Life of Ease
Rich orchestrated rock, strong on vocals and arrangements. Brings to mind classic late 70s, early 80s prog rock, this time around, a reflection on life's endless idiosyncrasies. D.B.Bonham's solo release, 'Life of Ease,' features the single "Conversation," facing difficult issues with a simple answer. Douglas B. Bonham (LENGENDARY EDEN EXPRESS, ZILLER, The OTHERS, NOTORIOUS NOBODYS, REEFER PUNKS) collaborated with guitarist Marc Albaum (REEFER PUNKS, LEGENDARY EDEN EXPRESS), drummer Tim Donahue (CHERRY POPPIN' DADDIES), and bassist Spence Trowbridge (1UP2DOWN) to make this special CD. With a special appearance by Doug's younger sister Tracy Bonham on vocals and violin on four of the tracks, this CD comes alive, rich with melodic elements, powerful passages, and the freedom to explore new ideas. Also, worked again with Albaum, from their late 70s band, LEGENDARY EDEN EXPRESS,as well as the always amazing Donahue. Mysterious and thought provoking, Bonham challenges you to meet your own raw elements head on, without reservation, and with conviction. From the eclectic "Falling Star" to the stark "Blame Me" to the sacrifice of "The Prize", Bonham reaches deep within the darkest doors to reveal another endless take on "the truth"!
