about

We/Or/Me is Bahhaj Taherzadeh, a manuscript editor who recently found himself awake in the small hours, often unable to return to sleep after attending to the needs of his infant twin daughters during the first year of their life. It was under these conditions, amidst a haze of exhaustion and a sense of needing to re-find his place in the world, that his debut full-length record Sleeping City was conceived and largely recorded. Taking cues and inspiration from the British folk music of the 1960s as well as the more experimental compositions of the minimalist movement, the record comes with a warmth and intimacy only found in the solitude of late night home recordings.

“emotionally wrenching . . . , delicate melodies and heartbreaking narratives reminiscent of . . . Bert Jansch or Leonard Cohen.
