Bell Tower Mansion

by Blvd Park

Spaghetti Western Desert Folk Imagine this: you're somewhere in the southwest, kickin' back on a rocking chair, looking out over the wide rolling countryside with a warm breeze gently blowing through your hair; and heck, maybe even a glass of whiskey nice and neat in your hand. With plenty of blues, gypsy, folk and swing, Blvd Park's music has its roots in traditional bluegrass and country music. A double bass, guitar, trumpet, fiddle, snare drum, and the occasional mandolin, steel guitar or banjo, make up the composition of the group. Four to five part harmonies make up the vocals, with both male and female contribution and leads. http://www.myspace.com/blvdparkmusic

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blvd Park began as an off-shoot of Brian Ballentine's band, "Nevada Backwards". Brian's poetic, haunting lyrics and gravelly voice are unpretentious, raw, and unforgettable. Combine the rough quality of Brian's voice with the smooth and beautiful echoing call of the ladies, Elise Suttie and Tekla Waterfield Austin; you have a very dynamic balance; both masculine and feminine. Original band member, Timmy Conroy chimes in on background vocals as well as providing melody riffs on the trumpet and melodica. (You'll hear his and the ladies beautiful voices spotlighted more in Blvd Park's next album.) Playing from the age of four, Guinness Harley's fiddle riffs add a distinctive bluegrass feel to the mix. Jarrett Mason and Beau James Brown keep the rhythm solid and strong with the upright bass and snare drum. Adding to the depth of Blvd Park's vibe is the multi-instrumentalist Mick Stevenson on the mandolin, banjo and slide guitar.

So happy!
The blend of instruments and vocals is amazing! The melodies ring of culture and touch places in my mind I thought were private. Hehehe. Feels like eating cake, in bed. Truly talented, honest art!
