Spirits and the Melchizedek Children began as the solo acoustic project of Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Jason Elliott. The band went through many iterations before settling on its current lineup. Their first album, We Are Here to Save You! was recorded by Ed Rawls (Black Lips, Those Darlins, Deerhunter) at The Living Room Recording in Atlanta. Their latest album, So Happy, It's Sad was recorded with Ben Price (OutKast, The Hives, Little Tybee ) at Studilaroche in Decatur, GA. The band's music explores themes of alchemy, mystery and the occult.
