The Dawnseeker marks the debut album from Sleepthief – aka Justin Elswick – as one of the most highly anticipated releases in the world of electronica, with the enlisted help of a few friends including Kirsty Hawkshaw (B.T., DJ Tiesto, Delerium, Pole Folder), Caroline Lavelle (Radiohead, Loreena McKennitt, Massive Attack, B.T.), Harland (Ferry Corsten, Delerium, Human II Human), Kristy Thirsk (Delerium, Rose Chronicles), Jody Quine (Balligomingo), Kyoko Baertsoen (Lunascape), Nicola Hitchcock (Mandalay), Roberta Carter Harrison (Wild Strawberries, ATB), san.drine, Jerri Eckert (Desert Wind), and Lauren Edman.
Justin Elswick may be an anomaly in the music industry - a full-time attorney who has somehow found the tenacity and creative inspiration to create a lush and innovative e-pop vocal album under the Sleepthief moniker. Cultivating his deep love of epic, transcendent-style electronic / worldbeat / ethereal music and collaborating with his wish-list of amazing vocalists, Justin has forged one of the most breathtaking debut albums in recent memory. The expansive sound of the Dawnseeker is the product of two years of production and countless hours of lost sleep - where the end result is a compelling album that beckons to be heard. Engineered and co-produced by Israel Curtis, the Dawnseeker is sure to garner attention of fans of angelic vocals, sublime electronica and celestial soundscapes alike.
While there will certainly be comparisons drawn to other female fronted electronica music, Justin does acknowledge his predecessors and establishes his own unique sound on his journey of self discovery. Sleepthief has created his own niche and unique sound – from the expansive and exotic to Celtic flavor; from jazz & trip hop to full-on drum & bass – he's designed his masterpiece based on how he feels. People will like the music or not based on its merits. If fans of Delerium and Balligomingo like his music, great! The only thing certain is that Justin is a modern day Renaissance man with an impressive body of work wrapped in the Sleepthief package which speaks for itself.
'...soothing and out of the ordinary collection that comes highly recommended.' – www.blogcritics.org
'...aural nectar and sonic ambrosia. Yes, the album is auditory nirvana.'
'Sleepthief (a.k.a. Justin Elswick) creates music that tends to deviate away from anything anyone has ever heard. 'The Dawnseeker'...is a truly innovative album.'
