Episode 485: Slow Flowers’ Holiday Music Special with floral designer-musician Remy Brault of Labellum Flowers and Nest of Seven
December 23rd, 2020
It’s that time again, Welcome to our annual Slow Flowers Holiday Music Special!
I’m so happy today to bring you an audio gift of music. Please enjoy my conversation with Bozeman, Montana-based Remy Brault, who with her husband and partner Fred Brault own the contemporary floral boutique Labellum Flowers. The couple originally met through music and formed a singer-songwriting duo called Nest of Seven when they lived and worked in Los Angeles.
I’ll chat with Remy about how music has influenced her path, how she has taken a long hiaitus away from music, and how she’s finding her way back to music.
We’ll hear three songs from Remy and Fred’s album, “In the Valley of the Red Sparrow,” and more!
Enjoy meeting and hearing from this multi-talented creative! And if you missed my conversation with Remy earlier this year, have a listen here (Episode 459).
Thank you, Remy, for sharing your musical influences and your floral journey — I wish you a creatively fulfilling 2021! By the way, I continue to be on the lookout for musical guests to feature each December, so if you’re a Slow Flowers member with a song to share (or even an album!), please reach out and let me know!
