My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer
Bewitching cello "looper" mixed like Ed Alleyne-Johnson did in early nineties but not on New Age way. Here it is as closer to J.S. Bach and his Cello Suite than Ed Alleyne. But the method is similar.
A very relaxing performance brings ears to nirvana by sounding rich harmonics from her instrument.
Siting quiet on a sofa savoring these sumptuous melodies taking my mind out of daily customs. This is what I feel while I'm listening to this album. Emmanuel Codden
This album hits my heart in just the right way. Such beautiful lyrics, and melodies mixed in with a collection of odd and playful tunes that conjure images of circuses and cabaret.
"Sometimes I'm in love with love, and sometimes I am filled with doubt." tf
