Description

I had originally intended this to be a five song EP called "No-Life King" which would follow a character's quest for identity, wanting to find love, losing their self in excess, pushing away their friends, having an epiphany and yet ending up with no one. I had everything planned out but then I started coming up with more material though it still follows my original concept pretty closely. After recording Light From A Dying Star with Jason Martin, I had Ronnie Martin, his brother, do a remix of "Shame Shame Shame". I LOVED what he did to it! I had been listening to more and more electro-pop and using synth drum loops for my home demos, becoming a fan of their simplicity and beat. I secretly love disco and dance music but I'm white AND a guy so I just bob my head. My aim for Beautiful Liar was to create just that: a catchy electro-pop dance album which might dupe the listener into dancing to an otherwise depressing set of lyrics.
