“Elyria” will be available in gold vinyl and in purple vinyl right here.

About Faith And The Muse

Monica Richards met William Faith in 1992 when her band, Strange Boutique, opened for Shadow Project in Norfolk, VA. Faith and the Muse was started in 1993 with Richards and Faith exchanging tapes while Richards was still living on the east coast. Shortly thereafter she moved to Los Angeles where the duo was based.

They recorded their debut album “Elyria” in March 1994, following it in 1995 with the concept album “Annwyn, Beneath the Waves”, based around Welsh mythology. The band followed this up with an extensive touring schedule, playing with both guest musicians as a full line-up and as an acoustic duo – the latter tour documented on the “Vera Causa” album in 2001.

After their third album, “Evidence of Heaven” (1999), the band modernized both their image and their overall sound. That change was clear on their 2003 album “The Burning Season”, their first on Metropolis Records.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
