About the Album

"Walls and Roses" is a track from "Artlessly Falling" from Mary Halvorson’s Code Girl album. Combining Halvorson’s poetry with scripted and spontaneous composition, the album features Halvorson with a very special guest vocalist – the legendary British musician Robert Wyatt – along with longtime creative associates Amirtha Kidambi on vocals, Michael Formanek on bass and Tomas Fujiwara on drums, alongside new collaborators Adam O’Farrill on trumpet and María Grand on tenor saxophone and vocals.
