Album Notes
The album "A Tale To Tell" was unintentionally written, almost an accident, circumstances and coincidence: early in 2016 Cary T. Brown and Stéphane Bonacci began to write songs together. Without the idea of making a record, simply for the pleasure of composing and writing. After 3 months, 9 songs had already been composed and demoed, it became clear that their collaboration was going to take the project ill River on a different course than initially planned. The original band formed around the duo Cary & Aurélien Boilleau took an artistic turn just before entering the studio in September 2016. The collaboration between Stéphane and Cary had become a full-fledged musical project with a new musical identity.
Stéphane Bonacci, the principal co-composer/artistic director/guitarist/bassist/claviersiste: created a rough and harmonic musical universe, the perfect compliment to Cary's rugged voice and poignant lyrics. The arrangements are astute, subtle and imaginative. The sound engineer, Jean-Marc Hauser captured perfetly the recording sessions, particularly the performance of the drummer Jérôme Spieldenner, a most outstanding performer. An expressive player that reminds us of the great Keith Moon or John Bonham. The acoustic guitars and most of the vocals were performed by Aurélien Boilleau.
All of this set the scene for Cary T. Brown to express his mix of musical influences developed through the years of travellling about with his mother once employed by the U.S. Veterans Administration. Through these cultural changes : Kentucky, Maryland, California, Pennsylvania, and more recently France, he became a musical chameleon, comfortable in the storytelling of folk and country music ; the likes of Tom T. Hall and Hank Williams Jr. or in rock music, more melodious and popular ; the likes of Kings Of Leon, Pink Floyd, Wilco, The Counting Crows or The Eagles but also sometimes a bit more hard ; the likes of Janes Addiction (Cary sang a song with Perry Ferrall once in a club in New Jersey) or Alice In Chains.
A true passion for songs that says "something".

"A Tale To Tell" will be released February 24 . This 10 song album is sincere and authentic. The arrangements are fluid and organic. The production is without extravagance. The post-production is minimalist and absolute, no cheating.
