fingers to hearts


Appalachian Trance Metal


Inspired by the Fugates of Troublesome Creek, Smurfs, and colloidal silver overuse, I am on a lifelong mission to turn a sizeable swatch of my skin blue. Blue is the color of the sky, water, the throat chakra, and is also known as the color of desperation.

Appalachian Trance Metal is my mind, body, and soul.

It’s imperfect memory.

It’s ghost harmonics: the essential character of the Appalachian mountains, filtered through particular life experience.

It’s Trance unforgetting.

It’s Metal precision.

Thank you for listening.
