see night (solo)
When touring solo, San Francisco's Linda Sao distills the see night sound into a raw and intimate form: just a simple electric guitar, impassioned vocals, and confessional lyrics. The minimalist indie singer-songwriter set, still ever-changing and emotive, is all about connecting with listeners who relate to classic themes in heart-revealing songs and dynamic strums. Having opened solo for disparate acts—from revered American acoustic troubadour David Dondero to Brooklyn’s explosive psych-jazz ensemble Sunwatchers to Epitaph surf-punkers Ariel View—see night (solo) retains a loud-quiet-loud catharsis despite the one-woman lineup. In addition to stateside shows, Linda has DIY toured solo twice in the EU/UK, and is bringing the set back to stages as touring resumes in 2022.
