Silver Sash is the first sign of life by David Eugene Edwards since the critically acclaimed Star Treament in 2016. The new album is the first Wovenhand opus completely written in cooperation with Chuck French, who is also known as a guitarist for aggressive Emocore outfit Planes Mistaken For Stars. Both know each other for ages. Finally they found the time to write this astonishing piece of an album. The music was recorded in my house in Denver with the help of our dear friend Jason Begin. David recorded his vocals at his house (which also happens to be 3 blocks away). The making of Silver Sash has taken longer than for any previous Wovenhand album. It took more than 4 years until both artists were satisfied with the outcome.
Over the last two decades, his prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world. The band cannot be described in traditional terms. Their sound is an organic weavework of neo-folk, post rock, punk, old-time, and alternative sounds. All coming together as a vehicle for David's soulful expression and constant spiritual self exploration. Sometimes sad and sorrowed and at other times uplifting, Wovenhand are always unforgettable in spirit and sound.
