ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“For a Moment,” the new CD from Escher’s Enigma, continues on the band’s trajectory of providing introspective songwriting covering a comprehensive and contiguous set of musical genres. This new disc consists of 10 songs that are perfect for unwinding after a long day. Kick back, relax, and enjoy!

Escher’s Enigma consists of Brian Miller and Russ Miller, who have a combined 40+ years of performing and recording rock and pop music in a wide variety of settings. Russ has been playing the bass and recording professionally since the 1970s, while his son Brian has been playing guitar and piano, as well as singing, professionally since 2005.

The extraordinary quality of “For a Moment” is due to the fact that both musicians have significant recording experience. This highly collaborative project saw both musicians participating in the creative process of eight original songs, as well as interpretations of two popular tunes by well-known artists. Brian handled the guitars, vocals, keyboards, and midi programming, while Russ played the bass guitar. Brian mixed and mastered the album.
The listener will be delighted to encounter a variety of musical genres throughout the album: from their trademark acoustic rock on “Should Have Known” and “When Your Heart,” to singer songwriter on “My Guitar” and “Life of Solitude,” to a handful of adult contemporary tracks and contemporary pop.

Escher’s Enigma first foray into the music scene was their critically acclaimed debut EP entitled “From Me To There,” which received unanimous praise from music critics, including 2013's highest 5-star rating from Vents Magazine: “With a sound ranging from Modern Rock, Indie, Pop/Rock, to Britpop, Escher’s Enigma has a uniquely creative sound that translates through every song and beat. Their songs are passionate, real, fun, alluring, and consistently well delivered. Escher’s Enigma offers a distinct family synchronicity and musicality that can be found with no other band of this day and age. ‘From Me To There’ includes 5 tracks that will make you dance, pull out a lighter and sway, or dedicate to someone or some event that may have wronged you…”

Their follow up hard rock EP, entitled “Piece of Mind,” continued to garner critical praise. Gig Band Music says, “Piece of Mind delivers an uncharacteristic fusion of hard, melodic guitars and unique songwriting techniques, with a limber rhythm section that keeps the music loose and powerful.” Music Emissions states, “This is one of the most original sounding bands I've heard in quite some time...It's a ripe musical invitation into the world of a red hot band from the East coast...This outlier style of music is not only mastered by the Miller father/son dream team, it also deserves a much wider and attentive audience, to say the least.” Indie Music Digest perhaps summed it up the best, “These two are musical masterminds with more than enough zaniness, creativity and eccentricity to go around. The songs are extremely melodic, grooving, and somewhat eccentric – but above all infectious.”

Music Biographies:
