Spiritual Emergence was founded by Rob Scott(Me) in 2013.
For this project I have brought together musicians I have met in the Boston area through the last ten years or so. I grew up in Newton, right outside the city. I met Jason Palmer, Lee Fish and Godwin Louis at Wally's Jazz club in Boston. Justin Purtill I met through a mutual friend while going back to school for music in my early 30's. All these men are rising stars in the field, guys with whom I get along, guys who know how to add life to a song. Unique cats.
I Was born in Boston in 1970. I hail from the East Coast with family in Philapelphia, New Jersey, NYC and DC. I went to Art school in Philadelphia back in the day.
With this album of tunes I hope to convey all of my life influences to date, from the sound of the East Coast Ocean waves to the night lights on the George Washington Bridge. To San Franscisco and back.
The title of the album comes from a term used by the enlightened folks at Esalen to describe what Western Society calls a psychotic break. Humanity itself appears to be on the brink of a Spiritual Emergency. This album is dedicated to the hope we make it through the bottleneck to a New Earth. Homo Spiritus!
