Who is this Sahib Radio?

Some musicians lead the way and clear paths for others to follow... It's hard to put into words what Sahib Radio does to make his music a listening experience rather than merely songs that you can take or leave. If you 'get' his work then you are hooked & that's just the way of it. I'm not sure if it's the telling of his stories, in a voice that you know may possibly have lived through these scenes or if it is the atmospheres that creep up on you as he creates sounds that can make the music trade places with your mind and the colours there. As a lyricist it is hard to match anyone to these enlightening & challenging themes with poetic twists save one or two famed wordsmiths that hang easily in the genius catchment. This brings me to the conclusion that Sahib is a complete artist and one who deserves the title 'Unique' and will surely in the next few years earn the mantle 'Legendary' to go with it.

Sahib..no one tells a story like you. With every word, you disturb the innards of a soul with profound and uncomfortable truths that shake up the comfort zone of ones soul..thank you for creating such works
The poetry, the compositions, the challenging subject matter...and the almighty execution that only you do.

The music you hear sounds ethnic, but underneath there's this rock sensibility that provides the powerhouse of the music. An artist to be savoured, in heaped up doses. Highly Recommended!
The Future, Independent Radio Station
If I ever decide to get drunk on bourbon, hop into a 1960 New Yorker, and drive from Vegas to Barstow, and then out to Bakersfield to find the "Real American Dream", this will be my soundtrack. The song Cold Axe, off the album New World Senate.
One Angry Swede, OAS Review Board, The Big Show on Scrub Radio
Song Of The Week
'Bottom of the Well' - from the album LIONS IN A CAGE. I found the track to be almost mesmerizing - and worthy of several listens. Many of the other tracks listed are in a similar vein. I'd recommend checking out 'Hanging Tree' and 'Witchy Voodoo Woman' as well. I can hear the listed influences in the vocals but also a combination of Bob Dylan and Billy Bob Thorton from the movie Sling Blade.

Somewhere between Lou Reed and Tom Waits, Sahib Radio tells us his everyday life studys and connect them with a little repeating piano-melody and a whining guitar. "For a couple of bucks you can get a tattoo maybe even two..."
The song Dirty Seaport Town from the album Lions In A Cage

Mindawn is an online music service and a distributor for the music of Sahib Radio. Mindawn offers the option of both "lossy" compression in the Ogg Vorbis format, or more importantly we offer lossless files in FLAC format. Ogg Vorbis is a royalty- and license-free, high-quality compression scheme that is supported in many different players; meanwhile, FLAC compresses audio like ZIP compresses files -- it doesn't lose any quality but it does result in about a 50% reduction in file size compared to a full-sized WAV or AIFF file. What's more, FLAC files can easily be converted to WAV or AIFF formats -- thus you get a full CD-quality audio file that you can use on any media device, including standard CD players.
