Now You See Em Now You Don't
SEE THE After Silence LIVE ALBUM 'Live'll Get You Ten' @ cdbaby.com/aftersilence The group took it's name from a quote by Aldous Huxley (1894-1963): 'After Silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music' In addition to their own original songs the band has worked up great arrangements of some of the best material by the Beatles, Earth Wind & Fire, Ray Charles, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder, Little Feat, Sam & Dave, Pablo Cruise, Average White Band, etc. Producer/Bassist Jim Bruenn: 'In 1997 I approached my old friend and jamming partner, Greg Bullen. Greg has had a distinguished career playing keyboards in rock bands and later accompanying himself on both guitar and piano in a solo act that featured dozens of his own works interlaced with a little Mose Allison, the Band, and others. Then he went back to school, got a Masters and is now composing beautiful symphonic and choral work. I told him I could put together a funk/rock/jazz band of excellent musicians featuring vocals & horns, but only if Greg would play keyboards and arrange. When I saw the grin on his face, I knew I could talk him also into writing and singing for the group. Lucky us!' Would you like to meet female lead vocalist, Shyama? Or guitarist/vocalist Steve Ide?
