recently played my final official performance with Avalon Rising, on to
new adventures! ~ Avalon Risings' third album, "Elbows
design by Peter Overstreet) and previous albums
are available on iTunes, Amazon.com and CD Baby. Avalon
tune set "Musical Pesto" was used in an indie film called Cost of a Soul,
which won Rogue and AMC's "Big Break Movie Contest" and
received limited national release in AMC theaters.
Rising's second album, "Storming Heaven", received wonderful
reviews, including a fabulous review in Guitar
Player Magazine. Referring to us as
"absolutely stellar musicians", the review includes one of the best
complements I've ever had, when referring to Margaret and I:
sensual phrasing gives age-old and original melodies near-cinematic
impact. (Don't be surprised or embarrassed if you shed a tear when
listening to their plaintive harmonic dances -- it just means you're a
living, breathing, feeling person.)"
