When S. J. met author Catherynne M. Valente in 2006, they had no idea what fond collaborators they would soon become. For the Girl in the Garden is S. J.'s first book soundtrack, and the first of many song collections inspired by Valente's work. Currently, S. J. has a very few copies of this limited edition album left, and your best bet is to either download it or pick up a copy at one of her shows. As soon as the last few copies are gone, S. J. plans to reprint this disc as part of a double album with its sister, Solace & Sorrow. Both of these albums feature songs inspired by Valente's two novels, The Orphan's Tales: in the Night Garden and The Orphan's Tales: in the Cities of Coin & Spice, interspersed with Sooj's own remarkable readings from the Tales. You can read all about the book here.
