Album Notes
ACCOLADE is an independent Seattle-based band founded by classical singer Stefanie Reneé and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Goldstein. The band favors experimentation with different genres, yet always maintaining their signature dark, haunting melodies and classical ethereal soprano vocals. They released their debut full-length album, Festivalia, in 2012 to favorable reviews in both U.S. and European press. Their second album, Legends, was released in December 2013 as a limited edition vinyl LP, which also gleaned a generous amount of venerable press. Their music has also received a substantial amount of radio play on various programs across the U.S., in Europe and online. ACCOLADE has toured extensively on the U.S. west coast and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such acts as Unwoman, The Spiritual Bat, Legion Within, The Deadfly Ensemble, and The Crystelles (Featuring Gitane Demone of Christian Death).
For their third release, Catharsis of Rhetorik, ACCOLADE has collaborated with Sean Henry, an experimental electronic keyboardist/composer, to create a unique blend of ethereal electronic soundscapes. This release takes somewhat of a departure from their previous albums with regards to the subject matter and temperament. Truly a catharsis of past suffering, they abandon their usual fantasy matter for material that is more raw and experimental. This five-song EP is also mixed and mastered by Martin Bowes of the U.K.’s experimental legend ATTRITION. The band is currently composing new material with plans for a fourth album and video release in 2015.
