Former Cape May leader and Pale Air Singers member, visual artist and musician St. John celebrates the release of his third, Chad VanGaalen-produced solo album, The Minor Arkhana. His is an intimate sonic world, with songs ranging from haunting sound experiments to richly melodic, delicate compositions and anthemic foot stompers. Occupying the rare space between earthy and avant-garde, St. John’s music is born in daydreams, deep thoughts and the most intimate corners of an artist’s mind.

Drawing on her multifaceted, creative musical history playing in sloppy rock bands, with improvisers and also in sweet band and solo formats, Laura Leif’s music can be gentle, whimsical or gritty as she plucks ukulele and guitar or hits the skins and sings.
