2024 - Happy New YEar & New Album

2024 Brings a New & Final Album  

Greetings from Portland. In May Transient Songs mixed the final track at Earwig Studios in Seattle with long time studio owner, engineer, and all around great human Don Farwell. From 2022-2023 I moved to Vashon Island, WA after 17 years in Seattle. With a batch of songs, the band reconvened at the Snakepit at home in Greenwood and we managed to get in the studio a few more times. During the depths of Covid a lot of shit happened, both good and bad. In 2024 the final masters were complete by our long time…

A New Site, A New Album  

Hello All,

Welcome to the new home on the interwebs for Transient Songs. Now that we have a new album about to come out it's time to move of bandcamp and put up a site proper again. This album is a special one to me. Not only are they the best batch of songs I've ever written and recorded, I've been wholly present throughout the life of the songs. The players are familiar faces with Michael returning to Seattle after a three year run in Europe and a welcome new addition behind the kit of Mr. Craig Keller…Read more
