Sound Society - Dietrich Strause

Dietrich Strause's songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) Strause is set to release his new album How Cruel That Hunger Binds on August 26th, produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), the next benchmark in his steady evolution as one of the most eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. This unique release show, the first in the Sound Society at OBERON series, will be feature Strause leading his band through the new album top to bottom, incorporating video projections and a spoken-word DJ. A strident romantic. Incisive lyricist. Charismatic performer. Adventuresome multi-instrumentalist. Mischievous charmer. Timeless gentleman. And patient observer. How Cruel That Hunger Binds is the clearest reflection of Strause as an artist to date. With each song being its own weight in a balance of clever charm and poetic devastation, it's fulfilled by the mid-century pop sounds of brass, guitars, and Orbison-esque orchestrations.
