Music Making Band. Deron Johnson, Josh Hines, Joe Marchese, Jeff Mach, Shannon Cantor
Clouds Make Sounds was born of sincere friendships, youthful musings, and genuine talent. The four original members began writing and working in January of 2010. The music that they create, quite simply, turns heads. It demands complete attention, alternately serene and bombastic, passionate and playful, it is something to completely lose yourself in. And that is exactly what those who have seen Clouds in their hometown and along the east coast will tell you.
Clouds entered the studio in July 2010 and after a month of 8-12 hour days finished recording their first full length album. In the process Clouds enlisted the help of Shannon Cantor, who they added as a part-time member in August 2010. Part time so that she can fulfill her other obligations, mainly high school. After a few near-dormant fall months and their very first tour in the Winter of 2010-2011, they finished mixing and mastering the album and are releasing it on March 25th, 2011, a year after their very first show.
Their album exhibits the broad range of their musical influence and prowess. Jeff Buckley meets Fiona Apple in a forest of driving poly-rhythms, folk sensibilities, dense harmonies, and an ever-present all-encompassing atmosphere. Their music is heard with the ears, but felt in the chest.
