Sleeping Me

Sleeping Me“… a sweeping, melancholic grandeur which never threatens to turn into bombast, but is almost enough to induce tears.” [sic] Magazine

Textural and meticulously composed, the droning and emotive ambience of Sleeping Me is a quiet reminder of all the beauty and personal strife that is experienced in solitude. This music is an homage to the bittersweet rise and fall of fortune, the discovery and evasiveness of identity and truth, and the acceptance of distance, disappointment, and the poignancy of an ever-elusive yet omnipresent love.

      


Discography

Cradlesongs

May 2009

Textural and meticulously composed, the emotive ambience of Sleeping Me is a quiet reminder of all the beauty and personal strife that is experienced in solitude. Tidal currents of delayed guitar carry the listener across an ocean of reverb, cast adrift beneath a brooding sky. Each track hands an elusive secret to the next, hinted at but never revealed. Sleeping Me’s masterful debut album Cradlesongs is an homage to the bittersweet rise and fall of fortune, the discovery and evasiveness of identity and truth, the acceptance of distance and disappointment, and the poignancy of an ever-elusive yet omnipresent love. From the sad, sparse introductory piece ‘Empty Cradle’ to the epic melancholy of closing track ‘The Rattle In Our Throats’, Cradlesongs demonstrates an unmatchable elegance and poise, allowing these sorrowful symphonies to extend far beyond their own discrete edges and breathe new life into a crowded genre.

Biography

Clayton McEvoy grew up in the vast expanse of desert and concrete that is California’s Inland Empire. Though initially deciding to play music for very different reasons (girls and free booze), the discovery of shoegaze and ambient music, followed by an interest in minimalist composition, would become the foundation for more focused experimentation as Sleeping Me.

Clayton has also collaborated on the new album by The Refractors (Dynamophone, 2009), and collaborates with Jorge Mantas under the name The Beautiful Schizophonic.”

Sleeping Me’s debut release Cradlesongs is an homage to the bittersweet rise and fall of fortune, the discovery and evasiveness of identity and truth, and the acceptance of distance, disappointment, and the poignancy of an ever-elusive yet omnipresent love.
