Living on an island in the Pacific Northwest sets a mood and a mindset. The music DESOLATION SOUND makes together has a unique sound that the band likes to call “Salish Rock”. “I’m fascinated with that beautiful place where the Salish Sea meets the shore of our island. It’s a mysterious, shifting boundary and I often draw deeper meaning from my experiences there” says Daniel, the band’s primary lyricist.
The band is made up of Friday Harbor locals Scott Sluis - Drums and Vocals, Darvis Taylor - Bass and Vocals, Tom Henry - Lead Guitar and Daniel Day - Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar.
The band is produced by Adam Kasper and assisted by Jon Auer.
