This year has been anything but normal and has caused a lot of anxiety and unrest for many of us. Most of our plans have been put on hold or canceled, and many of us have had to learn how to live in ways far outside of our normal life.

Most of these songs have been written during the quarantine as I've tried to find a way to find peace and adjust to our new reality.

The year 1816 is known as the "Year Without a Summer" because of severe climate abnormalities that caused average global temperatures to decrease. Summer temperatures in Europe were the coldest on record between the years of 1766–2000. This resulted in major food shortages across the Northern Hemisphere.

Evidence suggests that the anomaly was predominantly a volcanic winter event caused by the massive 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in April in the Dutch East Indies (known today as Indonesia). This eruption was the largest in at least 1,300 years (after the hypothesized eruption causing the extreme weather events of 535–536), and perhaps exacerbated by the 1814 eruption of Mayon in the Philippines.

2020 has been another Year Without A Summer.

The Humble Season Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Humble Season is an ambient music project created in 2012 by Craig Allen. I create atmospheric soundscapes with guitars, a myriad of effects pedals, and several other instruments and sounds. I'm a one-man band as a multi-instrumentalist and record, mix, and master most of my own music as well as others. The sounds created are an exploration of emotions, moods, and unspoken moments. ... more
