Three song synopsis:
"Moon Song" describes the light of a full moon as it casts a soft luminance over a snowcapped Eagle Mountain and surrounding fields signaling the first days of Winter.
"Western Sky” describes the light of a western sky as it sets on the beauty of the land.
“Falling Light” is an audience participation piece describing how the sunlight breaks thru clouds after a fresh Spring Rain.
These compositions are brought to life with an exciting virtuoso flair. Our intention is to transforms lives though the music we present.
Partial Concert Review: Fenix August 2016, San Rafael, Ca.
"The musicianship of this all-star group was off the charts...The songs ranged from more laid-back melodies to up-tempo grooves with stellar solos from Todd and Premik. - Michael Diamond - Music Media & Focus
