Long Story music is also on iTunes and Amazon.
Long Story admire The Beatles, Abbey Road, best of all but also a lot of rock and progressive rock.
Due to this and unsurprisingly, Long Story are heavily influenced by this. Not main stream and sometimes bordering on the avant garde, Long Story do have a unique sound that is hard to categorise.
With a classic rock approach and dream like sound, Long Story's music is soft and melodic, combining it with thoughtful lyrics.
Other influences include Progressive Rock, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Traffic. The album, The Court Of The Crimson King a particular favourite.
Wanting to be different it's not commercial, sometimes raw sometimes soft. With this in mind, it makes for some diverse music.
Alternative, rock, avant garde, pop, electronic, a little jazz and orchestral are all genres that Long Story have touched in some way. Eclectic maybe the best way to sum up.
Looking back to create something new is very much the inspiration.
Love and peace.
