Marriage of the Sun & the Moon
Twelve more tracks of world-beat-influenced pop-rock from Aaron English. Featuring many of the same key personnel that performed on 'All the Waters of This World', 'Marriage...' was co-produced by Aaron English and long-time collaborator Don Gunn. Seattle-based Aaron English is a singer-songwriter, yes. But there is nothing 'singer-songwriter', in the quaint coffeehouse open-mike sense of the term anyway, about his sophisticated, world-beat-influenced sound. These songs are big songs: driven by Aaron's vivid lyrics and deft piano work, but spilling over onto vast canvasses of sound, incorporating arena-rock and jazz-rock stylings, electronics, and traditional musics from around the world into his recordings and live shows. '...a talented new artist in a class with other stylistically challenging singer-songwriters such as Peter Gabriel, Joseph Arthur and Perry Blake... potent lyricism, eloquence, and beautiful sublime melodies that reach much deeper than simple pop songs...' - Mark Newman, Progression Magazine.
