ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is primarily for people who love the fusion of rock and classical and pop. I began composing the tunes on this album
more as an excercise for my "rock chops", but soon found that the songs were fun to play, worthy of recording. Posting several songs on
youtube, I was delighted by the response of listeners.
This album is recorded in a "trio" format with Guitar,Bass and Drums only. There are some recording techniques that were used to enhance the sound of the guitar, but all the guitar was performed with one pass so that the song can be performed live with just the trio.
All songs written by Michael Dowdle
Guitar and Bass - Michael Dowdle

Ale Garofalo

Outstanding fusion album
Michael Dowdle amazes me with this outstanding fusion album. Aside from his terrific skills as a guitar player, the compositions are a perfect balance between the expected and the unexpected. Rather than following the most commonly used arrangements for this type of music, he surprises us with innovation and incredible ideas.

The more I listen the album the more I get fascinated with its music, arrangements and outstanding performance of Michael and the other musicians that accompanied him. I love the contrasts, the different feelings that each piece brings, and overall the energy that it transmits.

No doubt Michael Dowdle is among the best guitarists in the world and Convergence is a clear demonstration of that.
