Jonathan Fraser – Heaven is at a Distance (2020) [Mix, Master]

October 24, 2020

Devastatingly beautiful album right here. Written and Recorded by Jonathan Fraser himself, except for the Bass which I played and recorded. This album expands on the sounds Jonathan explored in Stendhal and takes it to new places. More blastbeats, more acoustic guitars, more atmosphere, and more textures.
 

FFO: Deafheaven, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, anything crusty and blackened.

 

Jonathan Fraser – A Mother’s Love So Grand (2018) [Mix, Master]

October 12, 2018

Another collaboration between Jonathan and myself. As someone who has also lost a parent to cancer I really felt that this was a special piece to work on and when Jonathan approached me about it I was on board immediately. I won’t say any more and instead will let Jonathan explain the meaning in his own words.
 

On May 3rd, I lost my mother, Terri Fraser, to glioblastoma. On August 11th, my family, friends, and I celebrated her life and made peace with her passing. At that ceremony, I played a new song that was dedicated to her and what she meant to me. This is that song. I included a portion of my memorial speech near the end.

Any if all purchases will go towards an endowed fund in my mothers name for glioblastoma research.

Jonathan Fraser – Stendhal: Tragedy of the Journeyman (2018) [Mix, Master]

March 9, 2018

Written and Recorded by Jonathan Fraser himself, except for the Bass which I played and recorded. Jonathan is uber talented and creative, and this album is a testament to that. Simply magnificent songwriting and composition, amazing sense of melody, and somehow he keeps it cohesive when bouncing around between genres mid-song. This album has a little bit of everything, from post-rock to blackened gazeyness to blues shuffles. Overall I find it highly cinematic and atmospheric. It was a ton of fun to work on and I hope I did the music justice. Highly recommend checking this album out.
 

FFO: Deafheaven, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, emotions, the Blues
