He Is Me: “Cleansing”

He is Me is a partnership with Portland based songwriter and musician/producer Casey Baunger and Calgary, AB based songwriter/vocalist Steve Moore. He Is Me is a mixture of sounds exploring a raw metal explosion.


Casey and Steve first worked together on a 2001 song called “Silencer.” When 2016 came, Casey contacted Steve about guest vocals on a track. Steve liked the song so much that the guys decided to make a new project with the intent of working in music they never worked in before.


Casey began playing bass at the age of 13. Once he learned bass, he wanted to learn any instrument he could. Casey has performed in several punk, metal, blues, industrial, and electronic bands. In 1999, he had his own solo project called “Textile Arcade,” where he was an audio engineer for an advertising agency.


Steve Moore has worked with prog rock/industrial metal duo The Unraveling (vocals, 2009-2015), down tempo down tempo electronic project Post Death Soundtrack (vocals, guitar – 2008 – present) industrial/ambient duo He Is Me (vocals – 2016 – present), and hardcore metal group Inner Surge (as the project founder – 2001 – 2008).


The duo have released a new song called “Cleansing.” “Cleansing” starts off slow and intense with haunting lyrics of “this house is on fire” and then segueing into a fierce guitar rock infused sound picking up the pace. This song brings out the deep, emotional raw vocal talents of Moore. Moore shows so much depth with Casey providing the compelling guitar riffs. These two have a splendid chemistry that works very well and compelling.


The guys are currently working on full length album. They have shown dedication and heart to their work. Looking forward to hearing what they have yet to come. More info for He Is Me is listed below:
