The Boy Who Spoke Clouds is the moniker of composer/multi-instrumentalist, Adam Casey. ‘Prayers to Not Knowing’ was recorded during the same sessions as the debut album (excepting ‘Relief’ which was recorded on a voice memo machine as a quick improvised sketch in 2008 and ‘The Golden Woman Behind the Sun’ which was also recorded in 2008). Adam likes to think of the ‘Prayers to Not Knowing’ EP as the sister recording to the debut (self titled) album which Sun Sea Sky Productions released in 2009.

Most of the material on ‘Prayers to Not Knowing’ was recorded through 2004-2005 at a beach house over a four month period without the potential for release in mind. All the songs were recorded, out of necessity, via the microphone of a Sony handycam video Hi8 into a cheap sound card.

On this EP, Adam sings predominantly of death, transitions, and one’s engagement with the mystery before the answer or question arise. "My fascination with things in-between, the shadows between the branches, have crept into these songs. The songs are like little invocations, prayers to not knowing."

This CD was originally made to commemorate The Boy Who Spoke Clouds 2009 summer tour across the Northeast of the USA and Southern Canada. Adam is very pleased to see it made available once more.
