Cloud Repair // ‘LP-1 Space Suits’
Beginning in the fall of 2016, Richard Wells began putting together demos of songs that would eventually become his first LP – “Space Suits”.
While living in Athens, GA, Richard wanted to create something where he would bear the responsibility of creative control. He began to challenge the breadth of his musicianship and ear as a producer and recording engineer by making an LP. Halfway through the project, he moved back to his hometown of Columbia, SC where he felt he could connect with who he was and better nurture the development of the album. “Space Suits” became Richard’s way of trying to embrace the space humans have to occupy and the bodies they are born into – without control.
A year since the project began, “Space Suits” by Cloud Repair was complete and ready to be shared. 4 singles were released in the fall of 2017 and the full album on 01/26/2018.
Cloud Repair // LP-2 ‘Traumatic Design’
‘Traumatic Design’, the second studio-album by Cloud Repair, examines life through a lens of trauma. Richard tries to understand his experiences from this vantage point. From conception, to a young child realizing they are separate from their mother, to experiencing a loved one die, feeling betrayal, to grappling with mistakes – dramatic moments often can be replayed on repeat and dominate our experiences. Richard attempts to confront and separate these moments that inhibit him from seeing life clearly. Even if this is impossible, Richard tries and as a result, discovers a newfound freedom. Sonically, ‘Traumatic Design’ advanced the recording and production process that ‘Space Suits’ employed with additional emphasis on voice and beat.
‘Traumatic Design’ is the second studio album by Richard Wells under the stage-name, Cloud Repair. Its expected release is the winter of 2019.
