These songs were recorded by 1 dude in a bedroom with 1 microphone (a beat-up SM58) over the course of 2 years with the help of 16 amazing musicians.
Two years is a long time for 5 songs. But in order to get them to sound the way they do with the resources we had, two years is what it took. And this album was a full-time job, with many weeks taking 60-70 hours of (unpaid) work.
Download this music, let it grow on you, pass it along. There are a ton of hidden sounds that only reveal themselves after multiple listens. We'd love for you to experience them.
