Unfortunate Adventures of a Naked Mystic is Samuel Saint Thomas’ roots rock freshman CD release. His original solo project features a stellar cast of players and incorporates the classic sounds of Marshall Amps, Les Pauls, Gibson 335’s, and a Hammond organ. Recorded in original sonic spaces such as elevator shafts, toilets, and hallways, each track encompasses a chapter in Saint Thomas’ painful yet pleasurable evolution from mystic to carnal man.
