ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The album began as a college assignment. Fraser had been working on some mini instrumental pieces with a view to creating a 10-minute mini album. These pieces were eventually re-worked and expanded to form a new full length album, but not without the help of some great musicians. Fraser arranged parts for a variety of different instruments such as trumpet, Hammond organ, violin, cello, harmonica and French horn. At a time when instrumental rock albums are few and far between, this album aims to fill the gap.

I’d like to thank all the fantastic musicians for playing on my record. You helped to make my vision a reality. Thanks for taking the time to help me out. Thanks to all the engineers for their input, and for being so patient. I’m also grateful to those who were kind enough to let me borrow guitars and equipment; without them I could not have created such a wide range of sounds. Finally I’d like to thank my friends and family for their support and advice.

Fraser
