Born from a trapped mind freed by a muse, Falling Rain (also known as Faction) is the colaboration between Jeff Schweiger, a creative guitarist and music lover, and Matthew Neff, a young power voice with a way with words. The music delves into lust, madness, incarceration, conformity, self-destructiveness, love, forgiveness, and anarchy. Recorded totally acousticlly with no editing, it is the seed that both Matthew and Jeff hope will grow into a great band, whether they are creating music together, or apart.
Not currently, no. Very unpolished at this point, with zero equipment. Also the fact that we both live in different states ain't helping much. I'm (Matthew) constantly looking forward to meeting new musicians in my area of Atlanta, Georgia, and i would really like to join up with some talented people with open minds to create some rad music. Jeff is content to be my muse when we get to see each other, he helps my music side, and encourages me to continue down the path. I (Jeff) am looking to find someone in Miami that can sing and wants to get out and play live.
I (Matthew) have such a vast array of singers across a hundred different genres, it would be unjust to name them, for fear of forgetting one.
I (Jeff) have been influenced by such amazing bands as Radiohead, Collective Souls, Live, STP, and Nirvana. My other musical influence is in the classical arena and includes Bach, Chopin and Mozart.
Matthews voice, and Jeffs uses a 1955 Gibson J50 acoustic.
We hope you enjoy the music, and if you don't, tell us why. And if you do, definately tell us why! Thank you!
