Coming to terms with mortality in the final moments of regret, the new dark folk single “Lullaby” from evocative songwriter Sheri Streeter takes on the perspective of God as a parent putting a reluctant child to bed. A vulnerable narrative, the song was written in illness and pandemic and was then recorded as Streeter’s father passed away.

Drawing from social philosophy and comparative religion as well as their experience as a caregiver, this Southern Gothic story was inspired by a confrontational interview with Anton LaVey during which he was asked if he was afraid to die. Oscillating between a delicate hush and a stern wail, Streeter’s vocals and acoustic fingerstyle are accompanied by mournful, ambient swells along with drums and bass provided by producer Dave Chale, rounding out a sweetly tender funeral march towards one’s final resting place.

“Lullaby” follows the release of their 2022 debut full-length That Shadow Too Am I.



Be still, child
Close your eyes
Lay your head on me
Rest awhile
Sleep tonight
The world won't cease to be

Yes, there's so much more to do
But life will go on
With or without you

Broken bough
Fallen down
You're no longer a kid
So, don't cry now
And hit the ground
Afraid of what you'll miss

Yes, there's so much more to do
But life will go on
With or without you
