Given a little bit of space and time, I’ve come to better understand the value of real and complete rest, and how some time away, with creative energies flicked off, allow for fresh perspective.
Like everyone else, I’ve spent the last several weeks hunkered down in my house, refining my relationship to boredom and probably eating too much. I’ve locked myself into a self-imposed rigid routine of remote work, family, exercise and rest, intended to keep my brain occupied and averted from the news that brings constant reminders of [...]
My new EP, "Duels", is now out in its entirety and available everywhere. Here are some words on the trepidation that comes with releasing new work.

Like every other Louiston record, you can grab it here or stream the whole thing on my website or soundcloud. Many, many sweaty hours were put into recording this thing at my house. The LP spans [...]
After a long time at work on a new Louiston record, it is out of my hands, down the street getting mastered at Wilburland Studios. Done. Finished. It's called, Reconciler. It's 10 songs, and it's pretty damn cool, if I may. This is the first track I've received back, a quiet, snarky little ditty called [...]
