Eliot Roby is my brother, who wrote and recorded all of the guitar arrangements on Beacon. Often people ask me how it is to work with a sibling, and the answer is that it is both wonderful and difficult. It is an amazing thing to watch someone grow through music, and having the same musical history makes it very intuitive to work together. Eliot makes music as well and you can listen on his Bandcamp or Soundcloud. His music is ever-evolving – I see many of his songs as imaginative vignettes, often filled with plant life and colours you can’t quite describe. -- Tess Roby
