My Tulpa started when TJ Boudreau kept writing songs about death and love as he was sick of playing in cover bands. These songs are on My Tulpa’s 2014 release Daymares. TJ moved to Baltimore and took 11 months to finish his next album while playing dive bars around the city. The finished product from that time was an album called Misanthropy released in June 2015. Realizing he did not want to work in a pizza parlor his whole life TJ moved back to Massachusetts to go to school and continue to work on music. Shortly after returning to Massachusetts, TJ recruited bassist Aidan Cuffe and drummer Eric McEntee to fill out the group in order to begin playing shows in New England.
