In 2016 Faultlines released their sophomore EP, Telephone Philosophies and opened up for artists Christina Perri and Easton Corbin, creating momentum toward playing more high profile events around the Los Angeles music scene.
Faultlines consists of members Todd McCool, Ashley Morgan, and John Flanagan - each bringing their collective years of experience from touring, backing up major label artists, and songwriting to the table. With musical inspirations ranging from Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston and Brandi Carlile, as well as bands like The Beatles, Maroon 5, and Neon Trees, this group’s brand of folk is a mashup of urban pop and roots country.
Beyond their captivating originals, Faultlines is known for their cover arrangements which turn familiar tunes completely on their head, giving them a new edge. Faultlines’ signature three-part harmonies fuels their aesthetic of eloquence and beauty. When they coalesce, they are all elevated together on a singular wavelength that has been reviewed as “talent mixed with voices that simply attract you and pull you to stay quiet and listen to each and every verse and every note.”
Faultlines aspires to make music that brings to life human emotion with tight folk harmonies that warm like the California sun and lyrics that speak to the gritty, universal interhuman experience.

We’re each of us only a point of light. It is in burning together that we light up the sky.
The way you are is the way you are to others. Perception is blind to intention.
