ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album contains music that is stylistically different than Satyen's previous material. The first track, "Thrive Alive", is the only song taken from the large catalog of music that he wrote for his former band, Jiva Train. Each song was written and recorded with a new mindset and writing style. Satyen has always striven for variety in each aspect of music; as a writer, performer, and listener. This album represents yet another musical side. His approach with this EP was to write songs focusing on specific sounds and have production play a major role in the songwriting. This result brings him closer to the writing style of bands such as Radiohead, Brian Eno, and The Flaming Lips.


Official Artist Description/Bio:

Satyen’s music has many faces, and many sounds. His influences are always changing and expanding, but a few bands that have been a consistent source of inspiration are Radiohead, Beck, and The Flaming Lips. Satyen creates his music with the tools at hand, which mostly consists of his voice, guitar, piano, keyboards, synthesizers, and drum machines. Occasionally he might invite a live drummer to help, for a more organic feel. A significant chunk of the music has a psychedelic and dark quality, but that is just part of the story. Any emotion and sound is fair game; from a wicked techno wonderland, to epic anthemic rock, to an intimate acoustic serenade, or off into experimental euphoria.

Satyen’s name comes from the Sanskrit word “Satya”, which loosely translates to “Truth”. An American pronunciation would be “Sah-tee-yen”…Satyen's musical journey as a singer/songwriter/composer/performer started in Boulder, CO. His main instruments are guitar and piano. After he graduated from the music school at the University of Colorado at Boulder (piano) in 2003, he started to play in various Reggae and African bands as a lead guitarist. In 2004, he put together a band called Jiva Train. This band was focused on performing his music, which had influences from Rock, Latin, Jazz, Funk, Classical, and Experimental music. Immediately after their last show in the summer of 2008, Satyen decided to start recording and releasing his music as a solo artist.
