In the summer of 2015 Shane was grieving the passing of his best friend. Initially Tutmarc dealt with the loss submerging his pain with heavy drugs and alcohol, but things only grew darker. After six months with still no relief from the sadness, and thoughts of possibly joining his friend on the other side, he found peace in creating new music and began writing and recording. Throughout 2016 every few months Shane released a new song as a lead up to Solar Twin’s debut album Pink Noise.
“One of the reasons I chose that title is because Pink Noise is supposed to be a healing, regenerative sound” explains Shane. “The upcoming Solar Twin album to me represents a rebirth. After 10 years of following my muse down a more dusty, American roots path, this is a project that feels like complete freedom. I was tired of relying on other people to help me realize my ambitions, so I put together a home studio and started doing everything myself. I brought in a few friends along the way (including Matthew Hoopes of Relient K who played guitar on a few of the songs), but this is mostly just a personal vision of music with endless possibilities. Melodic, dark, introspective, moody, and at times very catchy.”
