Spellbinding and elegant, St. Solaire’s characteristic blend of soothing acoustics and subtle musical coloring led to a sparse and captivating musical output. Harnessing Geert van Emden’s compelling vocal qualities, the band has created an expansive palette of rich harmonies and well-balanced percussive layers that can best be heard on their acclaimed singles ‘Running’ and ‘Morning Sun’.
After winning the ‘Grote Prijs van Rotterdam’ in 2017 the band started writing their first album. At the moment of writing, the band - consisting of Geert van Emden, Jesse den Dulk, Pascal Konings and Tijs Kulker - is about to venture into new territory with their upcoming first full-length release, which will be released in March 2020. From a wealth of musical influences, ranging from Bon Iver, Radiohead to the early works of Coldplay, St. Solaire distilled their distinct sound: merging the intimate and personal within a warm blanket of alternative rock and sizzling indie pop.
Having proven themselves on stages like TivoliVredenburg, Doornroosje and Paradiso; or at music festivals like Where the Wild Things Are and Motel Mozaïque; St. Solaire has taken root as a skillful and heartwarming live band. Primed at presenting their upcoming/latest works in front of an eager audience and live up to the insignia of being one of The Netherlands’ biggest musical promises, they are currently ready and set to welcome today’s music devotees into their expanding realm of graceful, melodious sound.
