Starting music as a vague desire to play in a band and be accepted by his friends, Christian Lyon began with humble beginnings of screamo covers and acoustic songs written about boredom. Eventually, he broke the odd cycle of writing songs about being lonely, recording them with friends, having them shot down by his peers, and then writing more songs near the end of middle school, the time to become a man.
At his final year in Jr. High, he realized that the reason why his songs were not well received was because he did not care about them. This is when he began analyzing his surroundings and himself, and comparing the two. He scratched the awful covers and horrid songs, and began anew, writing the way he thought. This is where we find him now.
Nearly everything you hear on this record has been contrived by Christian. His soul-mate Connor Boyle and Music Mogul Bryan Dalle Molle have aided in the writing of several auxiliary instruments included in this album, and will receive credit on each individual track. Everything else has been constructed carefully and methodically by Christian, including writing, performing, as well as the production and recording of every song. It's also worth noting that every instrument on this record is real and were recorded in Christian's bedroom.
Vessels deliver blood, vessels connect two beings, and vessels carry the most important content. That is the concept behind this album.
