The Tinder Box Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Humbled by their south-eastern South Dakota roots, The Tinder Box (Chad Konrad, Dominic Osterloh, & Jon Wallner) offer a uniquely cohesive blend of Folk, Blues, & Bluegrass. With their February 2011 release of their debut EP These Winds (recorded at Blacklodge Recording in Eudora, KS), The Tinder Box has emerged as a three-member band with the driving force of most full-bands. ... more

Track Name: The Window
Little baby and his mother
cradled by the rockin' chair
gazing out towards the window
where the only light is shone,

Look up, look up
to the morning
with all her truths to bare.

Modern man with his reason
shaded by the old wild oak
when winter with her fall has beckoned
oh where shall you make your bed?

Look up, look up
to the morning
with all her truths to bare

Oh, boy how you left your mother to blame.
Track Name: Beyond the Night
Beyond the night she calls for me
"Behold the eye, the enemy,
the obvious of apathy.
Yet we all know.

A crying babe,
a bastard child,
a breath cut short of empathy.
Yet we all know.

So spare us your time.
We don't wanna be alone.

The Dead have gone to celebrate
in mighty kingdoms of once great
where honesty holds reverence.
Where we dare not go.

'cause what remains is what was lost,
when souls have left and time has crossed
where modern science can't be found.
Where no one knows.

So spare us your time.
We don't wanna be alone."
