In Jan we went into the studio with producer Nick Bullock and made our best record yet! We can not wait to share it with you. We are working on the release plan as I write this and will keep you posted!
We did it! We went to production for the Project Leave Them Video on time, on budget, and with the best crew and cast we could have imagined. On Dec 2, we filmed in a beautiful location in the hills of LA. Shooting underwater presented all kinds of unique challenges, especially with gear, but the shoot went swimmingly (pun fully intended)!
We go to edit in mid Jan, and can not wait for you all to see this beautiful and heart-wrenching work of art!
And there are just a few days left to support the fundraiser for the project! Go here to support: https://gogetfunding.com/leavethem/
This is perhaps the most important project we have taken on to date. Ben has teamed up with director, Robin Roemer, to produce a music video/PSA for the song Leave Them.
Two of the nation's leading organization in the fight against sexual violence, RAINN and Darkness To Light, have joined the project as consulting partners, providing guidance and human resources as we navigate this heavy and vastly important subject.
This video aims to un-silence victims of childhood sexual assault, starring real victims, and working to remove the shame, guilt and self-doubt that has kept these voices locked away.
We have raised initial capital. We have assembled amazing team, mostly volunteer, and we have secured discounts on the film gear we need and the location. But, we need your help. This is an ambitious project and we are determined to do it right!
Please visit the link to learn more about this project and to become a supporter. Thank you!

We invite you to two very special performances by lead-singer Benjamin Doerr - May 21st and June 3rd on Bainbridge Island. Proceeds from the events will help fund a music video for the bands song "Leave Them" to serve as a part of a public service announcement campaign.
The video will feature survivors of childhood sexual abuse to put faces and a voice to a silent epidemic that affects one out of every 10 children in America. Benjamin will give a solo performance and discuss the project, which aims to break through the stigma to heal and prevent abuse.

Back in August St. Paul de Vence performed in barn at the idyllic Bainbridge Island farm, HEYDAY. It was a magical, intimate evening of food, drinks and music - all of it island grown!
The evening was filmed and there will be a release of edited videos from the performance. This is a little teaser that we filmed in the hay loft of the milking barn, after the show. Ben's daughter, Aria, hung out for the late-night serenade.

We’re shipping anywhere in the world, and we’re very excited to bring you this listening experience. Our LP went through a completely separate mastering process from the CD, thus it is a wholly different listening experience from the digital forms. And we think it sounds delicious!
