ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Commended Entry UK Songwriting Contest
Finalist Australian Songwriters Association Music Awards

"You can tell just the passion in the vocals, the passion that's going on with the strings and everything else…you can feel that coming out." (Wes Johnson, INDIE 104/iRadio Los Angeles)

"Over is the first single release from VOICE IN THE ATTIC's forthcoming full length album, After Songdown. What are the lyrics about? Only when we realize that our time on earth is limited do we focus on what truly matters to us. Only then are we brave enough to start living life to the fullest to make our dreams come true. Though I studied philosophy for years on end I still have no clear idea about the afterlife or whether there is one. However, deep down inside of me there is this 'metaphysical certainty' because of a near-death experience I had as a child in which I saw the light I'm singing about on Over. So I believe that thinking about death has a positive effect on me." BC

Written, recorded, arranged, edited and produced by BC Bogey.
Mixed by Craig Durrance at Paramount Studios. Mastered by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

Voice In The Attic: “Over” – voice and music melt together like butter on a muff
Initially as an adolescent BC Bogey was the lead singer and main songwriter in a heavy metal band named Moshington D.C. and subsequently various other bands. At a later stage BC was admitted, under the alias of Chris Boge, into the Robert Schumann Hochschule, a prestigious conservatory in Düsseldorf, Germany. However, BC always had his own musical visions so he dropped out, teaming up with multi-instrumentalist and producer Wilfried Pechtheyden. Together, they formed TIDE. Thereafter BC began studying philosophy, geography, English literature and culture, graduating with honours from Cologne University, where he accepted a teaching position in 2007.
“I like music that’s organic,” Bogey says. “In this quantized ‘hyper-real’ day and age, when recording I frequently pick those takes that sound less perfect, but preserve the original vibe. It’s what I call the ‘humanizing approach’.
“Over” is the first single release from the forthcoming album After Songdown recorded with BC’s current project, Voice In The Attic. Together with musicians and engineers from Cologne and Los Angeles BC is feverishly working on the 14-track After Songdown (worldwide release Fall 2015), which will be mastered by Bernie Grundman.
With his smoky baritone voice and cool, mellow delivery, BC Bogey puts together a dark atmospheric and thought-provoking track with “Over”, which discusses what the values of life…and afterlife may mean to us. It is a simple yet stunning commentary on society. BC’s imagery and use of symbolism to convey his thoughts is nothing short of genius here. But ultimately it’s his voice that commands, mesmerizes and captivates your senses.
It is really hard to resist the vocals which are deep, effortless and very close to your ear within the mix. Many artists have messages to convey and social commentary to give, but BC Bogey also has a sensitive musical talent and a better delivery than most.
Voice In The Attic’s musical art inhabits a land where authenticity is the cardinal virtue and ostentation its opposing evil. Within that land, BC’s expressive preternatural voice and his persuasive lyrics eloquently narrate life with a larger hope and a bigger view of metaphysical events linked to death.
On “Over” BC displays the innate ability to write and compose an all-enveloping song from a single thought or theme. His voice and the simple acoustic-driven music seem to melt together like butter on a muffin. “Over” will no doubt hit you square in the heart!

Atmospheric, Dreamy and Moving
Voice In The Attic’s “Over” speaks with wisdom. The chamber pop arrangements are pitch perfect, neatly weaving together elements of classical and folk. Forgoing any sort of electronic effects, Voice In The Attic has a timeless sound. By far the heart of the song is the powerful poetic vocals. Lyrically the piece feels rather mysterious, with a clarity that is explored throughout the piece. A sense of purpose, of finality, enters into the song giving it a bitter sweetness. There is a story that rests at the edges of the song as Voice In The Attic merely reflects upon this, as there is a new story that is about to take place.
The song begins with elegant deliberate guitar work. From this quiet beginning comes the vocals whose breathy texture at times feels reminiscent of Tim Buckley’s “Anonymous Proposition” with the same level of romanticism. Gradually the flourishes of piano and strings float into the mix. Change is quite subtle throughout the piece as the vocals serve as the focal point. Everything else orbits around the vocals which have a sense of acceptance of fate. With each additional passage the piece grows in terms of color and texture. By far one of the nicest elements has to be the strong cello work which helps give it an almost quiet, jazzy feel.
Reflection dominates the piece. Voice In The Attic chooses a quieter more patient path on “Over” showing off his impressive skill in creating an atmospheric, dreamy, and ultimately moving skill.
