The Blue Light Green Eyes, "Better to Have Learned" EP, was written by
multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Adam Oliveras, as a young man in
high school. Revisiting the songs years later through the refocused
lens of a twenty-something’s relationship experience, Oliveras fleshed
out arrangements and recorded every instrument on the folk-pop EP to
reflect both the young lover’s optimism as well as the nuanced
complexity of a seasoned perspective.
“There is still authenticity at the foundation of these recordings,
but now it comes from a place of higher understanding.” Oliveras says.
Equally at home in the warm glow of a summer evening as it is the
soundtrack for headlights revealing a winding autumn road, "Better to
Have Learned", has a decidedly visual tone. Each song is a chance to
leave the faster-than-light pace of our days in and days out, to
remember a world where love had fewer footnotes and life was a
cloudless sky of endless, wonderful, possibilities.
Starting with the piano at age five, Oliveras has been picking up
instruments, such as the saxophone, guitar, cello and harmonica, ever
since. He has applied his varied instrumental skills throughout the
many bands, projects and theater productions he has been a member of,
however, writing and singing have been his primary focus. As the
former lead singer for the pop rock band Miles From Home, Oliveras
entertained crowds from coast to coast. He’s worked with many other
notable musicians on collaborations including Zachary Parker of All In
Favor, Jaymes Dunlap of Lutes and Liars and Chris Matthews Jr. of
Jooniors Studios and Ruxton Towers. He is also currently working on an
electronic album under the name Tamarack Arms.
Blue Light Green Eyes, "Better to Have Learned", is available at
