Los Angeles, CA, February 20, 2014 - For lap steel guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Michael Barry-Rec, his third full-length release, Continuum, produced a fresh new sound that emerged from his incredible experience at Montrose Recording Studio in Richmond, Virginia.
All previous releases were drawn out over a relatively long period, while Continuum flowed organically for a surprisingly quick recording process. “Although the songs themselves came through and surfaced as life experience allowed, the studio time itself was quite focused (but) with breath! It was the environment and all involved that kept the creative doors open and the magic bouncing off the walls!” Michael recalls.
Continuum showcases Michael’s progression and limitless artistry for his love for the lap steel guitar. Seamlessly blending everything from rock, folk, Americana, and blues, with an ambient sensibility, listeners get a taste of a well-rounded album of intelligent variations. Precise melodic execution from his fine acoustic and lap steel delivery make Continuum a solid and infectious new release. Featuring special guest contributions from George Winston on lead single “Sanctum” and bassist JD Foster who has toured with Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, and Dwight Yoakam.
From intimate simplicity to soulful dynamics, this thirteen track, well-crafted, instrumental album exposes a passionate, mature artist setting his sights for the stars!
