When the world's on fire and the seeds of division are sown throughout the land, music and ceremony have always held a sacred space for healing and renewal. Room Enough, Time Enough, only the second full-length solo record from singer-lyricist & folk activist David Huckfelt of The Pines, is a record about restoring balance: space and attention, peace and equality, redeeming the marginalized, and remembering the forgotten. It's a new expression of the ancient ritual and power of songs to weave a web of resilience and protection over our land, our loves, and our resistance, from a songwriter whose new solo endeavor is a present-moment plea for connection and compassion.

“The phrase ‘Room Enough, Time Enough’ comes from a name the Navajo used to describe their ancestral homeland in northern Arizona and New Mexico, not far from where the record was made”, Huckfelt says. “It’s one of the most breathtaking and beautiful places in the country, where a person can hear themselves not-think, a place where every mesa and every rock is a god with a name and power. We are fortunate to even be allowed to pass through this land. Places like this are a paradox of vulnerability and resilience, and the geography of the desert is where and how this record was born.” Featuring a collection of new original material seamlessly entwined with folk songs from deep in the American soil, “Room Enough, Time Enough” draws inspiration from such powerful protest records as Johnny Cash’s “Bitter Tears” and Floyd Red Crow Westerman’s “Custer Died For Your Sins”; records that open a trap door to a different version of America, and speak out against oppression while holding fast to beauty for beauty’s sake.
