Signal To Noise Profile


Signal-to-Noise is an electro-rock musician/songwriter/producer based in Chicago. Featuring soothing melodic vocals, intricate harmonies, and rich ambient textures. Signal-to-Noise draws influence from a diverse range of cerebral alternative rockers ( ex: Grizzly Bear, Andrew Bird, and Supertramp ) to create powerful and inspirational music exploring the complexities of human existence.


My name is Michael Downing. In December of 2014 with a bit of savings and the invaluable support of family and friends, I abandoned a career in neuroscience to become a full-time musician. Up until that point all of my major life decisions were based on fear. Fear of disappointing others. Fear of becoming impoverished. Fear of the consequences of not following the beaten path. I had forgotten that life is an experience, an ever-changing amalgamation of thoughts and feelings whose substance can only be defined by the experience. And so I seek to redefine my own life.

Starting in January I locked myself away in my Chicago apartment, sheltered from the winter in order to compose,record, and produce my first full length Signal-to-Noise album. I am proud to announce that this experimental indie rock LP is now available on [ iTunes ], [ Spotify ], and the official [ Music Store ].

New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
