Today (May 26), alternative folk artist Nik Piscitello, under the moniker Level and the Square, is celebrating the release of his debut EP, From Here to the James. The six-track effort highlights Piscitello's innate ability to craft a song that is full of emotional regret while offering just a glimmer of delicate hope. To join Level and the Square in commemorating the release of From Here to the James, Diffuser is thrilled to debut the EP in its entirety in the audio player below.

"When I started writing From Here to the James, I had no idea how much I would grow personally," Nik Piscitello tells us. "These songs go way beyond four chords and some broken vocals. These are the songs that helped save me during one of the most difficult times of my life."

He goes on, "When I heard the first rough mies I knew this album would be something special. My soul, my heart and my life are in these lyrically, spiritually, emotionally and physically."
