My first solo album is now available. You can find it on iTunes, emusic, Napster, Aimestreet, etc. You can also pick them up at cdbaby.com or at live shows (I have them for sale at most shows).
The project is named “Daily Thumbprint Collection” and I can sincerely call it a 100% solo-creation (except for two sampled recordings of Sam Minaie and Gavin Templeton on the first track). I wrote it, performed it, recorded it, mixed it, mastered it, and did the artwork and package design. And now, I’m making it available to you.
More information and links to buy the album can be found at SNP Records
This is from the SNP Records website:
Daily Thumbprint Collection is a solo album by drummer Caleb Dolister. The album consists of several songs that have been worked, reworked, and then reworked again – some taking as long as 5 years. The initial sound is similar to that of a Downtempo, NuJazz, or Instrumental Indi-Rock album. It seems to be electronic-sounding, containing many ambient background sounds and fluid melodic synth-bass lines. But very quickly, the music starts becoming too unpredictable to be just another mix or loop based album… Many albums in the semi-electronic genre consist of live instruments played with sampled drum samples or loops. This album is the opposite: live drums. Approaching the album in this way seems to have given Caleb Dolister’s solo project a unique sense of life. It’s not just an electronic solo album – the life in the rhythms give it the energy of a rock album. For the listener – it presents itself very much like a personal soundtrack, but will surprise you with ferocious percussive energy and performance throughout.
