My partner and I shrugged off Thursday night's dew with the drag of seasoned Midwesterners. The drizzle that flecked our heads mattered little as Off Broadway's familiar vestibule came within sight sooner than we had hoped. As the day slinked toward darkness like a panther into the jungle's underbelly, we inhaled deep. We were feet from the day's completion as Santah's sounds pursued the night's attention.
Each year hundreds of musicians perform live in the intimate confines of the Magnolia Avenue Studios of 88.1 KDHX.
Work hard, make music that you care about and hope that it finds and resonates with the people that need to hear it. From an artistic standpoint, that's all a young band like Santah can hope to do.
Each month, this site features numerous photography pieces based on the work of the intrepid members of KDHX's pool of volunteer photographers.
Young and ambitious with the chops to match their swollen hearts, Chicago's Santah creates richly textured rock songs with delicate, resonant emotion.
Over the past two years Chicago's Santah has quickly grown from a ragged group of undergrads to a nationally touring band whose debut self-released record was picked up by a minor label and subsequently received significant positive press.
