Cary Clouser biography
Canadian composer and multi-instrumentalist Cary CLOUSER has been active as a musician in bands since the early 80's, best known among these such as Visions of Eight, Soundbox and Oracle, the latter an outfit that for many years was a tribute band but who lately have started writing and performing original material as well.

As is the case with many other songwriters, Clouser decided to kick off a solo career as well, and so far this has lead to one album - Finger Paintings - which was self released in 2008. Clouser has since signed for US label Melodic Revolution Records.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Promising debut by this Canadian artist.

Normally this guy play in a Jethro Tull tribute band; and one might expect this to carry over to a solo production, but apart from the quite Tull-influenced tune "Don't Know!", complete with flute solo, this isn't the case here.

Instead we're treated to a piano-dominated workout mixing influences from bands like Kansas and Yes with 70's AOR, with symphonic-tinged keyboards adding textures and acoustic; and sometimes electric; guitars adding subtle detail to the melodies. The piano is the driving instrument though, everything is based around that instrument.

Clouser has a good voice, and he's a fair songwriter as well. Nothing that sets the world on fire here, but if uplifting proggish AOR sounds like a good thing to you, this CD should be on your list of albums that should be checked out.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
