ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The music on So Many Wizard's Tree EP is joyous. Straight-uplifting, unashamedly rejoiceful packets of beauteous and bountiful celebratory explorations. Each song - and there are 8 of them - is a tightly-wound ball of happiness waiting to burst into your ears...The music inside features guitars, trumpets, accordions, organs, xylophones, and more swirling sounds than you can shake a swirling sound stick at. Several of those songs (Madeline Nancy and Love is on the Way, specifically) recall "Preservation Society"-era Kinks or perhaps mid-period Kitchen Cynics. I'm Just Like You is not the Cash Nexus song "I'm Not Like You", nor is it David Bowie's "Oh! You Pretty Things", it is its own pretty thing - sneaky and relentless. The lyrics are hopeful and sincere and sometimes sad but always heartfelt and never smarmy. There is a humor and lightheartedness ("My friends are nice. They don't bite... much.") that complements the occasionally tin pan alley vibe nicely."
-Mark Givens (MungBeing Magazine)

"Indeed, the songs on last year’s “Tree EP” have more in common with the folk and pop music of the Cold and Vietnam War eras. You don’t even need to hear the George Peppard speech at the start of “Fly a Kite” to catch the wayback feel that few current artists achieve."
-Kevin Bronson (Buzzbands)

"The music is organic, original and makes me wonder who is behind the music. It sets me on a trip, slightly haunting, in their sound that makes me want to listen to it again. And Again."
-Vic (LoudVine)

"When thinking of So Many Wizards, think of adventure; the kind Don Quixote dreamed he was having on his valiant Rosinante. The music is simple and doesn’t try to assume anything it cannot handle. The beauty lies in its open invitation for collaboration and artistic contribution of any kind. There are no rules nor boundaries here…"
-Jay (PinkStreetJournal)

Playful energy
This album is packed chock-full of life, bursting at the seams with creativity and fun. It sounds like Cold War Kids meets Guillemots in a dance through the beautiful California sunshine. A rare find, indeed (and he's a very nice gent to boot).
