Shallos is the solo output of Mark Ukura. Started as a way to explore the recording process and experiment with writing that didn’t fall in the context of the other bands he was playing in, it grew into a solo project.

Epitaphs, his third release, marks the first time he had help with the instrumentation, enlisting friend Issac Rohr for cello parts. Using the metaphor of epitaphs might seem a little heavy-handed, but it seemed like the appropriate name to describe endings such as his father and grandson’s death, relationships, childhood and turning over a new phase in songwriting.
