Over the course of his storied music career, Indy hip-hop troubadour Sean “Oreo” Jones has rapped about everything from Reggie Miller to the Fountain Square Family Dollar. With his latest album, however, Jones turned a new experimental page, embracing solitude the only way he knows how.

“I was pretty much in isolation at that point of my life,” says Jones, reflecting on when he first started writing music for a project he would later call Michael Raintree. “I locked myself in my room. I was going through a really gnarly transition. Writing hip-hop wasn’t really inspiring, and it didn’t scratch that creative itch for me.”
