ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Meal" by The Lost Gospel Ensemble is a one-of-a-kind recording inspired by the Last Supper and the Gnostic gospels. The avant-gospel CD cuts across genre lines, blending elements of pop, folk, funk, rock and country. "The Meal" is a bold reimagining of gospel music in the epic form of a 17-track song cycle, yet each track also stands on its own as an accessible soul-stirrer.

Four lead singers represent the figures of John, Thomas, Mary and Judas. In the celebratory “Before” half of the recording, the singers are anxiously awaiting their guest of honor; in the sweeping “After” half, they react in moving, dramatic ways to their guest's profound news.

The Lost Gospel Ensemble’s singers are joined by a dynamic trio of drums, bass and keyboards. Members include such veterans of Vancouver’s indie music scene as: drummer Stephen Lyons, a recent Juno-award winner with Fond of Tigers (Instrumental Album of the Year, 2011); composer/singer Rick Maddocks, formerly of The Beige, and singer Caleb Stull from The Parlour Steps (International Songwriting Competition Winner, 2005). A small choir also gets in on the act as "The Meal" develops, building to a moving and inspiring finale.

The Vancouver Province called the premiere performance of The Meal at Vancouver’s PuSh Festival one of the ten “Best Concerts of 2011”. This “breathtaking” and “intensely spiritual” experience was staged again in a sold-out six-show run at the city’s Pacific Theatre in April 2012. The Meal studio sessions were recorded at Afterlife Studios by John Raham (Be Good Tanyas. Breakmen).

This is music for searchers, questioners, open-minded believers, non-believers and music aficionados of all stripes..whoever has ears to hear.
