The EP "Surrounded by Orange" debuts Sbann's versatility as a song-writer from power pop to experimental electronica to acoustic guitar and vocal harmony.
SBANN, a Zen minimalist, says that when it comes to writing, recording and mixing "use what cuts through, not what adds on top.”
His songwriting operates in the service of larger ideas delivered in a comfortable, intimate voice.
