Description
-------------------------
Over the course of the last 15 years, Rocky Votolato has produced some of the most powerful music to come out of Seattle, an impressive canon anchored by earnest, lyrical songwriting, and delivered in a unique indie-folk-punk style that has evolved out of the Pacific Northwest music scene he was raised in. He has matured over the course of seven increasingly accomplished solo albums, and writes songs that seem to have been scratched into a boxcar wall by a worn-out and lonesome ghost. He has recently finished work on his eighth solo album, Hospital Handshakes, with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) and signed a deal with both No Sleep Records for a US release and Glitterhouse Records for release all across Europe.

Hospital Handshakes, is a surprisingly positive exploration that examines themes of healing from trauma, overcoming depression, spiritual longing and finding what's really important in life. "I feel like this record was all about pushing the boundaries of what I'm capable of creatively, experimenting with collaboration, and finding a new environment for the kind of lyric focused songwriting that I've always loved," Votolato explains. DzTo stay on the path of a life in music I knew I was gonna have to find a new direction and step outside of my comfort zone. It wasn't always easy but I'm so excited about the energy this album captures and can't wait to share these songs with people."

Teaming up with a standout cast of Seattle musicians, including his brother Cody Votolato on electric guitar (The Blood Brothers), Eric Corson on bass (The Long Winters), Andy Lum on drums (Craft Spells/My Goodness), and Casey Foubert contributing Aux instrumentation (Sufjan Stevens), the album that will emerge promises to be unlike anything Rocky has released before. At the core of Rocky's new music is the same earnest, impassioned, seeking voice, but now with a little more perspective, the product of self-realization hard-earned from a period of darkness and doubt. DzI'm writing about trauma,dz Votolato says. DzA lot of the material I'm working with is dark and scary, but I know there is light and healing coming through in the process, and I hope that will show up in the music as well."
