Album Notes
"The Last Cathedral" is Violet's follow up to their debut record "We Both Know It's Out There". Meredith Minogue and Jim Barry created Wine & Vinyl Music in 2001 as a way to release their records.

Violet plays modern folk. They live in Brooklyn, NY and record with a group of musicians.

Antonio Graci - Drums and percussion
Skip Ward-String and Electric Bass
Joe McGinty - Piano, Hammond, other keyboards
Leah Coloff - Cello
Claudia Chopek - Violin
Deni Bonet - Violin, Accordian

For both of their records, Violet linked up with producer Adam Lasus, who had previously worked with Yo La Tengo, Helium, Clem Snide and Madder Rose. Adam's studio, a converted 19th century firehouse, proved the perfect setting for the duo to craft its blend of the old and new. "The Last Cathedral" is a modern album that recalls the analog warmth of the 60s and 70s.

Robert, Rhode Island

I very much enjoyed the album The Last Cathedral. The band has a wonderful mix of folk and rock and there seems to be an influence with the lead vocals of Chrissie Hynde's. The instruments ar different and brought a smile to my face during many of the songs with the way they used them. The album is fun and even spunky in places. It led me to also purchase their first album as well and I look forward to hearing more new material from them in the future... Good job!

An excellent, fresh sounding album!
A wonderfully thoughtful album! Violet’s The Last Cathedral offers a fresh blend of honest and personal ideas, a plush array of wonderfully executed sounds, and a subtle but clear denunciation of low music standards and corporate influence. The album, rooted in folk tempos, seamlessly fluxes from vivid emotional ballads and potent vocals (check out the opening song on the album, Pilot) to funky and upbeat rock riffs (I especially like song five, Fill You In).
Cathedral structures its innovative interpretation of traditional genres with a time-honored grounding in drums, percussion, and both acoustic and electric guitar; however, it explores the expression available from a range of other instruments (listen for the diversity and depth in Don’t Let Me Down Again), and powerful lyrics (again, Fill You In rocks).
I very sincerely recommend this album, and hope that everyone can appreciate the musical integrity Violet dares to exhibit in today’s market of corporate artists. It’s so nice to hear real music for a change!

Incredibly pure music must come only from truly pure spirits. And Violet comes through on this album leaving the listener wanting more. An utmost pleasure to visit to The Last Cathedral...

A pure and honest indie sound
If this album has to be categorized, then this is what true indie is all about folks. There exist such harmonious and complimentary flavors on The Last Cathedral, such as the bittersweet folk sound of "Sweetest Memories" and the pure rock drive of "Fill You In". On the one hand you have an album that resounds with such an underlying simplicity of Violet's bare-naked honesty. Yet at the same time The Last Cathedral resonates with the songwriters' life experiences infused with their cosmic wisdom that any listener can easily tap into. The Last Cathedral is such a balanced album, from sounds and arrangements to lyrics and expressions. It is completely pure and honest - you can't help but keep it on repeat.

Dree from New York

When life gets too noisy and silence is not the answer, listen to Violet's The Last Cathedral. It will nourish you with its sometimes disturbing, but at the same time always soothing, dephts - in both lyrics and sound. If only more music was this inspiring!
