As working writer, I am always searching for music that will take me to places that spark new creativity and deep integrity in my own work as I listen. For music to be this good, this inventive, I set my work aside and just listen. Bravo Night Sea.
This release grew organically from an afternoon jam session at Johan's house in Berkeley, CA in June 2016. The basis for Loqui was recorded that day. Inspired by the energy of our first session, we went on to record and produce the rest of the EP by meeting on weekends and evenings to work around the schedule of our full-time jobs. Solis was the last track to take shape, and illustrates all of what we learn in the process of working together, as well as the close friendship that has developed between us.
This self-titled EP is a first attempt at taking the listener on a reflective journey. We are incredibly excited to continue this adventure through new releases and live performances in 2017.
