MORE ABOUT FACES ON FILM
Faces on Film is the project of songwriter Mike Fiore. Showcasing both the epic and the intimate on The Troubles, its first official LP, guitars drone and pianos alternate between plucking out fun and eerie melodies, all while Fiore makes veiled references to unspoken crimes, abandoned plans, and dysfunctional families, with his rich and enigmatic lyrics.
With a sound this multifaceted, it's not surprising that Faces on Film has collaborated with a rotating cast of musicians from its Boston-area home, including members of bands like Hallelujah the Hills and Mr. Sister, in addition to consistently featuring Dave Hinckley on guitar.
Though Fiore wrote some of the songs on The Troubles as long as four years ago, the recording process was brief-- predominantly recorded in a former piano factory in less than one week.
Upon its release, The Troubles was named as an “Album of the Year” by the Boston Globe.
