Ghost Circus
Latest News - Music News
Written by RogorMortis

After less than a year since the completion of their critically acclaimed debut album, 'Cycles', Ghost Circus is already in the process of recording the follow-up. Working in the same long-distance, Trans-Atlantic style of the previous recording, the duo of Chris Brown and Ronald Wahle promise another diverse platter of music with an even greater share of each others' individual creative personalities.

Both musicians will once again handle all the performances for this album. Due to the fact that they now have a tested system down for their recording method, they expect recording to go smoother than their previous effort. Add to that new instruments and upgrades to their respective studios and all the tools of inspiration should be firmly in place to unleash the wealth of creative chemistry Brown and Wahle share.

Some of the individual music tracks are already completed. While the guys will be taking a short break for the holiday season, they will resume in full force at the start of the new year. Keep checking the news here at ghostcircus.com for updates as the sessions go along.

ANNIE HASLAM IS A ‘WOMAN TRANSCENDING’
Former Renaissance lead singer taps Mike Rutherford, Steve Howe,
Tony Visconti, London Symphony Orchestra, other top musicians and songwriters for solo career compilation.

BUCKS COUNTY, PA (December 7, 2006) -- As a holiday treat for her loyal fans around the world, legendary rock vocalist ANNIE HASLAM has scoured the archives of more than three decades’ worth of her solo recordings to present WOMAN TRANSCENDING her first CD release in four years.

The former lead singer of the English classical rock band Renaissance has lovingly compiled 16 powerful recordings by some of the world’s most talented songwriters and musicians – from Mike Rutherford (Genesis, Mike + the Mechanics), Steve Howe (Yes, Asia),  Barry Gibb (Bee Gees)  to producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie), and the London Symphony Orchestra. Together, they take listeners on Annie’s uniquely personal journey through her intertwining words of music and, most recently, painting.

Annie’s clear, high-flying soprano vocals are embraced in various styles and settings on this collection of rare recordings from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. WOMAN TRANSCENDING, newly available on White Dove Records at www.anniehaslam.com, revisits Annie’s Nashville country sessions with members of the Carl Perkins’ Family; her interpretation of the Bee Gees rarity ‘My Eternal Love’ under Tony Visconti’s supervision, and her futuristic experimentation with the London Symphony Orchestra, among other extraordinarily eclectic chapters. Many of the styles Annie surveys are unexpected, but her sheer delight in exploring them is consistently evident. Other notable contributions come from the likes of Raphael Rudd, Raff Ravenscroft (sax player from Gerry Rafferty’s hit single “Baker Street”), David Biglin, Warwick Embury, B.A. Robertson, Mike Read, Rod Edwards, Neale Heywood, Kit Hain, Ward Parks, Bob Brown and Annie’s late brother Michael Haslam (once managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein). And of course, Annie’s solo band members: Rave Tesar, Mark Lambert, Dave Keyes, Joe Goldberger and producer Larry Fast.

“I’m extremely excited for people to hear these songs,” says Annie. “I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with such wonderful and talented musicians over and above my experiences with Renaissance. It’s been a wild ride, indeed. Getting all the elements together was additionally emotional, because several of the people involved have been lost to us in recent years. This CD is a tribute to them.”

The cover art of WOMAN TRANSCENDING brings the project full circle, as it is exemplifies her most recent career concentration as a noted ‘Dream Expressionist’ oil painter. The image is Annie’s own meaningful rendition of Leonardo da Vinci, coincidentally known as ‘The Renaissance Man’ and also, like Annie, a singer and vegetarian. Giclee copies of the painting on canvas and Archival paper also are available through www.anniehaslam.com.

 “There were no second thoughts when I was deciding what artwork to use for this project,” says Annie. “This, too, felt just right.”

 According to French Website "Heavy Music Webzine" which is regarded as a "reliable source" the new Porcupine Tree album is slated for release on the 16th April 2007.

Simon Clarke who is responsible for the brilliant PT fanzine Carbon Nation and is close to the PT camp believes this to be entirely reasonable and consistent with what he has heard on the grapevine.

However, Deadwing ended up being released two weeks late, but well 16th April!!

 

According to a posting on the RUSH fan site Power Windows, PORCUPINE TREE magazine Carbon Nation reports in its latest issue that RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson and KING CRIMSON's Robert Fripp will guest on the PORCUPINE TREE's next album, currently set for release next April via Atlantic Records. Lifeson and RUSH drummer Neil Peart have both expressed their appreciation for the progressive rock band, and engineer/producer Paul Northfiled has also worked with the two acts.
