Epiphany’s music has been called “some of the most evocative and intelligent music to come down the pike.”- NPR. Their unique hybrid of world-music, modern classical art song, Americana and Avante-garde-folk has been referred to as “utterly uncategorizable but always transcendently beautiful” by the Washington Post.
Composer/pianist John Hodian and singer/songwriter, Bet Williams began collaborating in 1992. At the time John was composing music for theater and film while Bet was performing in clubs and at festivals while experimenting with her one woman performance-art pieces. Both artists had been writing material outside of their normal mode of expression and were looking for a way to bring the new material to fruition. Bet was searching for a more rigorous approach to her expressionistic performance style while John was looking for a voice to fit his new found striped down compositional style. After hearing each others work in a chance meeting at a performance salon in Philadelphia it seemed perfectly natural to begin working together.
The 2nd release from Epiphany Project. After 3 ill-fated attempts to record this CD with different ensembles and different studios, it was finally recorded live at the artists studio in Legendary Woodstock New York. Many of these songs are performed in the live Epiphany Project show.
