James Alleman can't handle not writing music for very long. His first release, the 2005 EP A Surreal Hoping, is a product of that plus spending three months in Bosnia with nothing but an acoustic guitar to keep him company. He expanded upon this EP and released it again in 2007 with three new songs. He again added to the same collection of songs and in 2008 released his debut full album The Potential to Fill. He released his second full length, Small Small Seeds, in 2010.
