Album Notes
Canadian singer/songwriter Dawud Wharnsby and Ontario based writer/guitarist Bill Kocher, celebrate a joining of faith, culture and musical style. "The Poets And The Prophet" (Released in Canada, with an alternative track listing as "Vacuous Waxing") is a statement of hope in the midst of today’s increasing social, religious and political tensions. Wharnsby and Kocher (friends and musical colleagues since their teens) reconnected musically in 2001, through a simple effort to reflect artistically on their unique lifestyles and independent growth as writers and artists. A six month period of weekly coffee and song-writing sessions resulted in the accumulation of over 20 demos - most recorded as improvisational expressions into a tape machine left running at each meeting. Wharnsby and Kocher felt, more than ever, that their efforts to demonstrate “unity” through their music, should reach the masses. The material featured on their debut joint recording, and the free downloads available on this site only, intimately hit several issues of social concern: Struggle for identity, family violence, religious hypocrisy and conflict resolution.

Recruiting a diverse team of session musicians and featured guests, Wharnsby and Kocker’s "The Poet's And The Prophet" unites prominent artists with varying musical passions (Jazz, R&B, Folk, World-Beat, Classical and Pop) and cultural backgrounds. Among the CD’s featured artists are, double bass legend Danny Thompson (United Kingdom), Canadian songwriter and Juno Award winner Stephen Fearing, world renowned sitar master Irshad Khan (India/Canada), R&B vocalist Priyesh Shukla and top Canadian oboist James Mason. The recording has been produced by Canadian arranger, composer and artist Trevor Yuile.
