Half Light Music’s origins can be traced back to the unfortunate and premature demise of Epic recording artist, Bliss 66. Frontman and songwriter Cheyenne Goff found himself with a growing catalogue of material but lacking the right combination of players to bring the songs to life…Re-enter bassist Donnie Patty, who had shared the stage with Goff both in Bliss 66 and the Paper Street Saints, a Detroit based rock outfit that generated much local and regional success. As the cinders began to cool on that band, it just made sense for them to get back to their roots making hook oriented rock songs that folks could tap their foot and sing along to. And that is exactly what they’ve done with HLM.
Along with lead guitarist Marty Yount, and drummer & ex-66er Bob Cook , they have developed a sound that fuses traditional and classic rock song structures with Goff’s vivid and poetic lyricism; a union that enables the strong suits of each individual players’ skill set to shine. Not afraid to take risks, the band has also released electronic oriented remixes as well as a full album of worship music, bringing the core of the group full circle back to their origins playing music in church. In keeping with their goal of making music that helps the listener to transcend the often ugly here and now, the focus of the band is and always will be to write songs that connect and empathize with their audience whilst sharing the joys and pains on this journey of life.
