Sol Seppy  - M/\RK

Sophie Michalitsianos (Sol Seppy) played in Sparklehorse live shows in 1999-2001 .she recorded in Good Morning Spyder, Distorted Ghost, and It's a Wonderful Life
now she is married with Scott Minor ("the second Sparklehorse") who played on almost every Sparklehorse tour and album.


  biography by

Sophie Michalitsianos, Wimbledon, London, England. A classically trained cellist and pianist, Michalitsianos grew up in both Australia and England and first began writing music at the age of just five years old. It was during her time in Australia that she was accepted into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music to study composition and orchestration. After graduating, her early career saw her working with a number of Australian bands as an improvisational cellist, but it was when she moved to New York at the age of 23 that she was approached by Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous to join the band on tour. In time this led to her contributing to Good Morning Spider and It’s A Wonderful Life, assuming a prominent role in the band, providing vocals as well as playing bass guitar and cello.
After her time with Sparklehorse, Michalitsianos set up her own studio in upstate New York and began recording solo work. However, when a fire destroyed all her equipment and material, she started afresh and began creating what would become her debut solo release, The Bells Of 1 2. Signing to independent label Gronland under the more pronounceable pseudonym of Sol Seppy, her first single ‘Move’ was released in January 2006 and was followed by The Bells Of 1 2 in April of the same year. Taking two years to complete, the entire work was performed, engineered and produced by herself and was met with widespread critical acclaim. This engaging debut combined looping beats, piano and cello accompaniments with accomplished vocal melodies and lyrics. Fusing styles ranging from classical through to alt folk and electro pop, the album drew stylistic elements from acts including Björk and Sigur Rós. The stand-out tracks included ‘Come Running’ and the second single ‘Slo Fuzz’, which was released in May 2006.

Swifts and Swallows Irwin Street End of winter 
You shoved away, boot sole and cinder 
We kicked the campfire  Walked the mountain down We got the call 
You took your guns to town You shoved away, all soot and boot sole today 
Said you were okay Isn't that what we're supposed to say 
You said that you were okay But not today Lay a track down and we'll go see Tom  
Here comes a girl singer But I like the song I'll make the coffee If you take the clip out 
You say your sorry 
Let's take the bike out Swifts and swallows arrive on Hall of Fame Were met by tribes of birds saying 
Things are not the same Since the branches spelled your name ...on the sky 

2010 (c) Angela Faye Martin


JesseSykes & The Sweet Hereafter Birds of Passerine

the band toured with Sparklehorse during the Dreamt for lightyears... tour.
You dream the birds of Passerine Where night calls past, every day serene You're free from the muck caught in the mire Born of light, stillborn of desire Some, some, they get away While others they find the will to stay And some thrive but are left unsatisfied The world won't let you go, no, the world won't let you go And still we had to cry For the space you occupied

Brock Harris- Empty Stable (Sparklehorse/Mark Linkous Tribute)   

this one was posted in youtube just 2 days afeter Mark's passing

Publicado el 8 mar. 2010


I was upset to hear on 7 March 2010, that Mark Linkous had taken his life the day before. This is the very rough "demo" that resulted. I may re-record for a proper release someday, but this is raw. This is inspired. It's what I'm sure many of his family, friends, and fans are saying themselves right now. If you'd like to download this song, it's yours. I uploaded it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?mlmqy2nurxx Everything that's made is made to decay But why now? And why this way? Could you see the light we saw inside you? Did it all become too much for you? Your broken gifts repaired broken hearts A soundtrack to life that hit like velveteen darts And you decide that your work here is done And you set yourself free beyond the moon and the sun Now there's an empty stable We'll hold it for you as long as we're able So sad that you weren't stronger Wish that you could have stayed longer We all want to know why And we'll think of you when we look to the sky One last horseback ride Before you gallup off to the other side Goodbye...
