Scenes From Our Classic Future is the realization of three songs and two projects that came together as one. As young aspiring musicians since the early age of 12, Greg Paulus and John Camp practiced playing jazz standards into the wee small hours of the morning together. Eventually the two would find themselves both in New York under new and more electronic circumstances. Deeply indebted to the mastery of Herbie Hancock, Paulus and Camp would reconnect, this time with synthesizers, and continue on their musical journey together.

On one particular day, Camp played Paulus a track titled "Remo". Paulus instantly fell in love with the track but both felt it needed something more. Paulus insisted on laying down vocals and within 15 minutes had the lyrics written out and soon after added trumpet.

Around the same time Paulus was revisiting "Surf Song", a track he and Brian Derdiarian had been working on sporadically for some time. The two would record long one-take jams on trumpet, Juno 106, and guitar, feeding them all thru looping and delay pedals. From these sessions they would find a stride and in addition to "Surf Song", record "Fire In The Sky". Similar to "Remo", "Fire In The Sky" would come together in a lightning bolt sort of way. When adding the final touches, Camp was around and was enlisted to add piano which would bring the whole EP together.

With the three tracks complete, Paulus began to see a correlation between them. Each in one way or another embodied the feeling of when the beach meets the ocean. Remo" was distinctly reminiscent of their times spent on Rockaway Beach: The trips out in the car or bus, drinking and smoking on the shore and slowly making their way back into the Brooklyn night to get crazy. "Fire In The Sky" and "Surf Song" had a distinct West Coast vibe, most likely due to the fact that Derdiarian, being from California, could not help but bring that West Coast swagger to the music. At the end of the day, the idea of having their good friend Tanner Ross add his signature touch to the project was a necessity. Ross would take "Remo" and make it his own hazy gem. With that, Paulus would end up with four songs that reminded him of that special place where the sand hits the ocean.

Scenes From Our Classic Future is a collection of songs that Paulus, Camp, and Derdiarian love and have labored over for a long time. They hope you enjoy them as much as they do.

Much love from Greg, John, and Brian.
