A tribute to lake monsters, rock masters
Local musician's new CD goes to great depths to tell a tale.
ST ALBANS CITY — Corey Cranston is a musician’s musician. The St. Albans City resident knows the peaks and valleys of rock, folk, psychedelia and world music the way a homicide detective knows his way around a crime seen, and it shines through in his latest CD, The Seerch.
LOCAL RECORD PICK
"C. David Stone’s Fantangasmic String Thing," Excessive Behavior. Cellos, violins and trumpets weave together Excessive Behavior’s strangely melodic creation of original Middle Eastern tinged instrumentals. With an improvisational feel and an imaginative touch, “String Thing" free-flows wherever main songwriter-guitarist Corey Cranston, violinist-violist Martin Safford and company want to go. Vivaldi’s "Four Seasons" is the stepping stone for "The Danse," a discordant piece that blossoms into a samba. The string- tuning opening of "Damascus” breaks down into a lyrical simplicity before busting loose with an energetic acoustic guitar.
