One Long Year, 2020
This 2020 release is a concept album following the inner life of an unnamed protagonist throughout the course of a year. The songs start on New Year’s Day with new love and hope for the future (“We’re Holding On”). But by Valentine’s Day, tiny cracks begin to appear in the relationship (“Never Perfect”) and the darkness that resides as a seed in every heart begins to grow into a vine that threatens to choke out all that is good. By New Year’s Eve 365 days later, the protagonist’s life has unraveled completely.
When we began the project in late 2019, how could we have known what 2020 would have in store for us? The pandemic shut down our in-person recording sessions and we completed the album virtually. This may not be the most polished album of 2020, but it is honest music played by real musical friends. We think the world needs more of that.
So Far From Home, 2019
Recorded at Hope Studio with Drew Elliot engineering, this album features many of St. Sinner’s early hits: “Silent Star,” “Toothpaste,” and “The Deeper You Get.” We knocked out all ten songs in one four-hour session, giving this the energy of a live recording.
Rather than resting on the success of 2019’s So Far from Home and 2020’s One Long Year, St. Sinner has been honing new material live that will soon become the album Synonyms for Goodbye.
