Superb Progressive Rock with a strong Melodic edge!
Progressive rock guitarist Jeff Green, who previously fronted Eagles tribute band Illegal Eagles, releases his second album called Elder Creek. His debut album called Jessica, which was a self-release, received fantastic accolade amongst Prog and Rock magazines alike, as well as many respected webzines and Prog Radio.
Elder Creek explores the concept of memory, its loss and the part it plays in our lives, the lives of loved ones and society in general. Using both anecdotal and mythological subject matter, the album raises the question; if memories define who we are, then who indeed are we without them. Many lyrics were based on poems written by Jeff’s father.
