nothing,nowhere.
The mysterious nothing, nowhere is the emo-influenced project of a New England singer and songwriter who covers his face in promotional photos and makes a habit of wearing hoods while performing. As revealed in interviews, he started playing acoustic guitar at the age of 12, at first attempting emo-style versions of popular rap songs. After devoting time to a series of short-lived bands throughout his teens and beyond, he decided to work solo. Again merging elements of hip-hop with guitar-based instrumentation, and citing songwriters such as Sufjan Stevens, Owen, and (Sandy) Alex G among his inspirations, he started using the moniker nothing, nowhere in April 2015.

The project's first album, the nothing, nowhere lp, appeared in June 2015, followed by the EP Bummer later the same year. Working on some of the tracks with producers he'd met on SoundCloud, the latter was recorded in his parents' basement in Vermont around the time he committed to pursuing music full-time. The EP Where Are You? followed on Synergy Records in early 2016, and in 2017, and the album Reaper arrived via Pete Wentz's DCD2 label and Equal Vision Records. It featured appearances by Dashboard Confessional and Lil West. ~ Marcy Donelson
Wicca Phase Springs Eternal
Wicca Phase Springs Eternal
Adam McIlwee, former vocalist/guitarist for Scranton, Pennsylvania-based emo/indie rock group Tigers Jaw, records solo material as Wicca Phase Springs Eternal (sometimes just referred to as Wicca Phase). The project mixes elements of hip-hop, goth, and emo, with Adam McIlwee's Morrissey-inspired vocals crooning introspective, emotionally heavy lyrics over beats reminiscent of trap, witch house, and cloud rap. Wicca Phase is a co-founder of GothBoiClique and is also affiliated with the Thraxxhouse crew.

Wicca Phase made its debut in 2012 with "Bite My Ear," a single on Run for Cover Records which featured guest vocals by fellow Tigers Jaw member Brianna Collins. Shortly after Wicca Phase released the Fantasy Camp-produced mixtape #FEB13 on Valentine's Day of 2013, McIlwee and two other group members (Pat Brier and Dennis Mishko) announced their departure from Tigers Jaw. Wicca Phase continued issuing mixtapes and EPs, and made guest appearances on albums by GDP, Spooky Black, and Noah23. Full-length Secret Boy was released by Disposition Collective in 2016.
