Conrad 'Firefly' Closer To Truth 100

All Tracks Written & Produced by Conrad Colson, Crackazat, Elliot Hollins

Artwork By Richard Colson

This EP has very mixed emotions for the label, it's with great sadness we present our 100th release but also a fitting tribute as last year while in the process of working together with Conrad on this EP he tragically took his own life, but along with his family we have all been keen to still showcase Conrad's music and talent to the world so his sound can be heard and enjoyed by all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Colson family with their help in making this all possible.

Below are words from his father Richard Colson.

Conrad was always composing and searching out intricate combinations of rhythm, melody, and vocals, layering these in imaginative temporal soundscapes
The human voice was important as it becomes intertwined with his percussive undertones
This tessellation of voice and instrumental elements seems to keep remaking itself on each hearing and the initial simplicity conceals a hidden depth in each composition.

Conrad is no longer with us but he has left an astonishing number of songs that should now reach a wider audience. He was driven to create musically throughout his life and in this sphere, he excelled and was able to set to one side aspects of his life that caused him distress.

Conrad was introduced to Closer to Truth by Ben Jacobs (Crackazat)
It is fitting that this EP includes Crackazat's remix of Conrad's 'Reprieve'
There is also a remix of the title track 'Firefly' by Elliot Hollins
This EP is a testament to Conrad's dedication to his music and the incredible support of Closer to Truth records.

Conrad's family would like to thank David Nicol (Closer to Truth) Ben Jacobs (Crackazat) and Elliot Hollins for their amazing contributions.
