ACCOLADE is an independent Seattle-based band founded by classical singer Stefanie Rene√© and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Goldstein. The band favors experimentation with different genres, yet always maintaining their signature dark, haunting melodies and classical ethereal soprano vocals. 


"..Ultimately, this album has been about friendship. 


Our collaboration with Sean Henry has served to connect us despite our geographic distance. We had been talking about this project for several years, and we're glad to have finally completed it and released it to the world. 


Hopefully having this background will make the music more enjoyable for our current and future fans."

TO THE RETRO ROOMS  >>
For those people who remember Clackers, The Chopper Bike, Public Information Films, The White Horses and all things misty-eyed from the '60s and '70s.




Famous worldwide as one of the birthplaces of northern soul, The Twisted Wheel originally opened in Brazennose Street, Manchester UK in 1963, moving to Whitworth Street in 1965. Soul fans came from all over the country to dance at its legendary all-nighters until it was shut down by the authorities in 1971.
