This project has been in the making for 30 years, and is the first release of it's kind. 1041 does not simmer but explodes into life from the beginning. It does not surrender to cookie cutter conformity but rather reaches to express that inner musical calling each song exclaims. Sometimes fueled with raw energy other times subtle, yet equally emotive. It has a genuine appeal. The music stands on it's own. The lyrics expose a vulnerability, which reminds us of our human frailty, yet possess an empowering factor amplified by human, political, and global interests. The melody weaves and plays with an assortment of complimenting guitars, while the bass and drums do their part to infuse the listener into the work. It looks beyond for the answers we each must find within ourselves. It's alive!!!! Enjoy and Thank You -B.
