Sorry folks, this is a private cd release party. If you didn’t get your tickets yet, it’s too late, they are all sold out. Join us tomorrow for Irish Music Night.
In 2008, Troy Keiper began producing solo recordings under the moniker of “There Is No Sin in My Body.” The result was an eponymously titled CD in 2009. Its stripped-down instrumentation and dense song structures quickly developed a following and the limited edition release sold out within weeks of its release.
Comparisons seem easy at first– Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, Damien Rice — but the darker subjects and jarringly intimate lyrics belie Keiper’s writing background.
Originally from the Pennsylvania/New Jersey area, the former skate punk and guitarist of rock band Einstein Cried Fear, grew up on a steady diet of classical, punk and 70s operatic rock. A multi-instrumentalist, he learned drums and guitar from two of the legends of the Delaware Water Gap jazz scene, Butch Tucker and Marty Wilson.
The coming CD, We Are Revealed, was recorded at Busted Barn Studio in Portland. It will feature the addition of guitarist Pete Morse and singer Leslie Dean.
