Rocky Votolato - Television Of Saints (2012)

In 2006 Seattles Rocky Votolato released a record of stripped down country-influenced folk called Makers on indie stalwart Barsuk Records. The album went on to be lauded by both the main stream and indie press, with E! calling it simply beautiful and No Depression declaring it surpassingly great. In the five years since the records release Votolato has toured the country nearly endlessly, playing everything from rock clubs to living rooms Along the way he released two more albums (2007s The Brag & Cuss and 2011s True Devotion), both also critically praised and well received by a steadily growing group of dedicated fans.

"Television of Saints", Votolatos newest effort, wears the tracks of those endless nights on its sleeve yet communicates that hung-over wisdom with a newfound lightness and maturity. During his time on the road Votolato has developed a loyal, extremely devoted core group of fans across the US and Europe that love him for the personal impact his music has had on their lives. Building off of and inspired by that connection, with this record Votolato has created something real, classic, and timeless. Hard won truths resonate underneath the concrete images and visual color splashed throughout the record

Teaming up with long time friend and producer Casey Foubert (Sufjan Stevens, Pedro The Lion) and with the help of an outstanding cast of musicians, including his brothers Sonny (Slender Means) and Cody Votolato (The Blood Brothers Telekinesis), Television of Saints delivers on the promise hinted at with Makers. Lean and to the point, Television of Saints is both Votolatos most intimate and most immediately accessible work to date.
