Further Behind You is my debut solo musical EP. 

This album was written and recorded in my apartment in Ottawa, mostly during this period of self-isolation in March and April 2020. I view it as a time capsule. You can hear in it what I heard as I created, including the sound of the train passing by.

I hope these 3 songs bring you some peace and empowerment, as they brought me.

You can find it on my bandcamp, and all streaming services.

Written and performed by Conyer Clayton

This collaborative album fuses the poetry of Conyer Clayton and the musical compositions of Nathanael Larochette. It was released alongside it's sister project, the chapbook, Mitosis.

It follows my ongoing process of grief, closure, and healing following the death of my mother in 2010.
