about

Solace was recorded throughout 2017 starting on a cold and rainy day in March and finishing as winter was setting in the following November. Previous works of John Creasy have hinted at a more ambient and experimental nature, such as The Noise Outside, Beginning and Emmanuel. Solace is John's creation of meditative, instrumental songs that expose the listener to multiple layers of flowing guitars and synthesizers on some tracks and very simple acoustic guitar on others. Most of the songs were improvised compositions that capture a moment or a day with a guitar and the Nord piano. Many of the songs also capture what was going on outside of the "Backroom"where This Side of Eve records. As part of these songs are also the rain, crickets, wind and sounds of a creaky house with children and dogs. Special thanks to Ian White for contributions on the drums.
