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 solo toured the EU/UK three times and opened for disparate acts—from revered American troubadour David Dondero to Brooklyn’s explosive psych-jazz ensemble Sunwatchers to Epitaph surf-punkers Ariel View to guitar phenom Hannah Wicklund—see night in solo form retains a loud-quiet-loud catharsis despite the one-woman lineup. Bringing a record released by Pavement's Bob Nastanovich on his Brokers Tip Records, as well as songs off an upcoming release of pandemic-era songs Nastanovich calls "glorious," Linda is continuing to tour as see night solo in the states and abroad in 2023.
"The music is glorious"—Bob Nastanovich (Pavement, Silver Jews)
