Stockton Helbing

Swimming In Place

2017-03-06

Another Solid Album by these guys. I really love the sounds these guys produce, especially after hearing some of the story behind the writing on these tracks. In doing some research Stockton Helbing wrote quite a few of these compositions from life experiences. But, really one thing which stood out to me, was when Stockton said "I wanted to push myself to grow as a musician and composer." The fact that he is always trying to get better, is a true testament to how their music continues to evolve, and to push themselves towards a direction of improvement and exploration. Loved it, check out tracks 1, 4, and 5 which were my favorites.
