It’s almost Progtober! We’ll be celebrating with friends around the globe, and with the release of our latest video for “Those Dark Eyes”, this Thursday, Oct. 1st. Can’t wait to share with you all.
Dave Webb: Lead Guitars and Guitarmonies Michael Trew: Lead Vocals, Flute, Rhythm Guitar, Fables Mike Murphy: Bass, Vocals, Jaco-tone John Allday: Keyboards, Vocals, Gizmotron Kelly Mynes: Drums, Percussion , Shazam Moon Letters is a new progressive rock band from Seattle featuring Michael Trew (Autumn Electric), Kelly Mynes (Panther Attack!, Bone Cave Ballet), Mike Murphy (Cumberland Big Band, Bill Green Quartet), John Allday (Chaos and The Cosmos), and Dave Webb (Wah Wah Exit Wound, Spacebag). After cracking the lunar syntax, these faithful brethren harnessed a superfluity of hot licks, haunting melodies, and hypnotic rhythms. Upon cohering, they produced a concept album to be presented at length in 2017.
Lyrically and emotionally, this first song cycle is offered to be taken at face value or to be held up, before moonlight, to reveal the naked truths within.
Good students of hermeneutics might just find eudaemonia within these cryptic minstrelizations. Those with deep knowledge of all things Crimson, Yes, and (early) Genesis, might just find a hook or two to hang their hats on. Our satellite-obsessed musicians humbly hope that these invocations reflect a resoluteness toward life and love. With desire to face that which is needed to overwhelm and overflow the fear and hate so prevalent today, we are at your service.
