SUNS OF THE TIDE
Suns of the Tide is an experiment of the eastern philosophy of the splendor of NOW. It is an inspiration to have a leap of faith. This improvisational album is the final product of not two right minds but three not too right minds. Need to read that again?
The project puts three musicians with different styles and training into the recording studio without ever practicing a note together. This improvisational project includes Fletcher Stafford, with his vocal pipes and whining axe-stylings, Cédric Theys, with his melodic bass riffing, and DJ Lion-O, beat-dropper and ambient synth maker extraordinaire. They fuse together compositions without any forethought or preconception of the end result.
This album was created from raw emotions, open minds, and a lot of listening. The songs are from both ends of the spectrum, from slow sad songs, like "All Gone", to dance instrumentals, like "Dance of the Viking", leaving the listener sailing an ocean, on which the waves are controlled by Suns of the Tide. Dicing and slicing was on going for over a year until the album was released in April 2010!
