Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Seven Layer Piano Cakes. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his way of composing songs.
We are faced with an eclectic artist who likes to experiment with music.
Seven Layer Piano Cakes likes to amaze and he has managed to find an interesting mix of ingredients capable of creating a unique and original musical recipe.
Modern and catchy music that has electronic elements in it but does not disdain the vibrations of classic rock.
It is precisely this ambivalence that makes the sound of this artist so interesting.
The chord progression is never banal and the listener is entertained from the first to the last second.
The production is excellent and in particular the mix that leaves the right space for each sound element so that the songs breathe well.
Add Seven Layer Piano Cakes to your playlists…it is worth it!

Seven Layer Piano Cakes is the musical alter ego of Justin Hoyt, a Los Angeles-based attorney and law professor. A new EP “The Patriarch” recently came out of the Bakery (Justin’s name for the studio) featuring three new genre-bending tracks that include elements of dream pop, alternative rock, classic rock, and indietronica.
Justin, a classically trained pianist and vocalist, was inspired to write, perform and produce music that is a throwback to the complexities and sounds of different prior eras. Not content to establish just one sound, “The Patriarch” seems to be a bouillabaisse of sounds, containing feels of acts as diverse as Queen, The Beach Boys, Thrice, Elton John, Beach House, and Sufjan Stevens. One thing, however is consistent with Seven Layer Piano Cakes, regardless of the song, you will always get some interesting chord progressions, dissonant tones. You’ll always also get some seventh chords, myriad musical layers, emotive piano and intricate vocal harmonies (the “cakes”). And hence the name.
