Rocky Votolato

Over the course of the last 15 years, Rocky Votolato has produced some of the most powerful music to come out of Seattle, an impressive canon anchored by earnest, lyrical songwriting, and delivered in a unique indie-folk-punk style that has evolved out of the Pacific Northwest music scene he was raised in. He has matured over the course of seven increasingly accomplished solo albums, and writes songs that seem to have been scratched into a boxcar wall by a worn-out and lonesome ghost. He has recently finished work on his eighth solo album, Hospital Handshakes, with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) and signed a deal with both No Sleep Records for a US release and Glitterhouse Records for release all across Europe.
