Sweet Gum Tree is the name given to the solo work of Loire-Valley based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Arno Sojo. Taking his poetic material on a cinematic journey through Europe’s art-rock lineage, he’s released several albums and EPs over a decade, collaborating with such luminaries as Isobel Campbelle, Heather Nova , Earl Harvin (Tindersticks), Marty Willson-Piper (The Church) and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies). With his smoky, sensual voice and romantic presence, Sojo embodies a distinctive kind of elegance which led critics to draw flattering comparisons, from Elliott Smith to David Sylvian or Nick Cave. Cultivating his own aesthetic and meaning to update the signifiers of guitar-based music, he sustains Alex Chilton’s belief that ‘‘Every existing song, recorded or played live on stage, even just once, is a victory’’.
