Transmissions: The Music Of Beverly Glenn-Copeland

    Throughout a fifty year recording career, legendary singer, composer and transgender activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland's music has defied categorisation and genre, its only consistency being the extraordinary fusion of vision, technology, spirituality and place.

    Now in his mid-70’s, Glenn-Copeland was born into a musical family and studied the classical piano repertoire from ‘cradlehood,’ listening to his father playing the piano four to five hours a day. He moved from his home-town of Philadelphia to study classical music at McGill University, Montreal in 1961 (focussing on the European song repertoire) before he suddenly felt called to write music that would weave influences from the myriad musical cultures he had come to love.

    Newly signed to Transgressive, this career spanning collection of songs includes three previously unreleased tracks; ‘River Dreams’, written last year and released with the album announcement, the live versions of ‘Deep River’+ ‘Colour Of Anyhow’, in addition to studio tracks from his acclaimed masterpiece Keyboard Fantasies + more.

    FORMAT INFORMATION

    Ltd LP Info: LP format is pressed on heavyweight black vinyl and is housed inside a beautiful gatefold sleeve with spot gloss to the cover. Includes a bonus 7” (also black vinyl), and code to download all tracks, including those that are on the CD + digital formats (‘A Little Talk’ and ‘Erzili’)

    Gunn-Truscinski Duo

    Soundkeeper

      Steve Gunn and John Truscinski’s collaborations are a point where experimental instrumental rock and cosmic jazz meet. This is their fourth album overall and first in three years.

      Gunn-Truscinski Duo fans are intense in their love of these records - they naturally spin off from Steve’s solo work but also go in their own directions as well.

      This track - and album - will be rapturously received by the fans of this project as being cut from a similar cloth that they already know and enjoy but covering some different and previously unworn ground.
