Staff Review Jun 20, 2018

We've all heard the phrase, "I'll sleep when I'm dead," but Why We Sleep shines much-needed light on not only the benefits of slumber, but also the dire--and sometimes fatal--consequences of avoiding it.

Seth Andrew Davis

Seth Andrew Davis is a multifaceted composer blending electronic, classical and jazz influences into a dizzying array of sound. Davis honed his craft at the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, where he learned how to merge his dueling interests in electronic and analog sounds. His latest album, Ghost in the Machine, is fascinating and foreboding, eerie music that challenges and rewards with repeated listens (especially with headphones). We're proud to share an interview with the artist about his writing process, influences and new music.
