Since its inception, Brooklyn-based Falcon has managed to find inspiration in some very strange places. In 2004, childhood friends Neil Rosen (vocals, guitar) and Shannon Ferguson (lead guitar) formed the band to bring the songs of their fellow junior high school classmate, Jared Falcon, to life. The catch was that Jared had ceased writing songs at age 13 following his institutionalization. Consequently, the only material with which Rosen and Ferguson could work with were dusty cassette tapes left in a storage locker in 1988. The band persevered and with the help of bassist Christian Bongers and drummer Jason Molina, they have recorded fifteen of Jared’s songs to date – including the highly lauded Falcon EP released in 2008. In Fall of 2010, Falcon’s first full-length record Disappear was released. Recorded during the preceding winter at Serious Business Music in NYC, Disappear was produced and mixed by Shannon Ferguson with additional mixing by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, MGMT).
