Metaphor’s new CD featuring the drumming of Greg Miller 

 

Yes, THE Greg Miller.  The one.  The only.  Greg Miller . . . my husband.  Architect extraordinaire.  Web designer.  Father of the Year.  And, a world-class musician.   Seriously, I am SO proud of him.  The CD is amazing.   Metaphor is a progressive rock band (think: Genesis, Rush, Pink Floyd, etc.). The music is complex, thought-provoking, and challenging.

 

From the Metaphor Website:

The Sparrow
The best-selling novel The Sparrow, by celebrated author Mary Doria Russell, is the basis for this new CD by Metaphor. It tells the story of the first mission to another planet – an inhabitated planet that came to Earth’s attention when we received signals that turned out to be music. This CD features a fabulous original cover painting entitled “Quercus corymbion” (© 2007) and other artwork by Patricia van Lubeck

 They don’t mention on the website ANYWHERE the amazing vocal stylings of one Liza Lee Miller but I’m on there in a choral arrangement that was really fun, really difficult, and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to be a part of a recording.

 

Another really nice part of all this is that they finished the CD just as Greg’s father died.  They dedicated the CD to his memory.  He surprised his mother with that this weekend.  So touching!

 

Now . . . go buy it!  Keep my husband in drumsticks!  🙂

    I went over and listened to the audio samples. They do sound very good. Great artwork on the cover too. Congrats all around.

    Yes, I should have mentioned the artwork. They found the artist via the Internet. She is in New Zealand, I believe. She let them use it for a very reasonable fee! The other cool thing is that the author of the book, Mary Doria Russell, knows about this project and gave them permission to do it.

    Wow! I didn’t know Greg was THE Greg Miller…very cool to have a published musician as a husband!

    I am certainly all over this. I love to support musicians I feel connected to in one fashion or another. And cool beans that you are on it, too! I’m off to the Metaphor website now…
    Oh- reading the little review blurb about the novel and the album- I wonder why “the Sparrow” title for each. I have an idea but it is probably wrong…I’ll ask you on Twitter
