Biography

Billerica, MA, United States (1995 – present)

Autumn Tears is a band from Billerica, MA, United States, formed in September 1995 by Erika T. Swinnich (vocals, musical arrangements) and Ted Tringo (keyboards and piano, musical arrangements, vocals). After an intensive period of song writing and rehearsing, they entered West Sound Studios to commit to tape the works they had created. In April of 1996, their first CD, “Love Poems for Dying Children, Act I” was released through Dark Symphonies, their own record label. The music of “Love Poems. …” consisted of symphonic arrangements designed to evoke intense emotions of sadness and loneliness in the listener. Influences include ancient chants, classical music, and contemporary artists (Dead Can Dance, Anchorage, sToa, Enya).

In May 1997, Autumn Tears released their second full-length album, “Love Poems for Dying Children, Act II: The Garden of Crystalline Dreams”. Erika left Autumn Tears after the release of “Act II” to pursue writing her novel. New vocalist Jennifer LeeAnna was recruited due to her extensive experience and tremendous talent. The first release of “Act I” was originally supposed to be limited to 2000 copies and sold out quickly, but due to an overwhelming amount of requests it was re-released with a new layout and artwork in 1998. All tracks were remixed and remastered. As a bonus, an additional and exclusive track titled “The Intermission”, was also included on the repress, in which Jennifer LeeAnna made her debut appearance.

In December 1999, Erika rejoined Autumn Tears as a full-time member.
