When Michigan singer/songwriter Joseph Scott’s main band, Canada, went into a protracted (ultimately permanent) hiatus at the start of 2009, Scott relocated from Michigan to Brooklyn and began focusing on solo recordings within a makeshift real estate studio room. Adapting the name Light Pines from a likewise titled 1900s North Michigan copper mine, the music group moved from single documenting into full-fledged live single performance. Scott occasionally augmented the music group with a tempo section for travels, but also continuing to perform by himself sometimes. The task grew within the series of many recorded produces. The to begin these was 2009’s folky A Encounter Made of Hardwood, accompanied by 2010’s full-length The Falls, which noticed Scott diving deeper into even more experimental tendencies plus some from the loop-based songwriting that was characterizing the Light Pines live knowledge in those days. This year 2010 Scott loaded up once more and transferred to Akron, Ohio, where he resided between tours. The greater tumultuous Plume of Ash EP, a five-song trek into an eerie folk wilderness with concealed echoey digital murmurs throughout, premiered in 2012.
