It is the synthesis of three experienced Chico musicians allied with a mouthpiece from Phoenix who all came together in San Diego to animate this air. Beau Murray puts his sticks through skins and slams his cymbals to shambles. Dan Drake breaks his bass and sings decay. Jai Luna stretches and strangles sick strings. Jay Edwards makes his vocal cords soar and roar.
