The Needle – The sharp end of pain.

The Needle EP is a journey for us. Each member of s|s coming out of a season of pain. Or seasons of pain. One life, split apart, soon to be put back together. One family, grows and moves on, minus one. One struggles with the unknown. One struggles with the known.

nee-dle, noun, a slender, pointed, steel instrument used in sewing or piercing tissues.

verb, to sew or pierce with or as if with a needle: to prod or goad (someone) to a specified action.

As soon as we finished our first full rehearsal of Ian’s, “A Needle in the Grass is No Good”, I knew the next CD was going to be special. It was such a culmination of everything we worked through as individuals and as a band with the album, Inclined. Each of our lives taking different paths, but dealing and being dealt such similar hands. So we are ready to launch this new project. I hope that you experience it with us. I hope that these songs speak to you the way they speak to us.

This Thursday we have a practice in preparation for our next gig, The Eco Music Fest in north Georgia. I hope to discuss on camera a little of what this project means for each of the members of the band. I will be sure to post these thoughts by the weekend.

Here is a video of s|s performing “A Needle in the Grass is No Good” at the Summit 2008.
