2009 – present (10 years)
Influenced by the likes of The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, and Elliott Smith, J began writing music alone in 2006. After several improvised ambient releases–including 2006's Shades of Summer and 2008's Nearly Lovers single–he began to take the project in a new direction. Crafting otherworldly soundscapes, industrial rhythms, and lush guitar orchestrations threaded together by his deeply personal lyrics, abrasions became a cohesive, independent medium of emotional exploration.
This coalesced into his cathartic, genre bending second album, Memorial, which was released on November 29th, 2009. The music video for "The Waiting Wall", an experimental dark-ambient miasma at the album's heart, came a few months later, recorded and edited just as independently as the record it accompanied.
