Notes About the Release
Naomi Lewis’s 1975 debut Cottage Songs features twelve original songs inspired by family, friends, God, and nature. Composed primarily in a small cottage in the mountains of central Utah, these acoustic recordings were built around Naomi’s plaintive guitar and vocals. Her lyrics spill out as small diary entries, written as a gift for one friend or another.

Lewis had 1,000 copies of Cottage Songs pressed for her own Cottage Records label in 1975. Local artist Stefanie Clark contributed a painting of Lewis’ cottage for the album’s cover, which was meant to be printed in color. After discovering how costly that would have been, Lewis printed a small drawing of the cottage in black-and-white, which lended a textural woodcut print quality to the album. “It turned out to be a positive experience, people loved it,” Lewis said. “Up until this point I had been recording cassette tapes for my friends, which was a laborious process. Cottage Songs kind of solved that problem like, ‘Here, have an album.’”
