EEP

My latest release entitled ‘EEP’ is a culmination of the various techniques and styles that I have used in the past to manifest my narrative method of composition.

The EP is a fusion of electronic and acoustic textures blended into an instrumental landscape that extends seamlessly from a dark metropolis to the pastoral hinterlands. At its core the album embodies the human struggle for self actualization by creative and romantic means.

The main thing I wanted to explore with this EP is having a constant note (E) droning throughout an eclectic collection of songs. Like many of my previous releases, many of the collaborations were done over the internet with friends in Chicago, Boston, and New York City.

’EEP’ features the talents of Mike Walker (Nature’s Neighbor), Knyves Escobar, Jed Lingat (Rosco the Wolf), Perry Cowdery (Fatkid), Radhika Bhatt, and Phil Schoof. Mastered by Seth Engel (Lifted Bells, Coaster, Options) at Pallet Sound in Chicago, IL.

The 9-track EP is available for pre-order on Bandcamp until it’s release on Friday, September 13.

Album: Trying Times

I’ve been working on this project for the past year and I’m sharing it with all of you now on my Bandcamp. It’s called Trying Times, and for obvious reasons. Without getting into detail, many of these songs are responses to personal challenges. Some are inexplicit reactions to the political and social issues that we have witnessed since I began producing it in August of 2016.

I find it difficult to adequately express what this collection of songs means to me because for so long it has felt like a parasite that I have been unable to remove from my body, and it doesn’t feel the same as it did when I began. I release it now as a manifestation of the hope I have for people to heal, and to find creative ways of coping with fear. I feel very fortunate to have collaborated with so many friends on this album, and grateful for everything that I have learned along the way. I hope you enjoy.
