Bill Kurzenberger To Release Third Album 'RESONATE' in May
Keyboardist/Singer/Songwriter’s Expansive New CD Features Nine Songs Recorded With Fourteen Bandmates
By: Bill Kurzenberger
Although Kurzenberger originally conceived the idea of bringing his multiple band projects into the studio when recording 2005’s ‘Suspending Disbelief’ and 2010’s ‘Solitary Road’, the idea proved to be too ambitious at that time. Then in 2014, the Recording Workshop provided the opportunity for his various projects to record a series of recording sessions with engineer Greg Jennings, facilitated by recent Recording Workshop graduate Lou Schocken. Based on the musicians’ availability, Kurzenberger organized fifteen sessions with the Bug Hounds, Terrapin Moon, KrisB’s Midnight Railroad, Eric Ransom, Schocken, and as a solo artist. For those sessions that featured his original songs, Kurzenberger further produced these sessions at the Workshop with engineer Jennings, and mastering by Jason Shaffer at Full Tilt Productions in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The end result is a far-reaching album with nine original songs covering vast musical ground tonally - varying from the Bug Hounds’ brass horn section to string accompaniment to acousticized songs highlighted by Kurzenberger on grand piano. Stylistically, his original songs included on ‘Resonate’
