A few years ago John Solomon walked away from music. After a long struggle with addiction and a brief stint in jail he broke up his critically acclaimed band Friends Like These and moved to a small town in Wisconsin. And supposedly that was that.
Even though Solomon left music, music never left him. After a long hiatus, he called some friends to come to Wisconsin and demo up a new album….
Solomon and company have already started to reclaim their spot in music with favorable reviews from critics all over that remember Solomon and company from Friends Like These.
A re-energized Solomon has assembled a band worth taking note of now.
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“Fragile, daydreaming harmonies. Swirling synths that spin and spin until they fall down dizzy. Steady-galloping drums that coolly pass you by. These Midwestern boys have wrapped them all up into rip-your-heart out ballads about getting older but not necessarily happier – songs that capture the old joy of classic records and do-nothing days, and the ache of knowing they’re mostly gone. Yes, there’s a good kind of sadness, and this is what it sounds like.” -Melissa Maerz, Rolling Stone Magazine
