Where Angels Fear to Tread
Multi-instrumentalist and singer Martin Cliffe put the band Voyager Project together to enable him to realise his artistic vision. A veteran of several bands that had limited aspirations or scope, Martin wanted to be able to push the boundaries. A committed Christian and active worship musician, he recruited his bandmates from other churches, to reinforce his own musical and life philosophy. Childhood friend Rob Ogden, himself a talented multi-instrumentalist, joined to play rhythm and acoustic guitars, and Martin's wife Eva contributes drums and percussion. The fantastic if somewhat eccentric Dan Guerrard supplies lush and creative keyboard textures, while Aynsley Sutton rounds out the quintet with his rock solid basslines. The sixth member of the band is lyricist Ed Cooke, whose unique talent with words presents the band with many thought-provoking ideas. Influenced by a huge range of artists and styles, from progressive rock, country, pop, blues and modern rock genres, this collection of songs covers many bases. It features inventive instrumental sections, diverse arrangements, catchy riffs and vocals, layered vocal harmonies and more! There is nothing explicitly Christian about their lyrics, as the band prefer to keep their music accessible to all and to act out their faith in the way they live, but a listen to the album will certainly give you plenty to think about! Comments from fans upon hearing the songs include: 'Cool music! :)' 'I'm loving your tracks, great arrangements!' 'I really enjoyed listening your music... Great tunes and fantastic arrangements!' 'Been listening to your songs. Real nice work guys. I love the keyboard use' 'I go all over these charts listening... You, my musical friends, are one of a kind and I appreciate you much!' 'sounds great man! You guys rock! Got a fan here!' 'I'm listening to your tunes right now and think They Rock!'
