"On a Good Day"

by Joanna Newsom

This song is from a concert we performed at Pale Horse Sound in Salt Lake City in September of 2018. The concert was staged in-the-round, so we performed sitting directly across from one other with the audience surrounding us on all sides. It was a rare treat for us - we hope you enjoy it!

"This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" by Talking Heads

Our arrangement of: "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" by Talking Heads. Recorded live on the porch of the tiny cabin at BAD RAP dog rescue. Featuring: adorable cameos by the rescue dogs, Christmas lights, and crickets singing. If you're thinking about adopting a dog, check out our friends at badrap.org!

"Til I Kissed You" by The Everly Brothers

What if we put on a tiny-themed concert? With tiny bouncers guarding the door. And tiny beverages. And tiny donuts and popcorn too. Well, we did it! Live from The World's Smallest Post Service in Berkeley, CA.

"All the Pretty Little Horses"

An original arrangement of a traditional lullaby.

"Hold On"

A ballad from the great gravel-voiced pirate Tom Waits.

"River"

Joni Mitchell's "River" - performed at The Chapel of Our Lady Restoration in Cold Spring, NY, during Sonya Cotton's 2010 Red River Tour.

"Higher Than a Hawk"

Sung with barrel-chested bravado in the 1953 movie musical Calamity Jane, we've reworked it here into a "Tiny Home-style" arrangement.

ABOUT US

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Tiny Home is Sonya Cotton and Gabe Dominguez. Sonya and Gabe have been singing together nearly since the day they met, in August 2007. 

Their repertoire spans a wide variety of genres, including original and traditional folk songs, musical theater classics, jazz standards, and composers from Tom Waits to Townes Van Zandt.  They’ve recorded two albums: a self-titled collection of  ballads released in 2011, and a Christmas album entitled “Christmas Carols for Our Mothers,” released in 2009, both of which can be heard here.

 

Both Gabe and Sonya are driven, personally and musically, by a deep love for wild places and creatures. They have completed three week-long music/walking tours up the California coast performing tiny concerts in small towns along the way, carrying their guitar on their back.  Their future vision includes a train tour of the Pacific Northwest and a tour by canoe down the Delaware River.

The original Tiny Home, San Francisco, 2007

The Story of the Name . . .

(A Love Story)

When Sonya first met Gabe back in August of 2007, she discovered to her surprise that Gabe lived in a blue 8’ x 9’ camping tent, precariously positioned high atop the roof of a Latino musician’s collective in San Francisco’s Mission District. Though the tent flapped and billowed in the background, Sonya was unflappable, and to Gabe’s delight, Sonya embraced both the tent, and the tent’s owner with an open heart.

 

Months passed, and many hours were happily spent in the little tent that was perched two stories above the city sidewalk. 

 

One day when the two were sitting cross-legged on the salvaged U-haul moving blanket which acted as the comforter on Gabe’s twin bed, they observed that for their cramped quarters, they felt incredibly comfortable. They reflected to their amusement that their love for one another seemed to transform a $50 tent bought off of Ebay into a magical little world that was all their own; a safe and beautiful haven separate from - almost floating above - the big world below.  It was around this time that Sonya began fondly calling the tent: “Tiny Home,” and even wrote a song commemorating the mini nylon habitat: “The magic of your tiny home, the walls that shake and billow / A fortress nearly twice as strong as any one of wood or stone!”

 

As time went by and the rooftop tent was packed away and Gabe and Sonya found themselves in other homes (both tiny and big,) the two noticed in the midst of their changing surroundings (as many other lovers have gleefully also noticed since time immemorial,) that wherever they went in each other’s company, they created between them a tiny home unto themselves: a safe space of coziness, magic, and wonder - no tent necessary.

 

When considering what to name the musical duo that could musically conjure that same space of coziness, magic and wonder, there was no question of what that name should be: Tiny Home.
