Burned at the Roots

Burned at the Roots is a vulnerable exploration into the process of confronting generational ghosts. It is a wrestling with the cycles of depression, anger and isolation present in Enoch’s lineage and his constantly evolving war with self to not recreate them. Based on the repetitive nature of fractals, Enoch uses a mixture of poetic form, raw creative imagery, and intimate language to delve into the repetitious patterns of alcoholism, heartbreak, and pain that ripple through his family tree as he enters a dialogue with self around the roots of his vices and the tenderness needed to heal from them.


Burned at the Roots is a necessary and timely follow up to Enoch’s 2017 release, The Guide to Drowning, taking the conversation from the objective world to focus inward on ways his personal world has shaped him.

“Enoch has put together an incredible body of work…Throughout everything his voice is really clear and I think I appreciated that the most.” - Rasheed Copeland
