Behind The Lines
New podcast is up today. As usual you can find it over there –>. This week I am doing a vinyl album review of Phil Collins’ Face Value. I’m also featuring the music of two instrumental acts.
The first group is a local Hamilton outfit called Euphonic. They are a trio consisting of guitar, cello and drums. The music combines elements of jazz, fusion, and other more traditional styles, along with a contemporary sensibility. They have a concert on Friday January 2nd starting at 7pm at Centenary United Church (24 Main St. West in Hamilton). What the Folk will be joining them for that show. It promises to be a great time! For more info about Euphonic check out their website. Music by What the Folk will be on a future episode of the podcast.
The second featured artist is Phoenix Rising, a duo of San Francisco area musicians, Monica Williams (Flute) and Wendy Loomis (Piano). Their latest album Ascension is a 7 track exploration of meditation, and relaxation with each track corresponding to one of the 7 chakras of Hindu spirituality. One nice feature of the album is that the key of each track is one step above the previous. Meaning the album literally ascends musically. If you are looking for an entertaining and relaxing collection of well composed and beautifully played songs this is the grou for you. For more information about this popular American duo visit their website.
The next episode will be up Friday and should feature Max of The Mass Romantics.
