A night of evocative and serene experimental music featuring artists that will transport you to other worlds! Small Sur releases his fifth full-length album Attic Room, accompanied by Outer Spaces, and more.
Since 2005, Baltimore-based songwriter Bob Keal has released and performed music as Small Sur alongside a rotating cast of musicians. Keal has always been elusive–touring only occasionally, self-releasing the majority of his full-length records, and rarely throwing elbows in the attention economy. Despite this relative obscurity, his unique and understated songwriting has been hailed as “recuperative” (PopMatters), “stoic, dark, and exuberant” (Tiny Mix Tapes), and “serene minimalism [which] conjures large expanses of natural landscapes at their most beautiful” (NPR). His songwriting tends to speak the language of the natural world, and it is this relationship to nature which informed his work on Attic Room. For this very special album release, Keal will be performing alongside guests Ahren Buchheister (pedal steel) and Cara Beth Satalino of Outer Spaces (backing vocals), as well as longtime collaborators Steve Hefter (keys), Will Ryerson (bass), Austin Stahl (drums), and more TBA.
Sometimes solo, sometimes with friends, Outer Spaces is the chosen moniker for the indie-folk project of Cara Beth Satalino. Through introspective songwriting, she finds meaning in the world around her, exploring themes of transition, transformation and self-acceptance.
