David Reilly (vocals/guitar)
INSIDE, Reilly's most literal and personal work to date, chronicles his ten year battle with substance abuse, loss, love, and reinvention. "I made these songs after quitting a lifelong addiction, and deciding to quit music to pursue a career in drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Upon picking up a guitar for the first time in almost 3 years, I had songs, and I borrowed gear to make them into finished product. I was actually surprised that I could still make an attempt at music without substances, and the rest came in the form of the rooster." - The "Rooster" being Reilly's manager and longtime friend, Thom Hazaert, who helped David pave his way back into the record racks. All of Inside's tracks were written, recorded and performed entirely by DR in the most minimalist of settings ("roland 505, one acoustic guitar, one mic, and a cheap digital multitrack"), with the notable exception of "Blaming The Truth", and "Far From Home", earlier demo tracks which had made the internet rounds under the moniker Fluzee (the former featuring production from Reilly's GLU cohort Jeff Turzo.) Reilly is currently writing, and will spend the Summer working on his debut full-length, expected to surface in early 2005.
