PHOURIST (for-rist) & THE PHOTONS began as Nick Hill's solo project (known then only as PHOURIST). After a few solo records- "Terrestrial Daydream" and "Breathe Deep" (highly textured, cinematic records), Hill became restless for a larger sound. He is quoted as saying, "Having only one guy to play all the parts is pretty limiting; especially if you can hear so much more in your head! I was also getting tired of being the guy who played pretty music... I love pretty music but I felt like I had more to give... kinda wanted to kick in some teeth." With an arsenal of songs that had no proper outlet, Hill eventually recruited Scott Boice (drums), Justin Perez (bass), Andrew Critchelow (guitar/texture). The group presents a highly dynamic, formidable and seemingly uninhibited rhythm section.
The quartet's LP, "In Infinite Indigo," is a theatrical, melodic, stripped-down affair that continues to experiment with neo-classical themes in an album rock paradigm. "In Infinite Indigo" is available now on sonaBLAST! Records.
