Expression Overload

by Michael Cannady

It's an earthy, mellow - then intense electronica instrumental Rock and Roll roller coaster- It's like an orchestra melded with elements of a rock band battling it out in hot competition within the confines of a large cave.

Album Notes
All songs on this album are comprised of a pleasant mix of live instrument recordings blended with elements that were created with computer software. It seemed to me that it took forever to put it all together. A lot is involved it the creation of a work of art, and I found that all efforts contributing to its birth are well worth the labor involved. It was a huge thrill to finally bring it all to a completion, and I sincerely hope that you get all the enjoyment from listening to it as I did in creating it...

Expression Overload got started around mid 2004 with the creation of A Saunter thru the Forest. This one proved to be the longest song on the album. Inspiration for this one came from many a pleasant hike through the hills and forests of Tennessee. Worldly Behavior followed being inspired from observations of the masses coming and going on a daily basis carrying out their ordinary everyday affairs. Then Journey to the Thumb came along. This one was definitely inspired from some wonderful backpacking trips to a mountain range on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona that resembled from a distance, a giant thumb pointed straight up. Shortly after, Celestial Elegance then Peace in the Nebula followed, both being inspired from countless nights of contemplating the Heavens on clear nights. Smoke in the Thicket soon followed being motivated from past trips to the Great Smokie Mountains in Tennessee. Vestibule of Immortality was next on my musical "to do" list and was mainly inspired from laboring at the daily duties I perform while working in the construction trade, combined with the laboring of the many different kinds of people I worked around. Serpent's Remorse was a fun one to create... There was no real inspiration that I can recall, I just kind of threw that one together in a relative manner, building upon it whenever I found myself in a mood for a lot of acoustical entertainment. Jeremiah's Wish was my ninth creation, and came about when I realized that my music style was starting to drift from the original Rock Roots that I once had so firmly embedded in my musical resolve. West of my Indignation brings up the rear and was fueled from the pent up frustrations we are forced to endure due to the conflicts and utter stupidity we face from a world that can't seem to just get along. Peace be unto you my friend! May your instruments never fall silent, nor your resolve turn cold…

Great stuff! Wonderful blend of acoustic and electric guitars and all kinds of orchestral instruments all tied together with keyboard synthesizer keyboards. Highly recommended after a hard day at work to kick back to with a good cold brewski!
