Take Me Down

This Side of Eve

Tracks 1, 2 and 5 Recording in Nashville, TN. with an amazing team of musicians. Special thanks to Jeremy Casella for production and orchestrating the right people to be in the room to make these songs happen as they did. Thanks also to Will Sayles, Kenny Hutson and Lucas Morton for their hard work and exquisite care in helping craft these arrangements.

Tracks 3 and 4 recorded in "the back room" of the Creasy house. Special thanks to Téah, Micah and Lyle for being as quiet as kids can be, especially when recording vocals. Thanks to Ian White for coming back into our lives for a short time to record the drums, like the old days. Chris and Libby Hilf, as always, performed their parts with grace and ease.

Special thanks also to Lisa, Lauren, Amber and Megan for your encouragement and for making that weekend at Nowhere Farm possible that got This Side of Eve back to the craft of songwriting.

Solace

This Side of Eve

Solace was recorded throughout 2017 starting on a cold and rainy day in March and finishing as winter was setting in the following November. Previous works of John Creasy have hinted at a more ambient and experimental nature, such as The Noise Outside, Beginning and Emmanuel. Solace is John's creation of meditative, instrumental songs that expose the listener to multiple layers of flowing guitars and synthesizers on some tracks and very simple acoustic guitar on others. Most of the songs were improvised compositions that capture a moment or a day with a guitar and the Nord piano. Many of the songs also capture what was going on outside of the "Backroom"where This Side of Eve records. As part of these songs are also the rain, crickets, wind and sounds of a creaky house with children and dogs. Special thanks to Ian White for contributions on the drums.
