Musical beginnings

Knight grew up in Victoria, British Columbia. Prior to forming his own musical project in 2008, Knight was a member of the bands Maurice, Toco & Jorge, Vegan Holocaust,[2] and Counting Heartbeats.[3] He also recorded and performed with Hannah Georgas, The Zolas, Dan Mangan, Karkwa, Jeremy Fisher and David Vertesi.

Knight helped establish the record label Adventure Boys Club, with founder Tyler Bancroft of the band Said the Whale.[4] Its first release was Knight's debut album, Versicolour, on March 2, 2010.[5][6] Previous digital EPs include Hi There and First Takes, a collection of demos and field recordings from 2007–2008. Versicolour was recorded in Langley at Buena Vista over the course of two years with producer Jonathan Anderson of Jonathan Inc.

Each Other, released on January, 22, 2016, was created despite several obstacles including his bassist's health issues and his drummer leaving to finish school.[7] In an interview with Transverso Media, Knight explained the struggles, saying, "I think it just mostly affected my sort of - how to put it eloquently - just my thoughts on how to keep going, you know, whatever the future was going to look like. And that seems really dramatic for me to say that now, but at the time it really felt like, 'Oh, maybe I just kind of hang up the towel here.' We had already spent the time and already spent the money on recording it so we would have needed a bunch more money to produce the songs and release the record and all, so maybe we cut out losses?"[8]
