"The soft, instantly-palatable folk instrumentation is perfectly accompanied by Cimitile’s warm, whispery voice."

Builder of the House is the Portland, ME based Folk Pop duo comprised of Robert Cimitile and Elliot Heeschen. In 2015 the group released Hourglass, a four song EP, on sonaBLAST! Records. Two music videos from the album have been making the rounds at film festivals. The album marks the second release from the group along with their debut album I Am a Tidal Wave. 

Their music has been featured on the MTV hit show Teen Mom 2, Consequence of Sound, We All Want Someone to Shout For, Reverb Nation, SoundCloud, and the CD Baby DIY Musician blog. Their sound has been described as “a cross between Elliott Smith and Ray Davies”. The music consists of “great memorable tunes with super smart lyrics” sung with a “voice that is both instantly warm and appealing.” 

Builder of the House can be seen performing in Portland and around the Northeast.
