For 12 years, Robert Stevenson was the front man, producer, and primary songwriter of British rock band A Silent Film. Stevenson will play the band’s hits and other fan favorites in stripped-down, acoustic arrangements.

The band broke into the consciousness of alternative-rock fans with its 2010 debut album, The City That Sleeps, and its single “You Will Leave a Mark,” which held the record for most weeks at no. 1 on SiriusXM’s Alt-18 countdown. The band followed up with Sand & Snow in 2012 and its hits “Harbour Lights” and “Danny, Dakota & the Wishing Well.” 

In 2015, the band released its eponymous album, A Silent Film, again achieving alternative radio success with “Lightning Strike” and “Something to Believe In.” Throughout, the band developed a hardcore following for its spectacular live performances.

After three albums, multiple charting singles, more than 20 million streams of their songs, and supporting tours with OneRepublic, the Temper Trap, and Smashing Pumpkins, Stevenson and band cofounder Spencer Walker decided to take an indefinite break to pursue other creative and personal interests.  

As a thank you to the rabid fan base, Stevenson decided to mount an intimate tour of the United States. The All Good Things tour will be the only time Stevenson will tour and perform A Silent Film’s repertoire during the band’s hiatus. 

“We hadn’t had a chance to say a proper goodbye to our absolutely wonderful fans,” Stevenson said. “So we hatched the All Good Things idea as a way to do that, given the practical considerations of Spencer not being able to go on the road.”

I Am Strikes is an emerging indie/alternative artist from Sacramento, California, with a lot to say and little room for shame or discretion.
