All Over Everywhere - Inner Firmaments Decay

SKU Emkog 010
This is Dan Britton's latest project, something he is doing in addition to Deluge Grandeur and Birds and Buildings. This is very different than either of those projects and is a very proggy folk/prog release, based on songs and singing. 10 musicians appear here and there's a huge array of instruments used. What I always like about Dan's releases is that they are always very 'proggy', but somehow escape sounding like every other modern proggy release; they always have a large amount of their own voice.

"All Over Everywhere is a musical collective, based in College Park, MD, built around the songwriting of Trinna Kesner and Dan Britton. After meeting at an Espers show in 2007, they discovered that several of the song ideas they had each been working on were quite serendipitously compatible. Dan, who comes from a progressive rock background (Deluge Grander, Birds and Buildings), knew a few other “rock” musicians who helped with rehearsing, recording, and live performances, and Trinna, who comes from a folk and classical music background, knew a few “classical” music students at the University of Maryland who helped with recording, arrangements, and—occasionally—live performances. Soon after the nucleus of the group was in place in 2007, the plans for an album were well underway. Since most of the songs were a bit dreary and melancholy, the design for the album was to be seven sad songs followed by one happy and uplifting song (“Gratitude”).
The people who played on this album were:
Trinna Kesner: acoustic guitar, viola, violin
Natalie Hughes: cello and bass guitar
Jennifer LaPlatnia: piano, accordion, and vibes
Megan Wheatley: vocals
Kelli Short: oboe
Dan Britton: keyboards, guitars
Ignacio Cruz: zither, dulcimer, electric guitar
Pat Gaffney: drums
N. Scott Robinson: percussion
Brian Falkowski: flute and clarinet"
