pronounced soul - ee - ay
Music addict, guitarist, and insane person.

An accurate description if I do say so myself. This EP happened right after I made 'Hide'. I was kind of on a roll when it came to recording, so I kept on recording the songs. Some of the songs were really interesting to make.

For this EP, I dug up a couple of songs that I didn't know as well, or hadn't played in a long time. I arranged quite a lot of them completely differently to the originals. 'Red Waltz' was originally not a waltz, but I messed around. I only had the lyrics to 'Life Was Never Fair', and I had forgotten the melody, so I made one up on the spot in the recording session. That was fun.

Also, I made a couple of very experimental instrumental pieces. I wrote '[downpour]' purely based on the idea of creating a musical piece which represented a storm. In these pieces I experimented with layering and distortion. Because I only have a microphone, the distorted guitar is actually a recording of my acoustic that was turned up really loud.

Pronounced serves three purposes. To provide a bite-sized companion to 'Hide', that contrasts the supremely happy sound of that album with a more melancholy sound. To document of some of my crazier experiments when recording. And the most important purpose of them all, to make sure people can pronounce Soliet properly. SOUL - EE - AY! It's French!

Enjoy the music (and the pronunciation lesson),
