In late 2011, Erin Tate (Minus the Bear) approached David Totten (The Quiet Ones, Scriptures) and asked him to collaborate. Without hesitation, the two began to write together, finding spare time from their own projects to dig into new creative material together. Finding common influences in the textures of psychedelic and schizophrenic prog rock of the 60’s and 70’s, as well as the melodies of indie-folk music, they began to write songs containing a strange mixture of elements that was both strange and familiar. There was both riffage and ambience, wandering guitar lines and shredding solos, screaming vocal melodies and soft background vocal pads. They soon realized that they would need a killer rhythm section to fill out the sound, so they enlisted the low tones of bassist Eric Sturgeon (The Lonely Forest) and the handiwork of multi-instrumentalist Matt Benham (The Black Swedes, Argo). They call themselves Black Hills.
