Crystal Bright

“From gypsy jazz, to klezmer rave-ups, to Danny Elfman-esque gothic soundscapes, the music forges a dark yet whimsical path, inspired by photographs from Rusty McDonald of DividingME Photography.”

You are invited to escape the everyday world and journey with us to the “Absolute Elsewhere” – A place where characters spring forth from art, music and mythology. A place where artists connect and their visions merge creating a land where dreams and myths breathe and fill space. I was inspired to make my own journey after seeing Rusty’s photographs that capture the essence of this enigmatic world. Each image inspired me to create a song and in turn invite a collective of musicians to help acquaint you with the inhabitants and scenery of the mysteriously beautiful “Absolute Elsewhere”. Their voices and stories emerge as the process unfolds. They exist only in this place.
