Bandcamp release HERE

“This album collects some of my earliest works for solo acoustic guitar written between 2005 and 2007. In the beginning of 2014, I was given a wonderful opportunity to do a residency at Harrison House Music & Arts in Joshua Tree. Leading up to my stay there, I decided to go back and revisit these songs so that I could record them in that beautiful room you see in the cover photo. I wrote a few new pieces in the same spirit during the visit that found their way onto the album as well.

The album title is inspired by Erik Satie’s concept of “musique d’ameublement” (furnishing music), which is background music originally intended to be played by live performers. I love the idea that music/sound can be engaged on many different levels, and in many different contexts. My hope is that these tunes can similarly slide between spaces and be listened to in multiple settings over time. A special thanks goes to the gracious Eva Soltes for generously hosting me at the Harrison House. It was an incredible setting to create music. I also want to thank those in my life that have encouraged me to keep this particular music alive.Hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!”

From Evan: “Coiling” is made up of recordings from sessions that took place throughout the past couple of years.  It’s a taste of what I’ve been up to and what to expect from my next ‘proper’ LP that should be coming out sometime in 2015.  Please enjoy and thanks for your support.
