It wasn't supposed to happen like this. After recovering from cancer and the subsequent year-long, deep-woods, LSD-fueled retreat from reality in Northeastern Vermont, John Elliot returned from the forest to discover that his childhood best friend had committed suicide. In the following months, he channeled that grief into the musical project Eyes Made Quiet.  

Elliot moved in with his parents back in Los Angeles to keep vigil with the few instruments left around the house from his youth: a cheap Yamaha keyboard, a single delay pedal, and his first nylon-string guitar. The songs unraveled slowly, crafted by a loss of innocence, late at night, feverishly recorded in the garage. The ghosts could be purged in a sanctuary of glowing, intimate soundscapes, with warm synths, soft textures, and ethereal, echoing voices. 

In the spring of 2015 Eyes Made Quiet teamed up with producer Cody Tarpley (SoMo) to record a single called "Above Our Home," which they are releasing later this summer. The song is to be featured in the Yahoo documentary "Emily's Entourage," which follows the story of Emily Kramer-Golinkoff and her fight with Cystic Fibrosis. The name Eyes Made Quiet is inspired by Wordsworth: "with an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things
