Ben James Miller - Until We Are Bones
After working together on his Satellites EP, Ben came back to me for help with his next release. Until We Are Bones is a deeply personal EP, made up of songs Ben wrote while a loved one was going through treatment for a brain tumour. No prizes for guessing who the skeletons are supposed to belong to. The cover was an original ink and watercolour painting that was scanned and then digitally worked into the cover design.
After Ben sent me the words he wanted on the CD itself, I suggested that the disc image be a stark contrast to the cover. The stars don't just reflect the words in the poem, they are a reminder of what continues to exist after our mortal remains have gone.
