After turning the original "Reflections of Reality" Acoustic EP of 7 inspirational folk songs into a collaboration project with 14 producers generating 57 electronic remixes spanning the genres of Dubstep, House, Trance, Electrofolk, Progressive, Folktronica, Hip Hop, etc..., Chords of Truth is once again creating classic singer/songwriter folk tunes.
In the fall of 2013, Jason Garriotte (Aka Chords of Truth) was awoken in the night with the phrase "Moon Time" in his head after the viewing of a documentary on electronic music gatherings converged with the prior knowledge that life on this planet is strongly influenced by the moon. This creative inspiration generated several new songs including "Moon Time" as the first single to be released.
Working with producer Jef Joslin and recording engineer Spencer Clarke, Chords of Truth created an upbeat, classic acoustic folk tune with a message and catchy chorus. Technorati.com has called Chords of Truth "an acoustic powerhouse" and 10 Mile Stereo said "Chords of Truth is a unique story teller with a distinct bass voice reminiscent of Johnny Cash."
Back in the early 2000s, Jason discovered the 13 Moon Calendar and researched the history of time keeping. It astounded him to find that throughout history the imperial empires would systematically force their calendars on any culture they conquered in what appears to be a control tactic. Our current Gregorian calendar of measuring dates according to the sun with months of random days disconnects our essence from nature. We are the only known species to even know what the date is and the rest of the planet more intimately revolves around the cycles of the moon.
Everything from the tides to female menstrual cycles are affected by the moon, so why are we not living according to this framework? Chords of Truth new single "Moon Time" is meant to celebrate our cosmic connection with the moon and promote harmony with all of nature through a change in our perception of time.
Chords of Truth has toured a variety of cities throughout the United States playing countless shows over the past few years.
