My second solo LP – Beside Myself – is officially out in the world today courtesy of US based label, Students of Decay. I am so grateful for the support of SOD / Alex Cobb for taking this project on and for the ongoing support of the folks at Morr Music. I am also extremely grateful to my dear friends and collaborators whose support I am indebted to for this record (and much more!); James Rushford, Joerg Hiller, Joe Talia, Francis Plagne and my partner Oren Ambarchi.
The beautiful cover for this release is a painting titled ‘lace‘ by Manitoba, Canada based painter Melanie Rocan. This painting and much more of Melanie’s work can be seen on her website here. Huge thanks to Melanie for letting me use this wonderful and evocative painting, which matched the atmosphere of this album so well.
The album is available on LP / digital through Forced Exposure (US), Anost (EU), Boomkat (UK) and many more distros and shops worldwide.
A digital version of the LP is available on my Bandcamp here.
