About this album

  • Published: Mar 19, 2009


Number Zero is the first album from a sound travesty.  My name is James Enriquez and a sound travesty is the name I operate under.  I am the only member of this so called "band."  I started recording some stuff from my very humble home recording studio and got excited about the fact that I could actually do this on my own.  The first song I recorded was "You Blew Me Away" and I was pretty pleased with it and got a lot of positive feedback. 

This first album is pretty rough in the recording sense.  I really didn't know what I was doing, but the songs were in my head, haunting me and needed to come out.  Over the last 2 years or so, i've recorded over 40 songs and been tweaking them and re-doing stuff that bothered me about them.  It's actually been a while that the Number Zero songs have been finished but I never had the nerve to fully share them with the world.  All I needed was time and the thought that I didn't want all the time and love I put into them to be in vain.

I was confused about how I would break the songs up into different albums, but I decided not to put too much thought into it, because it would just delay me from doing anything more with them.  So my answer was simple, I put the first 15 songs that I recorded on the first album, taking a few out that I didn't feel were good enough.  The result is Number Zero, which is a tribute to one of my loves as a child.  I used to buy comic books and draw the pictures in them.  Sometimes when a brand new line of comics was coming out the very first issue was number zero.  This being my first album, I could think of no other title. 

So there you have it.  I am truly honored to be able to share my creation with you. Thanks for the listen, I really appreciate it.

Good stuff, specially for a solo album. The first songs are the better ones, and I specially heart "The Devil's in the Water". To me that's the highest point in the album.

Hey, James, this is a great album. I was wondering if you would allow me to plug your work in my coming Podcast that shines the light on the indie musicians. I want to put your song " Devil's In The Water " on the podcast. Let me know what you think.

Awesome - made a video with your music!

You may have a look at my latest (noncommercial) video: I really love this song a lot since you've published it! ;-)

Encore une découverte puissante , à la voix saturé, superbe, bravo. Il y a des musiques qui font ressentir quelque chose et d'autre qui laissent indifferent. Avec 'a sound of travesty', je vibre.
