ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I Wonder is the debut album from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gary Snipes.

Gary Snipes is a musician of immense talent and diversity. He has been touring and recording for many years, and has now fused offerings from an array of styles into one remarkably adventurous full-length CD, in which he is accompanied by a group of musicians with similarly open minds. Says Gary “I see the Eclectic Orchestra as a dynamically diverse ever-evolving musical entity bridging a variety of musical genres.”

I Wonder is an eclectic collection incorporating a variety of musical styles, yet Gary's innate sense of melody is maintained throughout. Producer Scott Kinnear utilizes strings, horns and light orchestration to compliment Gary's unique flat-pick style guitar playing.

The album showcases the songs that Gary has accumulated over the years. They address the many moods and experiences from throughout his life. "Music is a way of expressing moods for me and I enjoy writing melodies that express emotion” said Snipes. “Music has been my passion since early childhood, through most of my life I was making up melodies in my head, so basically I was daydreaming too much."

Gary's musical background includes some bizarre projects as well as touring with a variety of bands from blues to art rock & classical. He has arranged music for several Dinner Playhouse productions, a jazzy score for a made-for-TV movie about romance and heartbreak and the soundtrack for a narrated Halloween story about wizards. He has also contributed to a punk-rock compilation, a ballet production of The Little Mermaid and ambient pieces for The American Outreach program on positive living. He has even recently performed a blues concert at a prison. Variety, as they say, is most definitely the spice of Gary's life.

This incredible diversity is exemplified in I Wonder, so don't expect to settle into a groove listening to this album. It bounds from Circle of Life, where Gary plays eight different classic guitars to produce a mathematically precise, yet skewed take on blues and rock, to the title track I Wonder, a kind of “folk rap sonic document” in the life of Gary Snipes. Fat Tire is sheer adrenaline - a high speed acoustic guitar assault on a downhill journey over the single track path of mountain bike racing, while Colfax Avenue is a gritty urban hard rocker with appreciation for life on the street stating “so you think I'm slow well at least I'm free”. Like emotions, the songs on this album are subject to change without notice, so let go and let it take you where it will.

I Wonder is available on CD Baby and I-Tunes. For further information contact Gary's producer Scott Kinnear at scott@kinnearkreations.com

Indie Review

Wonderfully diverse selection of styles and genres. Great sound.
This CD is all over the place with musical styles.
Gary is fluid in everything he approches on this project.
Songs range from Ambiant to forcefull Rock while drifting through Jazz and Blues. It's guitar based stylings lend itself a pathway from Barogue to light Orchestration. Soaring melodies and solos make this debut offering most entertaining. We highly reccomend it as an Eclectic change of pace in new music.

En Bogue

Eclectic diversity rocks
“Eclectic” aptly describes this incredibly diverse cd. Gary mixes up genres, styles, musicians, beats, tempos, instruments and more in an enticing array of layered melodies. It all adds up to one pleasurable listening experience, complex enough for serious listening, yet light and familiar enough to play over and over. From the exquisitely-crafted layering of "Circle of Life”, to the beautiful melody of “The River Song”, to the hard-rockin’ fun of “Colfax Avenue”, you’ll find quality music throughout this keeper. Nice job, Gary
