*A hybrid folk album that holds a mirror up to human nature, in the age of environmental crisis, and a future we have limited time to shape.
*Recorded live on the studio floor by songwriter Howard Gladstone and guitar/bass/drum trio.
*Audiophile 192kHz/24-bit recording by Grammy-winning Peter J. Moore in his Concord Ave studio, Toronto.
The songs on Concord Sessions focus on the broader picture of where we humans are at collectively as a species. There are themes such as activism and protest, the environmental crisis, human nature and history, forced migration and the plight of refugees. These are songs to help heal the planet.
The album title “Concord Sessions” ” pays tribute to the live in the studio recording techniques used. What you hear is basically how it went down and sounded in the studio over the two-day recording period. There are no overdubs. The only thing that was added were background vocals. It’s recorded in high resolution audio so every nuance and wrinkle is audible.
