Album Notes
The Thread - an ascension. Cadiz uses image conjuring language and sorrowful-sweet melodies to weave together the dreamy landscape of a "mental olympus", where your life and your problems can be seen from a birds eye view. Each track in The Thread addresses morals and ideals learned throughout the artists' lives, in a riddle of experiences and references to Greek mythology. "We took five Greek heroines and tried to prescribe our own experiences and feelings to their stories. Music is all about relating. Relating with others so that we are able to share our knowledge and better ourselves."

What is The Thread? In this case, The Thread has a dual meaning. It refers to a text message thread, but also to the thread of life that is spun by the three fates (aka the Moirai). You may imagine that the songs on this album are the artists' thoughts and feelings while communicating with the women (heroines) in their lives. But what this album really is, is a call to listeners to revel in life, and embrace the unforeseen and the uncontrollable. Many Greek myths teach moral lessons through the failures of a protagonists. In The Thread, Cadiz has offered themselves up.

Cadiz consists of two brothers, Anthony and Haden Cadiz. They grew up around the midwestern US. The first 12 years of their life they lived in Crystal Lake, Illinois where they were homeschooled and enjoyed the freedom of being able to choose what they wanted to learn. They moved from Illinois and spent the next 12 years in the Twin Cities of Minnesota where they began improving their performance skills. Haden went to the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists, and Anthony attended McNally Smith College of Music. The Twin Cities (Minneapolis and Saint Paul) have a talented and supportive artists community. Anthony and Haden performed for several years as the Cadiz Brothers, but later decided to drop the "brothers" to create a sense of anonymity and mystery. After they had graduated they both decided to relocate to the west coast where they not only continue to pursue music but also have a hand in visual art and design, as well as photo and video editing.

Inspiration for their music comes from an upbringing filled with exposure to art. Their father played acoustic, finger-style guitar when they were growing up. He sang them songs by artists like James Taylor, Bill Withers, The Beatles, and Simon and Garfunkel to name a few. Their mother took them to countless museums, plays, and performances. Shakespearian theater had a big effect on them. Both Anthony and Haden acted in many Shakespeare plays and spent time studying his scripts. Needless to say, words were a fascination to them. As 90's kids, they grew up on rap music and became interested in how to construct rap verses. Sometime around 2011 was when they began writing and recording their own music.
