Lover Lips is the musical project of Seth Mankoski, currently based in Portland, Oregon. Homesickness, memories of the Jersey shore, past romances good and bad, crappy day jobs, family and wonderful friendships with some very creative and exciting people, inspired the songs on this EP.

Seth hadn't really written the songs with the intent to release them out into the world. Some of the songs were written as gifts for people while others were made just to pass the time during what Seth refers to as "the winter of doom". During this difficult and particularly gloomy northwest winter, Seth began to forge an invaluable friendship with fellow musician Matthan Minster. It was Matthan who first heard Seth's demos and encouraged him to keep working and get the songs out there.

Seth took Matthan's advice resulting in the debut of this first self-titled Lover Lips EP. In the studio Seth called upon the engineering expertise of Jeff Bond to capture and mix the sounds. While Seth played a little bit of everything on the recordings, he relied heavily on talented friends, many of which are off making their own creative mark around the world in bands you may even know, to fill in the rest.

So here it is, the very first EP by Lover Lips. Pucker up!
