About the Album

Returning to Drown Myself, Finally is the sixth track from trumpeter/composer Nate Wooley’s latest album, Ancient Songs of Burlap Heroes. With the self-titled 2019 debut of his remarkable quartet Columbia Icefield, trumpeter/composer Wooley traced the Columbia River from his Oregon hometown to its glacial headwaters, sonically reckoning with the awe-inspiring beauty of the immense icefield. The band’s breathtaking follow-up, Ancient Songs of Burlap Heroes, essentially brings the project full circle, a thematic homecoming that contrasts the intimacy of one’s roots with the vastness of the wider world.
