ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It’s music inspired by traditional appalachian tunes, old-timey jazz and balkan music, then reinterpreted with dense thick sounds that are moody, yet driven like a wild train. This group has recently completed their first record which will be out in September. Sarah Alden and Rima Fand of the luminescent Orchestrii play twin fiddles and sing, Brandon Seabrook shreds a tenor banjo, Raphael Mcgregor sweetly swings on the Lap Steel, Jason Sypher lays down the bass and some guest artists. http://www.sarahalden.com/

Wow
This is an eclectic mix of music. It's very raw and honest, the main ingredients are great musicians and a lot of personality. There's no shortage of excitement on this album (see track 2!) It's all out there in the open on this simple recording, uncluttered and produced simply. This is Sarah's first solo album and it delivers all of the surprises and spontaneity that I hoped for after hearing her playing along side Sxip Shirey and Rima Fand in Luminescent Orchestrii.
