Although the potential energy of Linus In the Sapphire has existed for years, a precious blue babe was born in October 2012 when Mike Britt joined Laura Fisher in New York City so they could pursue their songwriting collaboration.
What was originally intended to be a creative exchange lasting about a week became: a long winter of crafting and composing; a love affair with one Yamaha r1mx drum machine for sating split personalities; an array of jams with a plethora of colourful musicians in the tri-state area; and a fluid childhood in NYC that gave way to a timely relocation slightly west to Philadelphia.
Linus In the Sapphire is an audio chameleon with stripes and streaks of dream-pop, progressive rock, funk, industrial, neo-classical, jazz, and manic psychedelia. They are currently bouncing around a never-ending list of verbs that include writing, recording, performing, and touring.
Their debut EP, FREE SLEEP, was released on February 26th, 2014. http://linusinthesapphire.bandcamp.com/
