Fort St. John will always be the home of Twin Peaks, but Lindsay Pratt and Naomi Shore are out making themselves known as mountains of their own.
While Shore recently released a new, debut solo album, Pratt is busy carving a new musical trail for herself in Edmonton too.
Her latest tune, Getting By, was coined as "atheist gospel" by a friend, and it's a term Pratt's sticking to.
"The long dark days of a Canadian winter can really bring a body down. The cold months are a time for quiet and repose, but come February it can feel rather bleak," Pratt writes.
"We all have things in life that lay us low and hold us back from doing what we love and are passionate about. Some of us face illness and chronic pain, we suffer losses of great magnitude, we have addictions to overcome, we share inter-generational trauma, we become our own worse critics, we hang on to resentment and feel ourselves growing bitter.
"Then the light returns both figuratively, and, as in the spring, literally. We feel ourselves begin to thaw out, take heart, and grow. For some this is a seasonal cycle, for others it is a constant battle.
"There will always be a friend to listen and a song to sing if we search it out. We get through, we get by, we keep moving on."
Getting By will be part of Pratt's new album, in the early stages of development.
