A Cure for pain in the


Moss Manor

Forged in friendship and mutual admiration. Deeply collaborative and experimental. Bending toward beauty.

It has been a soulful journey making this record with these dear men whom I love so much. We took great care. We took a new path. The art that we created is whole, and belongs to the world today. May it be heard, shared and discovered by music lovers. May it be of use in the healing work ahead.

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”
