and videos, but better still, check our schedule for upcoming appearances.  Thanks for visiting!
