"It begins when we cease to strive for the effect our causes, and simply open ourselves to one another to allow that which naturally gravitates to become one. That is the moment of creation. That is when we are born again in the experience of each other".
It was August of 2008, in the peak of a California summer, where a seemingly serendipitous encounter between guitarist, Alex Zigo, and drummer, David Lall, took place. While casual at first, both knew that there was something deeper waiting to be realized. In time, the band developed with the introduction of bassist Dave Sahlem, culminating in their first EP, "Lacustrine Dream". Though raw and unrefined, it laid the groundwork for the sound that would come to define them. Only one element was lacking, the melodic stylings of guitarist Daniel Escobedo. And after joining up with the group in late autumn of 2010, Scarlet Stoic was fully realized. Now, with their best work still come, the band showcases their acoustic culminations all around the San Francisco bay area.
