About the Artist
The Innocence Mission remain an island of calm and a beacon of hope more than a decade after their debut. From the quiet city of Lancaster PA, the three members of The Innocence Mission make their music, all of it exalting love and friendship, peace and joy.
In 1987 The Innocence Mission signed with A&M Records. Between 1989 and 1995 the band released three acclaimed albums, a 1989 self-titled debut, Umbrella (1991), and Glow (1995) which garnered their greatest critical and commercial success to date. The Village Voice claimed "Glow's subtle attractions prove as memorable as a perfect summer dusk," while Interview praised Karen's "pristine melodies, poetic verse, and lulling voice." The album boasted a top 20 AAA hit with "Bright As Yellow," and tracks were featured on Party of Five, and the soundtrack to the feature film Empire Records. In addition, Don and Karen enjoyed some memorable turns as guest musicians over the years, having worked with such artists as Joni Mitchell, Natalie Merchant and John Hiatt. After the release of Glow the band toured with Natalie Merchant, Emmylou Harris, the Catchers, 16 Horsepower, and others throughout the U.S. and Canada.
