That Ill Note
Just as storms are defined by the energy they absorb as they evolve, The Passage Project, too is defined by the energy it absorbs from an ever-changing array of musicians and talent that join it's recording sessions and performances around the country. At the center (the eye) of The Passage Project is Tyler Unland whose soul and inspiration lies in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Having written and recorded his first songs at the age of 15, Tyler's concept of a band was to keep the core sound of the music constant, but to continually change those with whom he writes and performs, allowing the band and it's music to be fresh, open to new ideas and talent and always evolving. When you listen to the unique sound of The Passage Project, you will understand why some of the musical legends of our time not only show an interest in Ty and The Passage Project, but play on the band's first CD. With their roots in the Rockies of Colorado, the band just completed recording in the cradle of American popular music, Woodstock, N.Y. amidst some of the most renowned musicians in the world. With legendary drummer and producer Jerry Marotta aligning forces with them for several months in the studio, The Passage Project is more refined in it's hallmark blend of robust beats, melodies, and soaring instrumentals and now move toward the long awaited release of their first CD in the Spring of 2008. Special guests on the album include: Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, John Lennon, Pink Floyd), John Medeski (Medeski Martin and Wood), Danny Louis (Gov't Mule) Ben Combe, Michael Bernier (avante-stickist), and many others! Engineered and mixed by Roman Klun.
