about

“poised and mysterious and it contemplates oblivion” The New York Times

“Few releases in 2018 will possess the color and musical consideration that makes In Silver Halides a compelling listen and it seems to open more possibilities for this musical project going forward from here.” No Depression

“an album rife with beautiful soft music tip-toeing between orchestral prog rock and buttery acoustic/classicism, resulting in subtle, elegant sonority. 'In Silver Halides' projects lush excellence” SeattlePI.com

"one of the world’s most criminally underrated singer/songwriters." The Revue

“weighty and wonderful” GoldFlakePaint

"I look forward to listening to this until I'm blue in the face.” Paste Magazine

“like and ocean at night, cold and serene” Surviving The Golden Age

"one of 2018’s must hear under the radar artists." Glide Magazine

Track Name: We Come Right
We Come Right

Under this
Let it all come wrong
Buried well
It goes on, it goes on
Lie as you want
Make a furnace strong
Howl all you want
Baby arms

Lucky one,
Soon to be no more,
How many ways
Have I lured you on
Waited all night
For the day to come
You alone
I alone
We come right
We come right

Under branches
Of pitch and pine
Sap your strength
Didn’t miss this time
Carried your voice
Over deep ravines
Soaked your love
In gasoline
You alone
I alone
We come right
We come right
Track Name: Broken Wing
Broken Wing

The human sounds
We make come close
To falling out
Our mouths
No more words
Your breathing slowed
Losing you
To the sound

Cool as you want
Tall as you please
Be my broken wing
Be my broken wing
Pulled out my heart
For all to see
Be my broken wing
Be my broken wing

Nights so long
I needed all to be strong
Waded in to the thoes
Out to the breach
Kept it out of our reach
Stole what hope could grow

Cool as you want
Tall as you please
Be my broken wing
Be my broken wing
Pulled out my heart
For all to see
Be my broken wing
Be my broken wing
Track Name: Come On Chaos
Come On Chaos

Led to the steps
On lion’s breath
I’ve never seen your
Blood so clear
It’s been a ride
Move like a sea
Unsteady feet, holding
Fast to memory
Gone with the tide

Silence follows silence
Coming up out of the well
Silence won’t be silent
Come on chaos, give me hell
You’re at my side
Leave me, I’ll decide

Fall came in waves
Sun-starved days
Melted into open roads
Snaking away
For this I’d give
Myself away
Turn me to another course
One I can claim

Silence follows silence
Coming up out of the well
Silence won’t be silent
Come on chaos, give me hell
You’re at my side
Wake up lazy eyes
Track Name: Parasite
Parasite

At once the lights
All changed
Abandoned the war
Back to orphans again
No medals, no more
My wishes came out of your mouth
My buttons came out of your bank account

When I looked you up
You were down on your luck
When I came to you, crawling
Could I be your parasite
Never too soon
To get back to you
Now I come to you crawling
Could I be your parasite

We talked about the moon
All it’s disguise
The roof wet with dew
Held on tight
Your parents never let on
They heard our feet on the
Asphalt

When I looked you up
You were down on your luck
When I came to you, crawling
Could I be your parasite
Never too soon
To get back to you
Then I came to you crawling
Could I be your parasite
Track Name: Chambers In The Canopy
Chambers In The Canopy

Eyes are playing tricks on me
See figures in the branches
Window frame, amphibian,
Feathers underneath my skin
Nerves are shredded endlessly
I cannot trust the shadows
Sound of every turning leaf
Adding to the clamour

Perfect day reflected on my wall
I try to trace it
All I got was paint under my nails
And bleeding fingers
Echoes of the birds are building
Chambers in the canopy
Catching flies and hammering
Our teeth together endlessly

All I ever wanted was to be your
Ready fire escape
Holding fast against your walls
No one falls, I know my place
All the night I walked the streets of
Distant towns I’ve never been
Wrote my name on every sign
Show you the way back to me

Holding on, forgotten days
I should have read the warning signs
Throw your mattress out the window
Be my safety net this time

All the night I walked the streets of
Distant towns I’ve never been
Wrote my name on every sign
Show you the way back to me
All I ever wanted was to be your
Ready fire escape
Holding fast against your walls
No one falls, I know my place
Track Name: Gold Leaf & Amethyst
Gold Leaf & Amethyst

She says ‘you’re taking away
All of the comfort of strangers and
I know you’re not scared.
I know you’re not scared.’
And on a night like no other
The street lights glisten and shudder
They show you they’re not scared
Of what may be out there

Some day, look back on this
Gold leaf and amethyst
Long for the days you never thought you’d miss

She’s staring out to the sea
To all the places she could be
Far from the hum drum
The bright lights of London
She says ‘show me the money,
I need to feel some kind of freedom,
I need to feel something.
I need to feel something.

Some day, look back on this
Gold leaf and amethyst
Long for the days you never thought you’d miss

You shiver and shake
It always ends this way
Go sell all your jewellery and
Get on the train
Track Name: Connecting The Fireflies
Connecting The Fireflies

Straight up for the race
Parting the waves
Amnesty on your mind
Soldier on
Without your meals
Cornered a final thorn
Stayed too long
For any address
Calico wrapped round your neck
Hands at your heels
Feeling the faults
Bleached into the boardwalk

Lie still my starry eyes
Connecting the fireflies

Blinded by the page
Caught by the wind
Up to my shins in the silt
Standing still
Call it a day
All in a days work

Lie still my starry eyes
Connecting the fireflies
All eyes on you tonight
Connecting the fireflies
Track Name: Miracle Child
Miracle Child

Should I go on again today
We tear ourselves from the eyes
Of the falling frame
Should I praise all the chaos we made
Didn’t pull on your tail just to
See if it would come away

Watching the waves that break
Grow bigger by the day
At least it always seems that way

Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child
Some put a mark on you I knew you wouldn’t mind
Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child
All of your failings couldn’t fail you if they tried

You heard not a sound
All the whole night through as they
Dug a whole right under you
Searching the fibres and wires
Knitted in the vines
Catching most all of the time

Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child
Some put a mark on you I knew you wouldn’t mind
Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child
All of your failings couldn’t fail you if they tried

Watching the waves that break
Grow bigger by the day
At least it always seems that way
Track Name: Perfect Silence
Perfect Silence

Pulled those bridges down
Made a perfect silence
Voices of unknown
Start to grip my mind
Holding to the ropes for
Another round of
Weightless and hopeless
Taking my pulse again

Sealed into a dream
No escape from the darkness
The torment never sleeps
Shake my cage all the night
Don’t know what is real
What is trust without waking
I must be done here
I can no longer sleep

Pulled those mirrors down
It’s the staring eyes that
Hold me in their sights
Every time I try
To turn this ship around
Against the swell
Don’t fight it
Go where the wind goes
Throw off the holding ropes

Slow down some, it won’t get
Fixed til it falls apart
Now you’re on your own
Take courage in a new start
Cos no-one knows you like I do
It’s the little things
That hold us all together
When the cracks start appearing

I could be made to stay
If I knew what kept me
I must be leaving
Couldn’t explain a thing
