January 18, 2009 All songs will now be free to download!

This weekend was POPAsheville, the only truly great rock festival of the year in the region. This year was the best it’s ever been. Heypenny from Nashville floored me with their energy, La Zoom shuttled everyone around in a big purple bus, and the mood was jubilant through all the workshops and shows. An amazing time, with so much talent bouncing off the walls. I was bummed I couldn’t be a part (no solo artists…) but my amp’s in the shop anyways…
This afternoon, as I sat listening to the keynote speaker Dave Allen (of Gang of Four) talk about the future of the music industry, I decided it was time for some changes.

From now on, all Saint Solitude songs will be free to download. I’ve seen a lot of¬†artists taking the pro bono route over the past 2 years and have been hesitant of doing it myself only because I’ve been unknowingly clinging to an ancient archetype for an industry that is rapidly evolving. Ultimately, I seek a broad audience, and that audience demands free music. Now you’ve got it.

I will continue to be selling CDs at shows, in stores,¬†and online- and that includes the forthcoming split EP w/ Charles Martel- from which I just posted a new song, “TOSABESATOCH” (pronounced “toe-sa-bess-ah-totch”). Drew and I are finishing that up and will be posting the details of release very soon.

Much more big news to come soon. Thank you for listening!!!
