Tony Sly Sad Bear on LP

Tony Sly continues to illustrate his songwriting prowess with the release of his second full-length solo album, Sad Bear. Tony's somewhat recent foray into recording as a solo artist has proven to be every bit as fruitful as his 20+ years fronting the legendary punk band No Use For A Name. On his own, Tony trades in the signature electric guitars and aggressive rhythms of NUFAN for a more subdued approach, featuring acoustic instruments and highlighted by his captivating melodies. Sad Bear notes a strong progression from Tony's first solo outing with an increased emphasis on varied instrumentation that, while robust, somehow delicately plays off Tony's soothing vocals. As a master of transcribing personal experiences and bemusements into transcendent verse, the lyrical content of Sad Bear is nothing short of poetic.

The songs range from folk to pop, with many genre defying moments in between, but are all sewn together seamlessly with the common thread of innovative and dexterous craftsmanship. Sad Bear serves as a prism that reflects the spectrum of Tony's songwriting influences including such varied artists as The Beatles, Iron and Wine, Coner Oberst and Elliot Smith. To further develop the aural layers of the album, Tony utilizes the vocal capabilities of Karina Denike (Dance Hall Crashers) and Joey Cape (Lagwagon) to complement his own. As a whole, the intriguing and unforgettable songs on Sad Bear are a triumphant next step in Tony Sly's burgeoning solo career.
