A Hand Holding the Matchbook, by Builder & the Banshee:

With rocking folk songs like “Wires” and “Tangled” to quiet ballads about lost loved ones (“Wild” and “Enough”), A Hand Holding the Matchbook is a thoughtful collection of original acoustic music out of Vancouver Island, B.C. by Builder & the Banshee.

Woodworker-guitarist Mike “Builder” Harding and singer-songwriter Laura “Banshee” Kelsey write a unique blend of soulful folk rock that has hints of metal and blues. They’ve played live around the province and are already working on their second album.


Hey there, barefoot

Never around

Calling you

I’m always here for you


Freeway driving never so free

Sunny days in June

What we do for food

To feed our moods


Don’t touch the wires

Just watch the show

Don’t question anything

You are not supposed to know


Mountains cloaked

In smoke and our steel

Crying, “Fools!

“We are your friends, too!”


Snapping strings and energy fields

Absorbing truth

Siphoning all souls through

all souls through


Don’t touch the wires

Just watch the show

Don’t question anything

You are not supposed to know


Just keep your head down

Or you’ll alert the patrol

Shield your eyes from

Blinding lights of control
