My Boy Elroy spent 18 months during the pandemic producing, performing, mixing, arranging, and co-mastering his first ever full length concept album, "Solace in the Machine," released on October 1, 2021. Elroy takes us on an incredible journey through the cosmos with a story of an unintentional pre-destined hero who loses it all (more than once!) and then must choose between risking everything to save the Universe from destruction and preserve the legacy of his civilization, or fading into obscurity along with the world he knows and loves.
The album is truly captivating as it ventures through the many genres of electronic music as well as cinematic elements, which coalesce into an epic interstellar voyage. “Solace in the Machine" is now available on all major platforms!
