Biography

Seattle-based Jherek Bischoff is equal parts songwriter, producer, performer and composer. He has also been called a "pop polymath" (The New York Times), a "Seattle phenom" (The New Yorker), and "the missing link between the sombre undertones of Ennio Morricone and the unpredictability of John Cale" (NME), but no need to get too braggy: This music speaks for ...

I have been so moved by this album, I feel I need to make the effort to write a review.

Since February I have worked in a record shop, and have been given new promos to listen to.
I've heard some great music, but in 2003 I was given Jeff Buckleys Grace as a gift and nothing else has even come close to effecting me so deeply.

But this album is stirring me.

It envelops you and seems to kindle something inside, so subtle its hard for me to put my finger on or explain. Its made me cry in a few places. Its absorbed me and is in the process of entwining itself with my soul. I find myself listening to it more and more, and each time its gone deeper. Track seven "counting" is especially haunting and beautiful.
The album swoops and soars and takes you on an emotional journey and leaves you feeling satisfied at the end.
Its not for everyone I know, but I also know that Its not just for me, that there are bound to be others who could feel the same way as I do. So, if you are musically open enough to allow it to work its ever so slightly avante-garde orchestral magic, you WILL be moved. Trust me.
Its a piece of art and if you ever read the customer reviews, Jherek Bischoff, know you have reached at least one person and that you are DEFINATELY a composer. Thankyou. Jeff would have loved it.

Love it 3 Dec 2012

I really enjoy this album and highly recommend it to others. I bought it after seeing an awesome performance with David Byrne on Youtube and listened the whole deal during a chilly walk through our local zoo. Ever since then it gets a listen every couple days or so.

Gorgeous Album! 12 Dec 2012
By Olivia Vigrabs - Published on Amazon.com

I have seen Jherek Bischoff twice at Grand Theft Orchestra concerts and always enjoyed his opening solos, so I decided to check out his album. It took a few listen throughs, but I am now enchanted by this album, it is truly gorgeous. I had originally wish it was just instrumentals (and to an extent I still do), but the album as a whole has definitely grown on me, and now what I really want is more of anything from him.
Gorgeous, but some tracks strictly for digesting singularly 6 Aug 2014
By Garrett Zecker - Published on Amazon.com

Beautiful little album that approaches a modernist melding of classical and rock. I first caught Bischoff in Boston opening a set with Amanda Palmer, and I enjoyed the music live. Picking up the digital album, I was somewhat not as impressed as some of the music was gorgeous and spacey, while some pieced were a little bit too modernist, bordering on incomprehension - or at least what I considered to be not in line with something that holds listen-ability throughout the entirety of the album. That is not to say it doesn't all go together, but in The Nest, Your Ghost, Counting, and Young & Lovely we see something that is strikingly different and more engaging to an audience who is not just listening to the album alone, digesting the work with a pair of headphones. A beautiful album, but is somewhat balancing the line between modernist edgy art and an album that is meant to reach a wide audience. Bischoff is an incredible composer, however, and the promise held in every note is certainly going to continue a brilliant career.
