This is mantra music for the after party. Baptism music for the hotel lobby. Meditation songs for a make-out session. This is me playing bass and singing for a long drive home.

This EP was made in the year 2011 using only bass guitar. Thank you to my parents for the means to record, and to Ben Burroughs, Ben Simmons, and Ben Rush; each of you lent me either a voice or a bass.

Cassette copies of "Back to Bassics" coming soon.


released January 23, 2012

All songs written and recorded by Isaac Joel, with additional vocals on "All I Have to Do Is Dream" by Ben Burroughs.

"All I Have to Do Is Dream" originally written by Lucy Simon and Boudleaux Bryant.
