Taiga - Stone Goddess


Taigá is the psychedelic / prog rock project of musician and songwriter Jonathan Spruance of Seattle, WA. Drawing on influences ranging from 60s Swedish psychedelia and classical sitar music to early 90s indie rock and jazz-tinged classic rock, the music embodies a rich tonal tapestry that bubbles, flows, melts, and congeals into one cohesive whole.
