"I wrote 'Room with a view' back in 2010 or possibly 2011. I played guitar and the song had lyrics and I used to sing it with three friends of mine in some sort of canon. Never recorded it though, until summer 2020, when I tried it out in an instrumental version in my studio.
Kat Delitto (Lead guitar), Krista Marie Setera (ukulele, vocals), Ben Bonadies (Bass) and Matt Wilson (Drums) came together musically to create songs that are both technically challenging and full of emotion. Lyrics are deeply personal, spanning from romantic disasters to emotional struggles and an inside rage that seems to only dissipate thanks to the high-gained riffs and superb drum playing.
In his debut EP, N4November invites us all to feel the world with him. The good, the bad, the very unlikely and the somewhat possible. "I don't know how to live in this world of so much hate", he sings in the title track. None of us do, Alex. But we keep trying, and songs like these helps.
"I wrote this song back in the spring after a conversation with a friend of mine. I realized that this person didn't know how loved they were, and I didn't quite have the words at the moment to convey that. I went home and wrote this song the next morning.

I Have Seen It, I Do Not Fear It starts of as a powerful heavy rock album and transforms into something completely different, as we follow Catherine Elms' emotional journey. She masterfully constructs a cinematic way to guide us through it in an original musical and lyrical sense. We experience anger, sadness, happiness and hope throughout is fourteen tracks, as we identify ourselves with its anecdotes and emotions.
I do walk around with an ear-to-ear grin most days, believe that life is a gift and that I am the luckiest SOB on the planet -- all of that -- but I do have a bee in my bonnet (actually a couple). Charlie Edwards aka I've Tried Sleeping
The idea for "Take A Dive" was born through sea shanties of the 1920's and their narrative approach to music and various stories of Irish immigrants that had to work for the mob to make a living.
"The day I wrote the song, I was going through a tough breakup, was taking a break from school, and my best friend and I had just gotten into an argument. I felt like all outlets of social connection that I had were gone, and I truly didn't know what to do." Jaxyn Lethe
