Twenty talented artists from 9 well-known bands - including bassist Rich Neville of POCO and Navajo flute player Kelvin Bizahaloni of BURNING SKY - join Dusk to create another eclectic mix of 12 songs. The range of instruments is even broader than that on his debut album, this time including sitar, Hammond B3 organ, clarinet, bodhran, "synth" guitar, autoharp, and many others.
There are two outstanding cover songs saluting Bruce Cockburn ("Indian Wars") and Townes Van Zandt ("Quicksilver Daydreams of Maria") to accompany Dusk's 10 original tracks.
Like the debut album, this recording highlights what reviewers call "StorySong Americana" through Dusk's unique blend of tale telling to music, powerful vocals, varied musical genres, spoken asides, interwoven thematic elements, and ringmaster theatrics. The album is a journey of spirit, humor, pathos, and renewal that listeners of all ages enjoy.
A 16-page CD booklet with lyrics, background for each song, and additional photos is included, as well as a bonus music video for the song "Sunlight of Your Smile."
