ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Flow was formed in 2007 in Corvallis, Oregon, when an acoustic folk duo joined forces with a powerhouse rock band. The band's first CD, All Things Flow, was inspired by the words of the ancient Greek poet Heraclitus: "No single thing abides, but all things flow".

The theme of constant change (usually for the better) is developed further with Spring Wind. The title track, a song of comfort to the war-weary, foresees peace arriving with the winds of spring. Of the remaining thirteen songs, twelve are original. They are mainly rock songs, but with the rebellious voice of youth softened by the broader perspective of age Teddy, Almost Didn't See You There). The folk influence comes to the fore in the acoustic ballads Wake Up Jenny and Megan's Lament. There are smoky ballads featuring the velvet voice of Rita Brown (One More Time, No Place to Cry) and all-out chick rock (Screamin Yellow Thunder). The collection includes a single cover, a re-imagining of Vienna Teng's masterpeice "Harbor", and comes full circle with the original, acoustic version of the title track.

Rita Brown (named "Favorite Female Vocalist of 2010" by the Corvallis Gazette-Times), applies her smooth, balladeer's voice to the punchy rock songs of guitarist/songwriter Bill Smyth. Guitar work recalls Dire Straits, Pink Floyd and the immortal Jimi Hendrix. Bassist Mike Grattan and drummer Jed Irvine add inventive textures while providing the band's solid rhythmic foundation. A classic Hammond organ is frequently heard, and guest musicians contribute violin (Taz Thenell), trumpet (Rob Birdwell) and piano (Fumi Funahashi).

Neal Gladstone had this to say about All Things Flow:
"It is rare to come across a new album bursting with great vocals, blistering instrumentals and interesting arrangements. Rarer still to find this all combined with great songs. But this is what the Flow has managed to do in their debut album ‘All Things Flow.’ The songs are about something, with clever lyrics, strong themes and interesting melodies. They range from kick ass rock and roll to delicate ballads. "

Now, after much toil, inspiration, perspiration and good fun, The Flow is proud to present its second creation: Spring Wind.
