Jeffrey Silverstein is a musician, special education teacher, and writer based in Portland, Oregon. He is ½ of the bi-coastal duo Nassau, a group who have received praise from outlets including NPR, Stereogum and Hype Machine.
His debut solo EP is called How On Earth - a collection of ambient-folk songs written as part of an artist-in-residence program at the Sou’Wester Lodge on the coast of Washington.
In March of 2018 Silverstein lived, wrote, and demoed material inside a vintage Ford Motorhome turned recording studio for a week. The songs capture the natural beauty of the PNW and Silverstein’s notable shift towards a more patient mindset and songwriting approach since relocating from Brooklyn, New York. His tools are minimal - guitar, a handful of pedals, vintage drum machine and lyrics that read more like mantras than stories. Thematically the songs touch upon joy, education, and losing a loved one.
After some fine tuning, Silverstein tracked and mixed the EP with Jeremy Reinhold at his home studio in a quiet neighborhood of SW Portland. Reinhold, who scores and composes music for the Portland Ballet helped give the songs a gentle, swaying movement.
How On Earth is set for release on Driftless Recordings in early 2019.
