Neverlight – “The Quiet Room”
15 November 2019
DIGITAL | CD
Neverlight was born out of darkness, out of fear, and out of the possibility of loss. In 2012, vocalist Amanda Farrell was diagnosed with cancer. Though the word “cancer” is fearsome enough, even more terrifying to Amanda was the very real possibility that surgery would damage her voice. To someone who derives so much happiness and peace from the simple act of singing, such damage would be devastating. However, after she recovered from surgery and realized that her voice was intact, she knew she was meant to use it.
Partners Josh and Amanda had been writing songs together since the early 2000s, so it was very natural for them to focus their energies into a cohesive project. After releasing an EP and full-length album with local talent, the duo decided that Neverlight’s vision would be better served as a studio project, with artists brought in as necessary to help create the best music possible. Neverlight is about to release their second album, The Quiet Room, with that format.
Neverlight tells stories set to music. These stories serve as a barrier against, and as a means of accepting, the darkness that permeates our lives. We live in darkness, uncertainty, and chaos, and we are not afraid.
