Coelacanth is an experimental, ambient and space rock side project by Chicago native Jamie Sarno. Known mostly for his work in heavy rock and metal bands in the late 80s, Sarno has been a vocalst, guitarist or both in a number of bands around Chicagoland over the years. Currently he is the lead vocalist in The Kelsey Harbor Blues Band, a traditional Chicago blues outfit.
"I need a way to share the other aspects of my musical interests," Sarno says. "The Coelacanth project allows me to explore some types of music that I've been really getting into lately."
While a fan of space rock of bands such as Hawkwind since his teenage years, Sarno is somewhat new to the world of Ambient music. "I really started listening to this [ambient] stuff just in about 2007. So, I'm not really experienced with it. But I'm experimenting with it and trying some things out. I'm enjoying it and maybe some others will too."
"It's a way for people like me, who like to listen to some trippy, weird music that can also be relaxing."
Sarno's blues and classic rock can be heard at www.reverbnation.com/jamiesarno along with some old recordings from his former heavy rock and metal bands.
