All CDs, including last summer's breakthrough release The Princess Market, are now selling for the ridiculously low price of $5! There's never been a better time to buy the music of Solyoni. Don't let this opportunity slip away. We want you to have this music. Seriously, please take it.
In other news, we are pleased to announce that the Solyoni / The Kyle Sowashes Vanilla Clown split 7" will be released in grand fashion with a live concert on Saturday May 12 at the Mars Bar in Seattle. (See news blurb below for details on the project.) If you live outside the Seattle area and you're desperate to get your hands on a copy of this limited edition slab of vinyl, head over to the shop right now. We're hosting a Vanilla Clown presale so you can reserve your copy before they're all spoken for.
12/12/06 Exciting news! Solyoni is teaming up with Ohio band The Kyle Sowashes for a split 7-inch petroleum vinyl release set to drop in May of 2007. The single will be entitled "Vanilla Clown," and it is a conceptual art project of sorts. Several years back, Kyle Sowash of The Kyle Sowashes was visiting Seattle. He and Solyoni's Dan Lurie went to a Baskin-Robbins to savor some ice cream. It was then that a young boy ordered a vanilla clown, the beloved upside-down ice cream cone delicacy. With the most innocent and adorable voice one could imagine, the boy started describing how he was going to eat the clown. His words were so morbid and disturbing, Lurie felt the need to write them down in a pocket notebook. Sowash and Lurie then decided they would each write a Vanilla Clown song using the boy's words as the lyrics, but neither artist would hear the other's song until both were complete. Currently, Solyoni and The Kyle Sowashes are in the process of recording their respective songs which will be pressed on opposite sides of a platter sometime in the next few months. We'll be sure to post further details as they become available to us.
12/07/06 This Saturday, Solyoni plays the Comet Tavern as part of the Global Seepej Records 10 Year Anniversary Party! Global Seepej is run by At The Spine ringleader Mike Toschi, a man who will sacrifice life and limb for his and his friends' art, literally. He is an inspiration to us all, and has played a significant role in Solyoni's remarkable rise to fame and fortune. Toschi's annual Global Seepej parties have become the thing of legend, if for no other reason than someone always goes home injured. Please join us, and perhaps you will be the one leaving the bar on a stretcher this year. Unrelated to the promise of violence, free beer is always offered at these events, and this year is no different. The first 100 pints of PBR will cost you nothing, so show up early for some free cold ones and for Solyoni because I believe we will be the first to take the stage right at 9pm. The show is sponsored by our handsome friends at NadaMucho.com.
10/15/06 Thanks to the world wide web, and the U.S. Postal Service, the sounds of Solyoni have spread to the furthest reaches of the globe. Here's proof. We recently got word that a mysterious man living in the uncharted woods of Shadyside, Ohio took such a liking to the Solyoni tune "Pink Cotton Dress," that he decided to cover it. His name - Bill Albatross. His version - heartfelt. Please visit Mr. Albatross' MySpace page to hear his interpretation of this Solyoni fan favorite.
8/11/06 Thank you to everyone who helped make our CD release party a sold-out success. We were overwhelmed by the turn-out. Thanks to Ariel and Jeff at the Rendezvous and our tall strapping friends at NadaMucho.com for helping us put on the event. Touchdown Eagle, we're honored that you came out of hiding to share the stage with us on this memorable night. And let's not forget Jeffrey, who wisely took a nap during the show so he'd have enough energy to make two heaping batches of famous nachos at the afterparty. It was a glorious night, and yes, fear not, it was all captured on film and video. We will post a thorough page of multimedia documentation in our Visual Diary section soon. For now, just live with the memories, and the refried bean aftertaste.
7/10/06 Greetings simian brethren. After a fitful hibernation, fraught with night terrors and exhausting bouts of somnambulation, Solyoni has re-emerged cleansed and pure of heart, and with a freshly-squeezed album in hand.
While you're poking around the place, don't forget to swing by our online shop. We've opened our doors early so you can purchase the new album, "The Princess Market," today, yes, before the release date. As long as the store manager doesn't find out, we're cool.
Over the coming weeks we'll continue to update our newly refurbished home in preparation for the album's official release and also our CD Release Party on Saturday July 29. Visit the shows page for details on that.
Thanks for stopping by.
