Into It. Over It.
For years I had played, written, recorded and performed in bands. The Progress, Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start, Map The Growth, Stay Ahead Of The Weather and Damiera have been a few.
From September 2007 to September 2008, I wrote (and recorded) one song each week for an entire year. This project (which was called 52 Weeks) was available online weekly during that year. Since it’s completion, Chris at No Sleep Records approached me about releasing the record. We remixed it, mastered it and (with the help of Brian Mietz) put together an amazing layout. The 2xCD was released on June 23rd, 2009.
I’ve since relocated to Chicago. Written twelve songs documenting anecdotes an travels I’ve had in Twelve Towns. These songs will be released over a series of split 7″ records during 2010/2011.
I’ve most recently recorded 5 new songs which were released on a split LP with my best friend KOJI. These 5 songs are about 5 stories taking place in 5 Chicago neighborhoods.
2011 will bring a new full length LP on No Sleep Records.
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are an atmospheric emo / indie rock band from Willimantic, CT. The band was formed in 2009 and has undergone several lineup changes since its inception. TWIABP’s now 8 piece lineup writes the songs collaboratively and often on-the-spot with vocal duties shared by 4 members. The band’s sound is easily compared to second wave post-emo indie rock bands of the late 90s and early 2000s and their atmospheric moments are often tagged as “post-rock.” The band creates their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet.
