Airborne or Aquatic is the project of visionary guitarist Seth Bernard. His powerful songwriting is backed by Hoxeyville founder and luthier, Jake Robinson, Joe VanAcker's rock-solid bass foundation, the double-drumkit rhythm machine of Michael Shimmin and Dan Rickabus, and boucle, synths and guitar by Lansing recording engineer, Glenn Brown.
AoA shows are full of surprises- their unique, amorphous form and community awareness begets triumphant returns of past collaborators, guest appearances from many other Earthwork artists, and even spoken-word features from brilliant cultural minds.
In August of 2012, the band embarked on a journey to the Upper Peninsula to record the foundation for their third album in the historic Finn Hall in Rock, Michigan. SISU was released in 2014.
