SILENT LIGHT (2017)
Written after a rather long 3-year hiatus, I put together a collection of songs written in my home studio after moving back from Michigan.
A very synth-heavy record influenced by my love for both Depeche Mode and Sparklehorse. Another break-up record of sorts as well, but contains a couple of my favorite moments in the history of making records.
Written around the time I was heavily involved in the DIY music scene, helped foster the CLLCT collective, and wanted to play more live shows. Thematically, it was about disconnection through technology but finding comfort in those around me.
A collection or songs that I've written over the years from about 2002 - 2009 that I'm proud of. Features tracks from all bands and monikers such as Friend of a Friend, Automatic Pilot, and James Eric.
