Music for Forward Operating Bases (2008)

A collage of rock, folk, and hip-hop songs, with classical elements. An album about war. An experiment by a neophyte musician. A godawful mess. Something for everyone. Something to offend everyone.

BIOGRAPHY

Been making music for almost two years now -- something I didn't know I could do until GarageBand came with my new computer. Now it's the thing I love doing. The computer came with me to Iraq, and I ordered a cheap keyboard and a USB mic online to do this project. This is the first time I've recorded tracks with vocals.

BAND MEMBERS
Seth Fortin -- keyboards, vocals, programming Joshua Maxwell -- rustic violin on "Folk Song For The End Of Time" Luke Giannini -- guitar on "Cancer" Birds -- birdsong on "Folk Song For The End Of Time"
