On any given night in the quiet village of Freedom, New Hampshire, there is sound emanating from the century-old barn recording studio that is the home of Solo Saloon. This is where composer, musician, vocalist, engineer, and producer Christian Essex follows his auditory journey. His 10th studio album, "Without Space" (2022) is a pop/rock exposition of love, heartache, and attempted redemption.
Christian pioneers the musical realm with a creative determination that began in the 1980s with a dual cassette boombox and a junk guitar, continued in the 1990s with a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder, until finding safe harbor in his current modern digital studio wonderland. Christian lives a daily quest to further explore melody and sound waves beyond the parameters of traditional genre divisions. Christian is the father of two boys that he raises and homeschools while making home and tending the family's dogs, cats, and chickens.
