Daughter Of Swords Performs ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ & Shares ‘What Wondrous Love Is This?’ Cover


Daughter Of Swords (Mountain Man‘s Alexandra Sauser-Monnig) appears in the latest edition of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series. Daughter Of Swords also shared a cover of the traditional hymn, “What Wondrous Love Is This?”

Recorded in February before shelter-in-place orders were announced in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the Tiny Desk session featured Sauser-Monnig accompanied by guitarist/keyboardist Maia Friedman (Dirty Projectors), bassist Alex Bingham (Hiss Golden Messenger) and drummer Joe Westerlund (Mandolin Orange, Megafaun). The set was made up of songs from the 2019 Daughter Of Swords album, Dawnbreaker, “Long Leaf Pine” and “Shining Woman” and the 2020 Jeff Tweedy-produced single, “Prairie Winter Wasteland.” Watch here:

Sauser-Monnig also announced the launch of Daughter Of Swords’ Patreon.
