Autumn's Grey Solace features the talents of Erin Welton (vocals, lyrics, keyboards), and Scott Ferrell (guitars, mandolin, drums, percussion). Together, the duo create haunting, ethereal soundscapes, using layered guitars and soft vocals. The band was formed in Florida, USA, and began recording their first album, Within The Depths Of A Darkened Forest, in 2000, and was released in 2002. Afterwards they continued to record and write new songs, and were signed to Projekt Records in 2004. Later that year they released their second album, Over the Ocean on Projekt Records.
