Flicker to Flame: Face on Water

New Release (2018): Face on Water

Bio / Band Mission

Flicker To Flame writes, records, produces, and performs original electronic music for both the devoted dancefloor fanatic and the audiophile enthusiast. At the helm is Ryan Goodman, the Ambassador of Flicker To Flame, bringing decades of DJ and production mastery into the fold. Rounding out the trio is Chris Anton (guitar) and Chris Newton (bass), who finish each other’s musical sentences constantly, and deliver other-worldly skills and sounds. The three have been making music together since the late 1990s.

The music fuses “in the moment” progressions and melodies over Live PA beats, improvised telepathic nuances derived from decades of playing together, and the styles and technologies of modern dance music, giving listeners a soundtrack for any chapter in their individual stories. In a world of derivative electronic music produced to a standardized formula, this group of musical brothers sets out to breathe fresh life into the homogenized genre with a new live electronic band and an instantly-recognizable sound. Listeners will gravitate towards the organic instruments and tones, including live guitar, live bass, live sax, live vocals, as well as those electronic beats and elements that we all know and love.

Flicker To Flame also welcomes innovative collaborators frequently, and performs in a variety of formats, ranging from solo DJ touch screen shows to full live band productions.

Flicker To Flame is pleased to have collaborated and shared the stage with a plethora of music legends, including Bassnectar, LTJ Bukem, Pretty Lights, Lotus, Big Gigantic, The Pharcyde, Mikey Thunder, Rocker-T, and many others.
