The Headwhiz Consort Moderne Internationale: Singles Volume One

The Headwhiz Consort Moderne Internationale

Experimental World with an Orchestra! This release is a compilation of the singles The Consort has released so far. It ranges from Orchestral to Jazzy to almost Rap (but not quite).
Quirky at times, expansive at others, grooving at yet other times.
The meek probably should beware.

John McGrail Singles Volume One

John McGrail

Progressive Folk Rock

Cleveland based singer songwriter John McGrail has been writing music for the last 40 years and performing for over 35 of those years. His tastes are wide as is exemplified by the variety of artist with whom he has shared a stage. He has performed with or opened for Ellis Paul, the Irish group The Chieftains, East LA Tex-Mex group Las Cafeteras, The Cowboy Junkies, New Age artist Larkin, native American songwriter Bill Miller and political folk songwriter Dan Bern amongst others.

Categorized as a folk musician he accepts that and on some level even agrees, but his influences range far beyond that and they all contribute to the ‘folk’ music that he creates. Analysis of his tunes would find things like odd meters, Floydian textures, and the occasional stinging guitar solo. Then there are the lyrics... well there are those who have described him as the Dark Prince of Cleveland Folk.
