We're so happy to share that Boy Rex (Jack M. Senff of Knola, William Bonney, Merchant Ships) has joined the Skeletal Lightning family!

We're releasing his new album, Live! from the Far-Away, which is available for pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp right now, and will be coming to all the cool digital spots (Spotify, Apple Music, etc) on Feb 16th. A special CD pressing will be available on Boy Rex's upcoming tour dates and will be put online following the tour.

Learn more about & listen to the album below. Catch Boy Rex on tour soon (details below)!

Boy Rex is the exploratory abstraction of singer/songperson Jack M. Senff. Combining the sonic elements of folk, pop, and independent rock, Senff takes aim and observation at the colorful minutia of moments past, present, future.

Over the last decade he has been a part of numerous musical endeavors, from cult Midwest screamo band William Bonney, to Skeletal Lightning’s own Knola. Though honest songwriting has always been a penchant of his projects, Boy Rex is at once the most intimate and intentional.

WithLive! from the Far-Away, Senff provides resolution to the sounds and ideas of 2016’sThe Bloodmonths (Soft Speak Records) and 2017’sBetter Vision(Near Mint), while opening the door to a new palate of tones and textures.

Under the collaboration of his closest and most talented friends, and the indelible production of engineer Matt Riefler,Live! from the Far-Awayoffers a compelling tribute to the wonder and mystery of love, and doubt, exploring what it means to be alive in the here and now.

Senff lives in the paradise of Traverse City, Michigan with his wife and best friend, the artist Em Randall. He is already hard at work on the next Boy Rex album.
