Album Notes
The wide-ranging diversity of Oliver Franklin's musical pedigree is thoroughly showcased in this debut solo effort. Veering from the blissed-out, psychedlic hard rock of "When You Awake" directly into the swirling piano nightmare of "Lighthouse", this record lets you know right away that it is going to surprise you at every turn, but that every new twist is welcome, has its place and its purpose.

Oliver Franklin is as much a composer as a songwriter. These songs are each fully orchestrated opuses; they are never bogged down by the wall of sound he creates, but highlighted and given their full weight. The rhythm section anchors it all with a rock and roll swagger that binds the music together, firmly planted on the earth with a view of the cosmos. Sometimes gentle, sometimes frightening, this six song collection covers a wide, wide swath of territory. It will challenge you, please you, and never bore you.
