"From a time before any of us were playing in bands we were listening to Equal Vision bands. In my eyes they are a legendary label and so the fact that we were able to make Trade Wind a home with EVR is very much, and sorry for the cliché, a dream come true," shares vocalist Jesse Barnett. "Graphic Nature's involvement is also very important to us, as the label is operated by Will Putney. We have recorded both Trade Wind albums at his studio and I think it's safe to say that we feel not only comfortable - but cared for in the hands of Will."
"I've grown to know all the guys in Trade Wind over the years through various other musical endeavors, so naturally I was excited to hear about this project from the get go," notes Putney. "They're some of my favorite individuals as friends and musicians, and I am extremely impressed with what these four dudes from four different corners of life were able to come together and create. It's exciting to work with a band where there are no boundaries to where a song can go, and You Make Everything Disappear has succeeded in blowing away my expectations. It's a timeless record and I'm happy to be a part of it."
You Make Everything Disappear takes the band in a new direction from their previously released EP, Suffer Just To Believe, exploring darker lyrical territory and a new perspective. "We approached this record with a very open mindset. We didn't tie ourselves to an idea of what we thought we should be, we just started writing songs and what came out is what came out," Barnett reveals. "As for me personally, it's been a very hard past 15 months. You have this thing that makes you so happy...this thing you feel like you were even brought to life to do and you have to sacrifice so much for it. And sometimes you can cope with the things you leave behind, and sometimes you can't."
Trade Wind is comprised of vocalist Jesse Barnett, guitarist Tom Williams, bassist Randy LeBoeuf and drummer Andrew McEnaney. Establishing their musical careers in other bands (Stray From The Path, Stick To Your Guns, and Structures) and in the studio producing/engineering, the quartet has come together from Montreal, Los Angeles, New York City, and Toronto to create something entirely new and truly unexpected.
