More About The Scarlet Goodbye:
The story of The Scarlet Goodbye is unusual, and has been called “the most unlikely match in Minnesota music history”. Dan Murphy, who was pivotal in the launch of two seminal rock bands Soul Asylum and Golden Smog, sold his guitars and amps and quit the game in 2012, in a letter published by Rolling Stone. A chance meeting at a Christmas Party with Yacht-Rocker and producer Jeff Arundel, led to the duo, whose careers spanned the same time frame but had essentially no other resemblance, to start writing and recording. Pretty quickly they realized that they were onto something, as Murphy shoved Arundel into a swagger, and Arundel tip-toed Murphy onto revealing some vulnerabilities, making for a collection of songs that producer John Fields, who was brought in to mix the record, calls “both timeless and unique, part Rolling Stones and part Townes Van Zandt”.
The Scarlet Goodbye will kick-off 2022 with a residency at Aster Cafe in Minneapolis, MN on March 17th, 24th, and 31st in support of the new single “Rosary”.
Jeff Arundel commented, "The Aster is a super-intimate room that will really allow the songs to stretch out and breathe. We are going to play it as a five-piece--Dan, me, Ben Peterson on drums and Pat Nelson on bass, and Pat Frederick playing violin/keyboards. Relaxed, fun, and we promise some special guests."
