Evan Raymond evraymond.com My heart and soul is on this disk. Simple as that. This is the stuff that goes on and on in my head. This is the first burst of recordings that I created in early 20004 when I first got pro tools. There were many years of un processed music looking for an outlet. ^#^all of it built up during years of leading backpacking trips and pondering the desert and the wilderness. Don't know if I'll ever make another like this one. 'Broken Cage' the title represents the uncontrolled energies in the world. The title track has a run away feel as though everything is coming unglued. A friend of mine got mauled by a Grizzly bear the same month that I was recording that. Crazy world out there. Turn it up and listen to all the minutes of it. ^#^seriously. 'Canyon' and 'Green Reprise' are now on the soundtrack of a Star Wars documentary entitled 'heart of an empire' some highlights of the last ten years have been: ---carrying a 95 pound pack through the Grand Canyon and climbing remote spires. ---watching severely disturbed kids' faces light up after days of struggle in the wilderness. ---finding 40+ foot Sperm whale skeleton on island in Mexico. ---sitting with tribal elders and talking about fish, birds, plants, the economy, and the sky. ---tarring a 125 degree roof in Hollywood in July. ---playing guitar on stage at Harvelle's in Santa Monica. Guitars are the ultimate instruments in the history of mankind. They were made to make bold and beautiful sounds. The best sounds... ever. So rock on. Nobody can top this. It will never happen. The lucky ones just start listening.
