ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With his sixth full-length instrumental release in just four years, The Man From RavCon invites you along for another sonic journey, upwards...

Featuring guitar, Mellotron, Hammond Organ and classic synths, the nine instrumentals that support Skyscraper are built upon an atmospheric, but solid amalgamation of Psych/Prog/Spaghetti Western/Spy Rock. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd, early King Crimson and early Moody Blues to Ennio Morricone and the melodic film scores of the 60's and 70's, Skyscraper provides the score for a cinematic journey of the mind.

What the critics are saying…

"From Balloon's reassuring Mellotron and hummably melodic guitar lines it's a straight-up, classy affair bringing to mind some heavyweight artists, from Mike Oldfield to Vangelis, even Hank Marvin. Brown has the knack of hearing precisely when a line needs to come in or - more importantly maybe - stop, or when a song needs to change direction entirely. Solid."
Grant Moon - PROG Magazine

"The best soundtrack you'll ever hear to a bunch of movies that never existed in the first place."
Ian Jane - RockShockPop.com

"...as funky 'n cool as his earlier work, but the spiraling and soaring tracks transcend the groove-tastic plateau and become uplifting."
Pat Moran - Creative Loafing

“Charlotte composer, The Man from RavCon, knows how to tell a story with nary a word. Skyscraper takes its listener on a retro adventure in their mind.”
Courtney Devores - The Charlotte Observer

“Sometime through my second time playing it, I started to think of Skyscraper as a journey through time and space, to real and imaginary places the music created in my mind’s eye.”
Noel Squitieri - SurfGuitar101.com

"Each one uniquely ravishing, you can't help but listen to every song again and again."
Emma Jade Gunn - SurfRockMusic.com
