Sea Wolf, Silversun Pickups Tour

From Dangerbird Records: "Sea Wolf is the vehicle for Alex Church’s songs – who is not only Sea Wolf’s songwriter and singer but also the band’s only invariable member. Born in the small gold rush town of Columbia, California, Church’s musical memories were shaped by ad hoc bluegrass outfits playing for tourists on sidewalks of his hometown coupled with the Beatles and Willie Nelson records on his mom’s turntable. Church wandered from California twice – once as a boy, when he and his mother spent a year living in a tent in the French countryside, and once for college at NYU's film school He wrote his first song the week he graduated from college and returned to California, where he later became the founding bass player of Los Angeles outfit Irving 'Even though I’ve always returned here, I don’t feel like the music has much of a connection to one particular place,' Church explains. 'In a way, it’s not rooted in any place.' That sound Church sought and achieved is a combination of delicate, arching melodies and foggy, elegiac narratives. Over the spare instrumentation, his voice can be weary or buoyant, but it’s always capable of leaving an indelible impression."
