Acclaimed songwriter, singer, film & television composer and Shudder To Think frontman Craig Wedren has added another title to his already expanded resume: podcast creator. Today he releases the first episode of his Sabbath Sessions podcast -- a collection of musical meditations that he has been crafting since 2014. This new podcast represents 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. Sabbath Sessions was born out of the introspection of Wedren's longtime mindfulness and wellness practices, embracing everything from Transcendental Meditation to yoga. He 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.”
