The Scarlet Goodbye

The Scarlet Goodbye, labelled “the most unlikely mash-up in Minnesota Music History”, is the creative combination of Daniel Murphy and Jeff Arundel.

Murphy, pivotal in the launch of both Soul Asylum and the super-group Golden Smog, had stepped away from the game in 2012, after 30 years of recording and touring. A chance meeting with mellow Singer-Songwriter Jeff Arundel led the duo, whose careers spanned the same time frame but had essentially no other resemblance, to start writing and recording.

With the first collaboration, “Paris”, they realized that they were onto something, as Murphy shoved Arundel into a swagger, and Arundel tip-toed Murphy onto revealing some vulnerabilities. Meeting in an attic studio during the Pandemic, Murphy and Arundel fashioned a collection of songs that producer John Fields, who was brought in to mix the record, calls “both timeless and unique, part Rolling Stones and part Townes Van Zandt”.

Over 2022, The Scarlet Goodbye has released three singles and a video to critical acclaim, and has performed on stages large and small, bracing for a March 2023 release of their full-length record “Hope’s Eternal”, on Ingrooves/Universal, via Nashville’s The Label Group.
Stay tuned for performance news!
