Comrad is a Connecticut-based folk, singer-songwriter. “1000 Lives” is the third song from Comrad’s upcoming EP, 10 Feet Away, slated for release September 2016. He had this to say about the song:
“This whole song is a very specific memory I have from high school. I usually don’t write songs that way, but I guess this memory was starving for attention. The town I lived in had one of those seasonal carnivals with rides, fried dough and apparently a young me ego crushing machine. I went with some friends, one of which was a girl I had a crush on, and got completely ignored despite my best efforts. The worst part like I say in the song, is that the girl had no idea I was even trying.”
The EP was produced at Fireplace Studios in Manhattan, New York by producer Josh Sadlier-Brown (Featurette, Parson James, Kae Sun).
The man behind Comrad, Arthur Revechkis, began writing music in college but only started to really focus on his music more recently. Ever since then, Revechkis has been perfecting the lyrics and sound of the project he now calls Comrad. He writes music that is unique in the lyrics and melodies; he likes to write lyrics that tell a narrative and are funny, sweet and even sarcastic at times. Revechkis draws influences from artists like Tom Petty, Kansas, Paul Simon, Ani Difranco, Dave Matthews, Bill Evans and Regina Spektor and incorporates a taste of each in his music. The Connecticut native is a man of many trades, fully composing and writing his music while also playing the guitar and piano.
