July 10, 2017 emblemAnnouncing: Soul Song Paralytic

soul song paralytic handbill 1Hey folks,

I’ve been talking enough about this lately that it’s time for a proper announcement.

This fall I’m releasing the 5th Saint Solitude album, SOUL SONG PARALYTIC, which is part of a multimedia project of the same name. It’s a collaboration between myself and Oakland artist Dara Lorenzo.

We’re going to share it with the world on October 21st, 2017 at the East Bay Community Space in Oakland, CA.

The event will feature myself and a band performing the album in its entirety alongside the visual pieces Dara is creating. It is all ages and free.

Inspired by the loss of a close friend, the project’s aim is to explore how it feels to grieve and to encourage a greater empathy for those in mourning, which of course is all of us at one time or another. The country and culture I live in is one very afraid to talk about death and grief, and this is an attempt to break through that a little and create a shared medium to reflect on it.

You can find out more as it becomes available at our mini-site HERE.

Also, we’re partnering with several bereavement groups in the East Bay Back to reach and involve those communities that this project is really for. If you would like to be involved in any way, shape, or form, we’d love your help pulling this off! Please contact me at booking@saintsolitude.com.

We’ll have some audio/video to share with you soon.

Dup and Dara

August 14, 2016 emblem10 years – and a sale

It dawned on me recently that it’s been 10 years this summer since I started labeling my bedroom and storage space recordings as SAINT SOLITUDE!

What started as an unaccompanied means to reclaim the songwriting obsession I had let lapse come college was, within 2 years, a full-blown project with a self-released EP and a handful of apprehensive solo gigs under its belt. By the time of the bittersweet demise of my band The Cardinal Heart (should’ve kept the name!), I was already booked for a 2-week tour up the East Coast – something I had always dreamed of doing.

Since then there have been about a half dozen incarnations of SS in solo, trio, and quartet versions, at least that many tours across the U.S., and a proud catalog that spans the myriad dynamics and wonders of all I’ve heard.

SS has always been a project for me and my druthers, but it was once my contribution to a scene: a small circle of fellow star- and shoe-gazers amassed over a few years of playing shit bars and drinking cheap beers in parking lots, laughing and aching much of the way, often at the same time.

In the 4 years since I’ve stopped touring, though, my music has felt increasingly bereft of a community. I live in Oakland now, and my first year here has been nothing short of devastating in the wake of losing one of my best friends. As I was grieving (as if that will ever only exist in the past tense), music was a remote idea, hardly tangible for the first time in…a decade? Instead of it being a confidant or secret weapon, like it had always been, it was an obscured ideal, out of my reach. I was desperate not to lose it completely, despite knowing it was almost out of my control.

Some semblance of clarity seems closer now, and I feel like celebrating and sublimating. As I try to find my liberatory equipment and a path towards a new album reflecting this last year’s journey, I’d like to shine a light on what a decade has created:

For the rest of August, I’ve knocked the price of all my albums on Bandcamp to $5 (EPs $2) and am also offering the entire digital SS catalog for a mere $18!!!

That’s 4 albums, 2 EPs, and more for the cost of one vinyl LP.

Click here to purchase.

half off sale

I’m generally averse to crowdfunding for new albums, but I see this as a type of back catalog Kickstarter aimed at getting me back into the studio sooner than later.

I know many of you have seen the videos and streamed the albums on the web; please consider a small investment today to help me carve out a new future for this project. I might just start playing shows again in return…

Thanks for everyone who’s been there along the way and to the new folks in the Oakland scene whom I hope to meet soon out at the shows and in the woods. To another decade,

Dup
