Since the release of their breakout debut in 2008, Fleet Foxes and their
frontman, singer-songwriter Robin Pecknold, have enjoyed international critical
and commercial acclaim. Drawing comparisons to Simon & Garfunkel;
Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the music of Brian Wilson, Grammy-nominated
Fleet Foxes have reshaped the American indie-folk sound, crafting songs that
are acoustically and melodically driven, steeped in gospel-like harmonies, and
propelled by resonant and timeless lyrics.

complete lyrics from 56 songs, capturing the poetic and inventive
storytelling that is a hallmark of the band’s music. These richly layered lyrics
explore the complexity, darkness, and beauty of physical and emotional landscapes,
both pastoral and modern. Alongside the lyrics, Pecknold includes
hand-written notes and candid observations on creative processes, inspirations,
and motivations.

With an introduction by celebrated author Brandon Taylor, Wading in Waist-
High Water: The Lyrics of Fleet Foxes is a moving and intimate look at the art
of songwriting, the joy of music-making, and what it means to produce meaningful
and memorable sound.
