ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's all about the music. Founded in Atlanta in 2004 Speechless is a unique combination of artists focused on wrapping their audiences up in exciting sounds. Drawing on an extremely diverse array of musical influences and an "anything goes" approach to composing, Speechless brings a unique musical hybrid to the table. They have a style that stretches across the musical spectrum: funk, hard rock, fusion-jazz, classical, metal, world, reggae and more - all are mixed with a healthy dose of excitement... It's the focus and centerpiece of their live sets and new cd "Time Out of Mind".

Although the music is as diverse as a multicultural festival, there's something here for everyone. It's easily accessible. Their appeal has been proven across the musical board. One look at the comments their fans have shared shows that they appeal to many types of music fans. Young and old, all over the globe. Groove and melody are the emphasis, along with ambitious, often cinematic arrangements that easily flow.

They are a quartet of bass, drums, guitars and keyboards who have played all over the Southeast and, in some cases, even toured the United States as professional musicians. The members of SPEECHLESS have all been long-time participants in the Atlanta music scene.

BELOW ARE RECENT REVIEWS OF "TIME OUT OF MIND"-

{CD Review @ Sea Of Tranquility.org by Pete Pardo}

".....Instrumental music, whether it be prog, metal, jazz, or fusion...working as a unit (the bands), need to replace missing vocals with something that will bring the listener back time and time again. There have been many bands who successfully made this happen over the years- Return to Forever, Weather Report, Brand X, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Dixie Dregs, Planet X, just to name a few, have made their mark by creating memorable music that combined melody as well as chops. Now we can add Speechless to that list of names.

While these guys obviously have the chops, and do drop in some inspiring solo moments, it's all about ensemble playing and creating moods and textures that stay in your brain for hours. Each (piece on the debut cd) features plenty of complex time signatures, ripping guitar and keyboard work, yet also moments of tender restraint amidst the bombast."

{CD Review @ Progressive Ears.com by Floyd Bledsoe}

"Time Out Of Mind consists of 9 mid-length track ranging from just over 4 minutes to one that is almost 9 minutes long. The music takes a modern progressive approach that reminds me at times of the Canadian band Spaced Out, especially when the funky bass lines kick in.

There are also a few moments that bring to mind the more melodic elements of California band Djam Karet. Of course there are some spots where the old 70s prog influence comes shining through from groups like Rush, Yes and Kansas but they're not going for any direct imitations of these.

Time Out Of Mind is excellently constructed and for an instrumental outing they continuously keep the flow interesting. (If you have) been following the hype that Sean and some others have been generating about this release, I can assure you that it's not just a bunch of talk. This is a genuinely outstanding CD and I feel honored to be one of the first to hear it. Oh yea, I can't forget the brilliant artwork of Will Renfro (Inkenstein) that graces the cover of this CD. Fantastic job!"

{CD Review @ Sea Of Tranquility.org by Duncan Glenday}

"Speechless plays hard-edged progressive music with a bit of fusion influence, a bit of symphonic rock, a bit of Yes, a bit of Kansas, a bit of Dixie Dregs, a bit of Return to Forever ... and a lot of heart, and no vocals. The thing that stands out most about Speechless is that no single instrument stands out any more than the others. They share the limelight in equal measure in the compositions, in the mix, and in the band members' contribution to the songwriting.

This record will catch you by the throat and for 50 minutes it won't let go until the somewhat abrupt ending of the 9-minute mini-epic "Vader's Boogie" drops you like a stone and leaves you panting for more. This music is alive and energetic. It is impressive yet unpretentious, melodic yet complex..."

e.monk

really positive vibe.
Prog rock hase a tendency to be a little dark, but Speechless really brings a healthy, positive vibe with their music. The monster musicianship is there without being overly pretentious. Their humor and good nature really shines through.

Ryan D.

each musician is talented and sounds well with the music
all in all a good cd and well worth the price. good guitar and key solos, good drums, and a bass that resembles les claypool at times. i am very happy with it.
