When The Soldier Thread  stepped on stage this past Saturday night at the Music for the City Volume 1 Release Party and the lights started out low, I could tell I was about to experience an experience, an advanced performace was in store.  Each band member of the intense, yet coordinated quintet let the music move their bodies in a way that was slow and rhythmic, their movements becoming a part of their musical harmony. Complete with the viola and the bells (xylophone), a meaningful tone arises from the group that expresses real emotion, exuding a feeling of reminiscence and pensive thought, deeper feelings that I rarely see expressed on a concert stage.  Although contrasting to the sometimes lighthearted tunes we can be surrounded by, an intense emotion is projected from this band and Patricia Lynn, The Soldier Thread’s lead singer, who’s voice, viola playing, bell striking, and aura was so magnetic, I didn’t want to take my eyes off the stage between songs for fear I would miss her next passionate note.

For those long days or those times when you feel full of emotion and thought, bring The Soldier Thread into your zone.  And, if you are lucky enough to catch them on stage, I am sure you will be pulled in with the same awe-inspiring musical passion that I experienced this past weekend.

Sounds like: A more advanced, coordinated version of Evanescence, and the viola and bells will take you to a new audible place your ears maybe haven’t been before.

    So I was shopping at Banana R. in the Domain earlier this year and there was a random band playing there in the store. They were amazing, turns out it was Soldier Thread. Tried to catch them at SXSW but plans were foiled… would be up for seeing them in outside of a clothing store!

    […] scene.  Way to state the obvious, Rebecca.  But, I had no idea that my posts about Aaron Ivey, The Soldier Thread,  Alpha Rev, Matt McCloskey, and Courrier in last week’s self-deemed Tribute to Local […]
