When playing out with the Chris Bramble Band, the idea is to create danceable & inspirational music in the acoustic/electric folk/rock vein, with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and musical adventure. I plug my acoustic guitar through a plethora of pedals to conjure new sounds that nod to, yet elude, ‘traditional’ electric rock guitar sounds. The albums “Laugh At the Wind” and “For Those With Eyes to See” reflect this ethos, and are blessed with the talents of numerous folks, including drummers Bradley Leach and Brad Cox, and violinists TerryAnn Gillette, Mike Kane, Chris Rovetti, and Ananta’s electric violin. Bassists Paul Lamb and Michael Lindner have also contributed tremendously as producers and engineers on “Eyes” and “Laugh”, respectively, as did John Paul MacLean on “Laugh”, also coincidentally a superb bass player. Paul Best contributed djembe and other percussion instruments on tour and on both “Eyes” and “Laugh”. And, can’t forget Mike Emerson, who lent his keyboard prowess to “Eyes”. This aspect of my music has been described in reviews as “ sunshine and blue skies on a warm day” and “expansive spacey groove along the lines of Gong meets Hawkwind” and “ a sonic party to delight brain, soul, and tapping toes”. Hope that’s a sufficient description….
