The Awkward Silents

by The Awkward Silents

Shhh... hear that? It's The Awkward Silents. New Orleans piano, upstate NY guitar and flyover state vocal harmonies blend to create what is arguably the finest music ever recorded in the history of the universe. Thoughtful, handcrafted songs. Also, kazoo.

Album Notes
Shhhh... wait.
Do you hear that?
It's the Awkward Silents.
This self-described super group uses an assortment of mildly eclectic instruments to play a wildly eclectic songlist. The duo of Jim Ellis and Doug McFarland musically jump from 2015 to 1941 to several other years in between - all while literally jumping nowhere. Even if they did jump, it would not be very high or impressive. This is why they play music, both of their athletic careers were cut short long ago due to lack of confidence and ability. Tragically, as so often is the case, they ended up on the streets, either walking or driving in cars enroute to destinations too boring to mention here. Now, the two are formally playing as a duo following years of casual encounters...

There it was again.... hear it? The Awkward Silents.

Jim and Doug have both played music for years on a variety of instruments and with ever-changing tastes in music. While they perform as solo singer/songwriters and in other groups, this project is a chance to have a different kind of fun and explore the auditory atmosphere in creative ways... to play around and use whatever instrumentation works best for the song. In any given selection you might hear a cajon, shuitar, keyboard, guitar, bass, banjo, shaker, looper, kazoo, vocals and who knows what else. You might hear all that at once or you might not hear anything at all. That would be The Awkward Silents.

Note: Due to a series of court orders, Jim and Doug are no longer legally allowed to publicly display mustaches, however, following an intense and heated arbitration hearing, images showing such images are allowed. God bless America!
