sanc·tu·ar·y

/ˈsaNGk(t)SHəˌwerē/:

1. A place of refuge or safety.

2. A holy place. 

 

A word that has fascinated me for years. A word I've spoken in poems past and written into countless others never released to the public. At the beginning of this year, I sought my own sort of sanctuary in cities whose pride is rooted in offering exactly that to whomever claimed it inside of their borders.

 

This Sanctuary 7" vinyl release features two tracks: ANXIETY and Sanctuary Cities.

 

I wrote both of them during that trip – one that felt like a shot in the dark, or a cry for help, or a cloud – and they are inextricably connected to one another. They are pieces that grew from soil tilled in the pain of searching, and the joy of those glimpses of freedom that come from walking alone along the Embarcadero in San Francisco, California or the streets of Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. 

 

They represent a dichotomy.

 

Paralysis and movement.

Fear and courage.

Despair and hope. 

 

I am so excited to share them with you.

 

This is a limited release. We are pressing 500 copies of the Sanctuary 7" on vinyl, and when they are gone, they are gone. There will not be a second release. We will never press them again. 

 
 

 

 

i hid myself in the cleft of northwest sanctuary cities, searching memories for rest...
