Some "new" news - February 23, 2008

Yes, SILAS too can fall victim to the shallowness of polling contests. And yes, it's quite like stuffing the ballot box...well...ahem...
At any rate "Revolution in my Heart" actually made the semi-final round in the AmerikanaAlt.Kountry Kategory of OUR STAGE. Check it out at www.ourstage.com and participate if you want to. Otherwise we'll see you soon. We promise ; )

Transitions... - June 8, 2006

can come with trepidation, curiousity and wonder. This Saturday will mark the debut of Joe Croce on bass guitar. As many already know, Stephen is leaving the band. SILAS wanted to let all you folks know how much Stephen Spatz has and always will mean to us. He is one great musician and human being. We have also, as anyone who knows Stephen can, appreciated and respected his vibe and ability at being human. Stephen has brought and shared so much with us. His association with SILAS began when he joined Steve and Todd in early 2000 to form Liquid Genie. Stephen's partner, Chaone Mallory, accepted a tenured tract position at Villanova University (Philly) earlier this year necessitating the move. SILAS wants to give our best regards and love to Stephen, Chaone, Solstice, Rohanna and Zephyr over the next few months (and way beyond) as they relocate. We wish for a future path of wondrous experiences for you all. May the four winds blow us home together in this very special universe once again
: )

Good luck and lottsa love always,

Todd, Steve, Scott and Sean
