News & Reviews

  • Rostam, in celebration of the three-year anniversary of his Nonesuch debut, Half-Light, has released an acoustic version of the album's title track. The song, which was originally released as part of a compilation album benefitting Fair Fight, features Rostam solo and multi-tracked on guitar, drums, piano, hammond organ, and bass.

  • Rostam, whose solo debut album, Half-Light, was released on Nonesuch in September 2017, celebrated the album's anniversary with a show at the Fonda Theatre in LA last September. He has released a video from that night of a special extended version of the album's title track, performed with a string quartet. Each group member takes a solo turn that quotes from a famous melody, including the Gaelic tune " Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór," Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," the Shaker song "Simple Gifts," and Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights." You can watch it here.
