Kiwi Artist Samuel Saffery and local musician Erik Meier teamed up shortly after the first collaborative release with featured artists in the Bushwick Community. The two are continuing to organically develop and refine a unique sound and share similar influences. They are constantly driven and focused on sharing their creations with the world; their passion and emotions through song.
Inspiration stemmed from 60s, 70s and contemporary folk rock, the self titled debut release displays local artist Erik Meier accompanied by a panel of creators and friends within the Bushwick Music Scene. The debut self titled showcases passionate vocals and harmonies from Joanna Levine (Pinkwing) and minimal appropriate acoustic leads performed by Bill Bartholomew and Dave Klym (The Golden Age of Transit). Upbeat and more innocent is the latter placed track Spring Song featuring Carin Beam’s cowriting and lead vocals as well as Noisycrane’s Jane Park on strings. Erik Meier manifests a soul searching journey to find sound a voice with help and strong influence from these raw-talented names and continues to develop it.
