Known for his work fronting the enigmatic rock band Pedro the Lion, David Bazan’s emotionally charged narratives, eye for telling detail, and mournful voice have more in common with J.D. Salinger's ""Nine Stories"" or Flannery O'Connor's ""Wise Blood"" than with the usual lyrical slant of popular music. Bazan is a gifted storyteller, weaving parables of spiritual conflict, suburban ennui, and personal surrender into magnetic, well-crafted songs.

Bazan’s solo debut EP fewer moving parts finds the beloved Seattle songwriter roaring back to his creative roots, performing and recording everything himself in his home studio, while still expanding his sonic canvas. His signature songwriting, voice, and melodies are framed in layered harmonies, multi-tracked guitars, analog keyboards, and intricate production. The 10-song EP presents five new Bazan songs, each recorded in both stripped-down acoustic and full instrumentation forms.

Bazan is currently on tour opening for Ben Gibbard and plans to hit the road again this fall for a headlining tour of the US. After wrapping up the tour, Bazan will head into the studio where we will begin work on a new full-length record, tentatively scheduled for an early 2008 release.
