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
