about

" 'Odes' was recorded over the period of a year in Akron, Ohio, while I was living there. The impact of losing Letha didn’t fully hit me until I was away from North Carolina, and I had to find ways of channeling my feelings so that I wouldn’t become completely overwhelmed. I found that recording these simple, meditative pieces was a far more effective and succinct way of dealing with the loss than attempting to write any kind of lyric. They were mostly recorded on a partially working 4 track, though some were recorded on a karaoke machine that had very good reverb. "
- Dan Melchior


" 'Odes' is unvarnished and earnest, but also meticulously composed, offering powerful emotion and immersive texture. It is a rare and intimate gift. "
- Jordan Lawrence, Indy Week

"These nine ramshackle, loose instrumental pieces are personal, incomplete, and like having someone entrust you with private stories in song form."
- Mason Jones, Dusted

"A delicate and very personal recording from a guy whose moves are more often cut from much brasher cloth."
- Byron Coley, The Wire

"Recorded as if it was made under candlelight, Odes is stripped down to the bare essentials and feels like it was torn from a sonic journal."
- Tabs Out

" 'Odes' is a testament to the literally indescribable power music holds and the depth of feeling it can imbue. It’s repetitive. It’s meditative. It’s mournful. It’s truly remarkable."
- Auxiliary Out
