Children of the Cosmos

A new track from Darryl Way, formerly of Curved Air.

Legendary Curved Air founding member and violinist, Darryl Way is releasing a new album on Right Honourable Records, via Cherry Red on May 19, 2014.

‘Children of the Cosmos’ is Way’s first prog album in over twenty years and demonstrates his creative view of Progressive Rock, forty years after being one of the early founders of the genre. ‘Children of the Cosmos’ features 12 new tracks showcasing Way’s original compositional, rock violin and vocal skills.

Says Darryl, “With ‘Children of the Cosmos’ I have tried to recreate the spirit of experimentation that led to the ‘Progressive Rock’ movement of the late 60s and early 70s. As I did in the early days of Curved Air, I have tried to integrate my classical background with rock music, to create soundscapes that are hopefully both exciting and innovative.”

Way continued, “The lyrics for the songs are my observations of our current environment and the world we live in, echoing some of the issues touched upon in the music of the late 60s. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to pass this way once more and I hope that rock fans will enjoy this album, as much as I did creating it.”

  1. And if Ritchie Blackmore ever played with him, we could call the band A Rainbow In Curved Air!

  2. Tim Hall says:

    Oh dear, oh dear.

    Ritchie is still off doing cod-renaissance hey-nonny-nonny music with a singer he can’t sack ‘cos he’s married to her.

  3. To really complete the joke, though, you also need to have Terry Riley. Good grief, can you imagine the end result of THAT three-way collab?
