Album Notes

(Canvas Productions) Reviewed by http://www.ravenheartmusic.com, 25th June 2012

October Tree was born out of the prog band Canvas when guitarist/vocalist Greg Lounsberry invited his wife Tammy to sing guest vocals on their upcoming album. Impressed with the outcome, they decided to embark on a new musical project with Tammy on lead vocals, an allegorical story about fairies. A broken hearted girl asks a witch for a cure, she is told to take a fairy's wing, but it causes the fairy to die. Ashamed, she flees to the forest where she is captured and forced to repeat her deed as a sideshow in a carnival. Escaping, she encounters further extraordinary characters like an ogre, a minstrel, a wolf and a magical snake oil salesman, who force her to face her actions, so she returns to the Fairy Tree where it all began. You can read the full version on their website. Musically, they are a mix of Materdea, Alan Parsons Project, Procol Harum and that famous firm of Saddleworth solicitors, Barclay James Harvest, with Tammy's deep bluesy voice that does remind me of Simon Papa. The album has a super collection of enormously enjoyable catchy songs with a great toe tapping beat, including 'The Fairy's Wing', 'The Ogre', 'Howl', 'Mortis Urgan', the closing epic 'Epiphanies' and the slower bluesier 'Dark Carnival' . These are interspersed with a variety of shorter numbers, some sung by Greg, others instrumental. They have called upon a fine array of superb musicians, with son Daniel on humming Hammond, lots of great synths from Chris Cobel, tasty guitar by Greg, and John Swope and Matt Sweitzer's lock tight rhythm section, all beautifully produced by Greg. A delightful album of very accessible and lovingly crafted music that is more melodic rock than prog. Their glade can be found at octobertree.net, a tremendous 8.5/10 (Phil)
