Stephen Dorocke is a sound artist and improvisor based in Chicago, Illinois. Primarily a steel guitarist, he has performed and recorded with the Handsome Family and Freakwater, among other groups, while still maintaining a boundless curiosity for less familiar spheres of sound, which have inspired his innovations in recent years with a metal-bodied resophonic, or resonator, guitar. The recordings featured on this release highlight as much the unique and broad tonal qualities of the instrument itself as they do Dorocke's keen ear and musical sensibility.
