After a long winter, we are ready for some Sunshine and some Live Music!

We have more audio & video on the way, and William and I have been taking advantage of all those snowy days writing some sweet new songs. (And if you haven't heard our version of Doin' Time yet, what are you waiting for?! Head on over to the Music page and check it out!)

We are busy booking Solessin for the spring and summer - check back soon for updates to our website and calendar... See you at a show soon!

We are very excited to be a part of the Artistree Festival next week!

Then we're going to head on over to Belmont House of Smoke and Solessin will be playing as a full band at 10:00 PM (doors open at 9:00 PM). Stick around for your bluegrass fix with Brackish Water Jamboree at 11:30 PM. We're going to get this festival weekend off to a rockin' start!

The Artistree Festival takes place in Norfolk, October 23 - 25, 2014.

Over 100 local, regional & national bands are performing at indoor and outdoor venues in Downtown Norfolk. Local film makers will enjoy the spotlight this year as well with film screenings. In addition to the various forms of entertainment the weekend will offer, Artistree Festival will also feature education panels on topics such as record labels, screen printing, live sound, and music education.

Artistree is working with Music 4 More to collect instrument donations and bring them to deserving local school music programs. This year, Norfolk's Chesterfield Elementary, Blair Middle School and Granby High School will be recipients of these initiatives.

Music education and the arts in our schools is a cause near and dear to our hearts. All of Solessin's members are teachers and very passionate about music education. We are active in promoting arts education and are very happy to be a part of such a fantastic event!

Great entertainment for a great cause!

Advanced tickets are still available - $15 for the whole weekend. Tickets are $25 at the door.
Please see Artistree's website:  for information on ticket sales.

It's going to be an awesome night - hope to see you there!



Thursday October 23 Schedule


So, Solessin...You may be wondering what that means, and maybe even how to say it!

Solessin means "Disappear into the Sun" a loose, I took 7 years of Latin a long time ago, kind of way. It is pronounced: \ˈsōl ˈe-sən\

We're excited to have a few recordings going up today! Come Together and Angel from Montgomery. Go have a listen!
