Dempsey has been working and refining his approach to guitar and synth based compositions for some time, mostly as a member of improvisation based heavy drone band US Prisms and as a collaborator on scores for Atlanta based filmmakers. Marthasville Fine Audio Recordings is proud to release this stunning solo debut."-Marthasville Fine Audio Recordings
