The SCA is proud to present our first Creator Crossover concert happening on July 15th at Ballard Homestead! Creator Crossover is a program that inspires creatives of differing disciplines to collaborate for a live recorded concert produced by the SCA. Earlier this year, we gave 6 songwriters the opportunity to work with 6 arrangers to elevate their original songs with the addition of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and percussion (courtesy of the Townsend’s Solitaire ensemble), and you won’t want to miss the results of their work!
More about Townsend’s Solitaire:
“Bobby Odle, a Seattle based singer-songwriter performing under the moniker Townsend’s Solitaire, is a classically trained percussionist turned folk musician.
Whilst living in Ashland, Oregon, faced with completing a master’s degree in percussion performance, as well as a worldwide pandemic, Townsend’s Solitaire turned his creative eye towards poetry and songwriting. Drawing heavy influence from artists like The Tallest Man on Earth, Adrianne Lenker, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens – Townsend’s Solitaire prioritizes and treasures genuinity above all else. His music is primarily fingerstyle acoustic guitar paired with a single vocal line singing lyrics addressing common anxieties, loss, and a love for life in this world – all the while drenched in a somber melancholy and nostalgia. His ensemble has mixtures of cello, violin, flute, clarinet, and piano.”
