Filtering by Tag: Empyrean Atlas
Saxophonist and guitarist David Crowell has played with the likes of Phillip Glass and the Bang on a Can All Stars. He’s also an acclaimed composer whose chamber works have been played at some of the best new music festivals across the country. I first experienced his music in a dingy Williamsburg bar with his band Empyrean Atlas. They draw on minimalism and afro-pop to create a infectious swirling kind of groove that sounds like nothing else you have ever heard before. The recently released their second album Inner Circle.
<a href="http://musicforwingwalkers.bandcamp.com/album/a-mixtape-volume-2">A MIXTAPE Volume 2 by Wing Walker Music</a> Our second mixtape has finally arrived. Our goal is to highlight some independent music from all across the creative music spectrum that we love. We REALLY want people to hear this music so you can download it for NOTHING. That's right, it's completely free. If you like what you hear, PLEASE go purchase a record or two and share it with all of your friends. All of these musicians want to keep being able to put out albums and the only way for this to happen is if you actually purchase their music. DO IT!
