Liam O’Brien’s Faithless Followers | 6.5.2016

Posted on Jun 7, 2016

This weekend I worked with Liam O’Brien and Casey Marnocha to record a 5-song EP for Liam’s solo project, the Faithless Followers. We converted two floors of a Riverwest home into an ephemeral studio where the band played the entire EP as a continuous set, without multiple takes or overdubs. The seven members of the band were spread out across all rooms of the house to maximize isolation. The new EP will be mixed and produced by Mr. O’Brien himself and is set for release this fall.

Liam O’Brien’s Faithless Followers is a rotating collective of players. The personnel for this session was:

  • Liam O’Brien (voice, guitar, flute)
  • Ben DeCorsey (mandolin, bazouki)
  • Eric Klosterman (synth, tape loops)
  • Casey Marnocha (percussion)
  • Ryan Pilochowski (percussion, banjo, electronics)
  • Ryan Shaw (bass)
  • John Tyborski (percussion)
