In the words of Samuel himself “Music, art for that matter has the power to heal. It is an inner voice, a reservoir of creativity that is inexhaustible. Being musical is not about the skill or having extraordinary technical abilities, it is about having an intimate relationship to that urge within everyone to create. Being artistic is a natural state of being. It is taking life itself and giving back to it – a harmony. Earth Heart Hum was born once this realization began to feed everything I created. Every art piece, every song, every poem came from this emanating instinct to create and trust that what comes is a sincere expression of what need be expressed.” Pick up your copy of Earth Heart Hum on January 30th here!

Cody had the opportunity to head up to the Peak Performance Project in August 2015 to help record some really great bands alongside the amazingly talented Shawn Cole (Dr.Boss). One of the songs they recorded was written collaboratively by Chersea and Cowpuncher, and it actually placed second in the songwriting competition! Check it out!

We’re really proud of this EP! Produced, engineered and mixed by Cody of Fiend Recordings, “One Year Long” by ursidae is the musical equivalent of floating in a lunar Sea of Tranquility; no matter how chaotic the cosmic forces are that surround my metaphorical space-dinghy.. Carolyn’s voice cuts through the ether, anchoring everything in place. A true labor of love, in the most classic sense of the phrase..please, have a listen! Our personal favourite is “Elle”.

Almost 3 years in the making, Ben Rowley‘s “Waveracer” is an amalgamation of heartfelt, soul-searching introspection and balls-to-the-wall, non-apologetic, psychedelic seduction. Ben’s lyrical craftsmanship and impeccable musical ability gives this album a truly authentic and personal touch, whilst also pushing the boundaries on what pop-sensible songwriting can encompass. Recorded in multiple studios, with a multitude of different gear and musical toys, Ben and Cody, along with lots of other Fiend friends, spent countless hours toiling away on this musical journey. Please take some time and enjoy the magic that is “Waveracer”.
