ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guitarist Joseph Sullinger Releases Engaging New Instrumental Album

Guitar instrumentalist Joseph Sullinger is exploring new territories for his world class guitar music. The all original new album Earth Voyage has a world fusion sound with guest performances by members of the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra and an oceanic travel theme.

Currently living in Mexico, guitar instrumentalist Joseph Sullinger is exploring new territories for his world class guitar music with his third solo release. On the new all original album Earth Voyage, Joseph blends classical, latin, and nuevo flamenco styles into an eclectic world fusion sound with guest performances by members of the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra and an oceanic travel theme. Joseph’s strong song writing abilities and intricate guitar work accompanied by exotic percussion and other instruments make Earth Voyage an intriguing album with elements of world music, new age, and smooth jazz.

Joseph´s background in classical and rock combined with Latin and world music gives him an interestingly original sound. Songs like Drawn by the Wind, Voyage, and Escape are adventurous, and captivating and the classical guitar on Sailing and New Shores accompanied by orchestral instruments is outstanding. The music sounds similar to artists such as Ottmar Liebert, Strunz and Farah, and Mannheim Steamroller.

Joseph’s music has been featured on two episodes of the Emmy nominated and People’s Choice Award winning television series The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan. His first two solo albums were Popular Classical Guitar released by Eroica Classical Recordings in 2008 and Classical Guitar Christmas Favorites of 2010. Following the release of Classical Guitar Christmas Favorites, Joseph performed 31 Christmas concerts in the U.S.A.

Before relocating to Mexico, Joseph was a major player in the Dallas, Texas music scene and has performed in concert line ups with national acts including Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath, Poison, Dokken, Slaughter, and Cinderella. After arriving in Mexico, his focus was mainly on classical and Latin style instrumental guitar music, and he currently performs internationally as a soloist. Earth Voyage was recorded in Mexico and mastered in the U.S.A. by esteemed mastering engineer Steve Hall at Future Disc Systems.

Discovering Earth Voyage and the intriguing instrumental guitar music of Joseph Sullinger is an adventure for the ears and the imagination. Be sure to watch the video for Drawn By The Wind featuring close-ups of Joseph's intricate finger-style guitar work set to a tropical getaway by the sea. Earth Voyage is being released by Joseph’s independently owned label Soundship Music Records on September 5, 2011.

From MainlyPiano
"Earth Voyage" is the third release from classical guitarist Joseph Sullinger and is an eclectic blend of classical, world, and Latin music stylings. With the theme of oceanic travel, the music is often gently rhythmic and soothing without becoming ear candy. There is a strong, passionate pulse in some of the ten pieces while others are more on the dreamy, floating side. All of the compositions are Sullinger originals, and in addition to acoustic and electric guitars, he performs on electric bass, melodion, and percussion. Sullinger is joined by members of the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra on violin and tuba as well as keyboards, synthesizer, percussion, voice, and drums. The Texas native has a strong background in a variety of musical genres that include classical and rock, and has been composing music since he was a young child.

Our voyage begins with “Drawn By the Wind,” one of the highlights of the album. Although it starts quietly and with a touch of mystery, it gradually gathers energy as it evolves and demonstrates several facets of Sullinger’s very impressive musicianship. The sounds of the surf and seabirds fit in perfectly with the guitar, violin, and exotic percussion. “Voyage” effectively alternates excitement with smooth, graceful passages, suggesting a sense of adventure calmed by untroubled waters. Sullinger’s guitar work is sparkling, clear, and very articulate. “Escape” slows down the tempo and glides effortlessly - contentment set to music. “Ships At Sea” is also very tranquil and peaceful, evoking images of boats gently rocking to the ocean’s comforting rhythms. “Another World” is also a favorite. Brighter and more upbeat, there are definitely rock influences in this one. The melody conveys a sense of mystery and the strong rhythm gets the blood pumping and toes tapping. “New Shores” is quite different from the other tracks in that it is more orchestrated. It is also more ambient at the beginning, developing a stronger guitar melody as it evolves, accompanied by orchestral instruments and synth washes. “Sands of Time” is darker and more intense. A feeling of urgency propels the piece forward, perhaps into unfamiliar waters, and then it fades out rather unexpectedly - much like time does. “The Ocean” is a brief coda that brings our voyage to a peaceful close.

I love classical and Latin guitar and am so happy to have discovered Joseph Sullinger and his music. "Earth Voyage" is highly recommended!
