Father John Misty: After dropping out of college in New York, Josh Tillman (b. 1981) moved to Seattle and spent a year paying rent by freelance writing and donating plasma. Befriending Eric Fisher (Damien Jurado, Rosie Thomas) while on tour in the fall on 2004, Tillman coerced him into recording what would become ” I Will Return”, a full-length reminiscent of the southern-gothic writings of Flannery O’Conner and the music of Nick Drake and Pete Seeger. The CD-R would be distributed and promoted word-of-mouth in paper sleeves while on the road (with acts such as Damien Jurado, Dolorean and Saxon Shore) for over a year until spring 2005 when KEEP Recordings offered to release a limited, special edition run of the record. Tillman continues to record constantly, finishing a full-length with Fisher entitled ”Long May You Run, J. Tillman”.

Artist is also tagged by download services as J. Tillman, and aside from his role as a prolific singer-songwriter, also plays drums for Seattle WA based band Fleet Foxes. Since 2012, he has taken a drastic departure from his previous musical style. Now touring and releasing music under the moniker Father John Misty, Tillman's creative direction has taken an ethereal and meandering direction that has become a hit with old fans and new.

Phosphorescent: Phosphorescent is the working moniker of American singer-songwriter Matthew Houck. Originally from Alabama, Houck began recording and performing under this nom de plume in 2001 in Athens, Georgia. He is currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
