PHOURIST (for-rist) & THE PHOTONS began as Nick Hill's solo project (known then only as PHOURIST). After a few solo records; Terrestrial Daydream and Breathe Deep (highly textured, cinematic records), Hill became restless for a larger sound. He is quoted as saying, "Having only one guy to play all the parts is pretty limiting; especially if you can hear so much more in your head! I was also getting tired of being the guy who played pretty music... I love pretty music but I felt like I had more to give... kinda wanted to kick in some teeth." With an arsenal of songs that had no proper outlet; Hill went through countless lineup changes. It wasn't until a friend of his father's recommended Scott Boice as a potential drummer that the current incarnation of the band began to take shape. Boice's firm grasp of dynamics and uniquely instinctual style of playing lent itself perfectly to the path the music was headed. After going through a few fantastic bassists (Cher Von, Adam Crowhorn, Stuart Wicke), who all left to pursue their own projects, a chance encounter along the glistening shore of Louisville, KY's riverbank led to the addition of Justin Perez on bass and Andrew Critchelow on guitar/sound-design. This combined with Hill's love of ambient sound and cinematic style of writing melodies led to the sound that is "Phourist & the Photons."
