ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hi! Thanks for checking out my band and as you might imagine, I am very proud to be the founder and guitarist of Temporary Power. Music is a powerful thing and I am in a constant state of awe of how ideas cam give birth to new ideas. For instance, I didn't know that 10 years of rock music would be ahead when I first put together an experimental demo on my Tascam 246-4 track recorder in 1997 and I was so excited beyond mere words to send in couple of cds to a new little online company called CDBaby.

Pinch myself...could it be a dream? Could I actually do music that I wanted to do with my home recorder? Up to then, I was in bands that didn't trust in the importance of musical freedom or believe in the power of equal imput from fellow band mates. Talking with other musicians I found they had similar experiences that I had...and unfortunately there was always a kind of dictatorship that prevailed and believe it or not, that was just how it was...you either dealt with it... or you got tired of it and struck off on your own.

Like most good things, it turned out to be an excellent experience as I found the importance of a musical democracy and the freedom it can bring to a music project. I felt musicians should be able to collaborate and feel free to add their incredible and awe inspiring input without all the difficulty that I had experienced previously in my musical career.

As time went along Temporary Power definately gained some fine musicians who I felt very honored to work with. Things gained momentum and as creativity flowed and more elaborate recordings seem to come about each year, I found the music pushing the boundaries of convention. Trusting this is what good music should do, Temporary Power became a much needed outlet for the multitide of ideas that are always swarming in the mind of crazy musicians. Here's to Temporary Power always going to new and exciting places.

A big thanks to Randy Powell who appeared all throughout 10 on bass guitar and one of the best drummers I have ever worked with, the amazing Deitrich Sanders.

Sending out the love to the folks who have collaborated with and trusted in what Temporary Power is all about. You have helped to make this music project kick some serious ass...and you all are truly inspiring musicans...thank you so very much.

Bill MacKechnie (ANUBIS SPIRE) - Lead Guitars on "J10"

Jason Lively - Drums on "J10" and "Lady of the Lake"

Tommy Tabano - Bass guitar intro on "After the Storm"

Neil McDermitt - Synth programing on "Robotic World"

Danny Hamilton (EVE's PASS) - Bass guitar on "Lady of the Lake"

Paul Martin (GOLDAIR STUDIO) - Sound effects on "Lady of the Lake"

Joe Malmuth (HOLLYWOOD LOVESCENE)- Bass guitar on "The Moment the Soul Arrives" video

John Vazquez - Drums on "The Moment the Soul Arrives" video.

Here's to the musicians who added their magic and dragged the dream into reality...working with great musicians like you is something I always look forward to...thanks for enriching my life!

THE BIG THANKS goes out to those who believe in and support local talent and independent music like Temporary Power! We really need your support to make it all happen and it is great to be part of an incredible worldwide medium and communicating musical family.

All I can say is music is for everybody and is really, REALLY important. It has never been a criminal waste of time like many powers that be would have us believe it is.

If anything, music that matters is a conviction of the heart and carries a tremendous amount of energy and has a message as well and since musicans have emotional needs to manifest and create, it is important to have and maintain outlets for their creativity.

Wayne Dyer says it best: "We are a drop of water in the great ocean of God and the Universe. A small drop isn't as powerful as the ocean...but it is comprised of all the same incredible elements; and we can not be away from our source."

We can at times be reduced to rubble like an insignificant sandcastle in front of the great Mother Ocean and our ego (or our false sense of reality) doesn't like this when it happens.

But I think this is a very important step in our musical evolution and we pick up the instruments with greater momentum and then we begin to return to ourselves and we are now on our way to being more complete human beings and we are resonating with others who are doing the same thing in other artistic mediums, as we allign ourselves with energy that is much larger than ourselves.

In closing, I must say that the love here on Earth is stopping it from imploding. This is a recording that is dedicated to how it takes everything we've got to be a part of the solution instead of part of the problem.

So thanks for giving the music a listen and thanks for your support!

Sincerely,

Mike Ward
