Presenting Salon Style

Posted on March 09, 2009 by Collar City Records

Our first exclusive free digital release is Gaven Richard’s new project, Salon Style. Some folks will recognize Gaven’s trademark songwriting style within these new recordings, yet this is quite a 180 degree turn from his previous output. Here’s what Gaven had to say about Salon Style:

My name is Gaven Richard and I perform and record under the name Salon Style. The music is sample based – loops are pulled from a broad range of genres then left alone, exposed, repeating themselves in a state of shock. The austerity of the music cedes focus to the singing, a generally plaintive keen with a wry undertone. Lyrics are mini-narratives that meld country’s obsession with quotidian detail and metal’s macabre fantasies.

Salon Style will be appearing this Friday night (3/13) at the dual CD release show for Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned and The Red Lions at Valentine’s in Albany, NY. Show starts at 8pm and also features We Are Jeneric.
