Astro-folk Bowie-esque rock with thoughtful lyrics and lush soundscapes.
NOTES
"War and the World", the unmistranslated title of Tolstoy's famous novel, is the inspiration for this large canvas work. A riveting commentary on the current geopolitical struggle, it showcases the thirty-year veteran of stage and studio's diverse talents from composition to production and a ton of different instruments in between. Honed on his popular U.K. tour, this unique brand of cerebral rock, the self-styled ‘Astro-Folk’ is brought triumphantly back to an American audience. The highly polished CD features a clever cover of Jefferson Airplane’s ‘Somebody to Love’, a breakneck duet with his well-known sister, Crash Kundrat’s machine gun drum tracks and a who’s who of female singers from local fave Karyn Oliver to opera singer Julia McCabe.
