NEW SOLO ALBUM FROM RONAN CHRIS MURPHY
Still in progress but due out fall of 2006 is the long awaited first solo album from producer-mixer-guitarist Ronan Chris Murphy. Being in the enviable position of having worked with some of the greatest musicians in the world he put together a dream team studio band featuring Tony Levin on bass and chapman stick, Pat Mastelotto and Terry Bozzio on drums and Mike Keneally on keys.
The album has already included sessions at the amazing Saint Claire Recording Studio in Lexington, KY and Veneto West Studios in Los Angeles. You can see pictures of the sessions at the recording session photo gallery.The album will be unlike anything you have ever heard before, melding a wide range of influences into a unique stew described as Neil Young colliding with King Crimson. Those looking forward to hearing some of Ronan's work can hear him playing on many other artists albums and some of his work in his Soundscapes duo Lives of the Saints, with Bill Forth (from the band 10 Seconds) on the new Veneto West Compilation, Destroying Silence.
