ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sometime in late 2014, my collaborator, Brad Hord and I had just finished the recording of “The Invisible World” project. After 6 studio albums and several years composing film scores with Brad under the name CutshawKane, I had started to miss playing live and getting that personal reaction from the listener. I also wanted to keep things fresh by collaborating with some other local musicians.

When time allowed, I started by getting together with a high school friend and guitarist Mark Addington. It did not take long to start bouncing new musical ideas around and reworking songs from previously released CDs, making them more suitable for a planned 3 to 5 piece band.

After months of practicing and writing a number of new instrumentals; as well as adding my oldest son Bryson Ferree on percussion, we had a set list that we thought was interesting enough to start booking a few local gigs. We settled on our group name and played a couple of gigs as a 3 piece before adding Pedro Fraginals on electric guitar/bass. We finished out 2015 playing several more venues and festivals. The audience response was great and the positive feedback was encouraging.

We took the winter off to regroup and see what we could do to improve our sound and the songs themselves. Over the next few months Pedro and I began writing new songs together. I think this process was successful in testing and stretching both of our songwriting and musical boundaries.Throughout 2016 and 2017, the line-up changed several times with different local musicians filling positions and experimenting, with our sound and song arrangements.

Pedro and I continued writing new music and songs during this time period, first to keep things interesting for us live and second was coming up with a group of songs that would work together for this upcoming CD. We started recording our first self-titled CD in 2018 with the help of Bryan Powell of Wizard Tree Recordings. This will be my 7th release on Spirit Wind Records.

We are currently playing live shows from Feb to Nov, sometimes as a duo or trio and others times as a 4 to 6 piece band. Dates will be posted on chrisferree.com, Facebook and Instagram. Thank you ahead of time for your support and we hope to see you soon!
