Bound on Blue Gentian Records
The acoustic music ensemble Birdsong At Morning celebrates the release of Bound, featuring the warm, intimate vocals and finely honed songwriting of Alan Williams. Williams is joined by his long-time sweetheart, Darleen Wilson on guitar and vocals, and by his musical collaborator since their late teens, Greg Porter on bass and vocals.
Evoking the sudden leap and fated destination of restless journeys, as well as the deeply rooted bond between friends and lovers, Bound offers five compositions by Birdsong leader, Alan Williams, and an intriguing, acoustic take on Blondie's "Dreaming."
Bound shimmers with the expansive sound of old friend Ben Wittman (The Story, Laurie Anderson, Lucy Kaplansky, Erasure) on drums, recorded during a couple of astounding days at Avatar Studios in New York, and Alan's nuanced strings arrangements, recorded at Fraser Performance Studio at WGBH, Boston.
Lush in sound, intimate in feel, knowing in sentiment, Bound is the first in a four-part series that the band plans to release over the next year and a half. Each release sets a distinct mood and allows the listener to fully absorb the material in one sitting.
