About Proof I Exist
Proof I Exist is a one-man solo effort with a full-band sound. The DIY project began in 2003 with the release of lo-fi basement recordings to immediately surrounding radio stations. The first EP, Paint it Black and Don't Look Back, was recorded using nothing but a computer mic and some generic software, but still managed to earn the attention of local media who dubbed the "obvious musical talent" a "recipe for success."
Operating out of a basement in the suburbs of Cleveland, the debut LP, Suburban Sci-Fi, was recorded with a slight upgrade in equipment and boasts all-live instrumentation. The album was recorded over the course of several years, combining the sounds of past collaborations and releases. Mixing and production was completed for the album in late 2011. The album was released primarily to college stations and received steady rotation on several stations.
