Craig Wedren Announces ‘Sabbath Session’ Podcast, LA Launch Event & Sound Bath

Acclaimed songwriter, singer, film & television composer and Shudder To Think frontman Craig Wedren is adding another title to his already expanded resume: podcast creator. On February 19, he will release the first episode of his Sabbath Sessions podcast — a collection of musical meditations that he has been crafting since 2014. This new podcast will represent his first explorations of ambient choral music, where Wedren developed his technique of sampling and looping his famously elastic voice resulting in a unique kind of sound bath. Listen to a sample of the music found on the podcast here: https://youtu.be/wLUVnGrqiqs.

Sabbath Sessions was born out of the introspection of Wedren’s longtime mindfulness and wellness practices, embracing everything from Transcendental Meditation to yoga. As such, each episode will run approximately twenty minutes, providing an aural correlative for meditation practice. Read more on Sabbath Sessions here: http://www.craigwedren.com/sab-sesh.

Wedren sees the experimental, inclusive bent of Sabbath Sessions as uniting many different strands of his varied musical aptitudes. “Think of it as Smile-era Brian Wilson singing ambient Brian Eno—who is a huge influence–from Music for Airports to his fondness for feather boas; or shoegaze ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’” he notes. “My love of John Cage and Steve Reich is in there, too.”
