Andre Balzer biography
Composer and instrumentalist Andre BALZER is probably best known for his tenure as vocalist in French progressive rock band Atoll in the 1970's. Following his departure from that band he reappeared briefly as the vocalist of hard rock band Fisc in the early 80's, but since then he has held a low profile.
2011 saw Balzer reappearing as a solo artist, releasing the ambitious concept album Entre l'alpha & l'oméga (Opus I) on French label Musea Records. An album whose title suggests that more material may be forthcoming from this now veteran musician.

4 stars French composer and vocalist Andre BALZER may not be a name that invites to instant association these days, but those with a solid memory might recall that he used to be the vocalist for the French progressive rock band Atoll a few decades ago. Following a lengthy hiatus as a recording artist he suddenly reappeared in 2011 with his first ever solo production, "Entre l'Alpha & l'Omega-I", released by the French label Musea Records.

Not always breathtaking or spectacular, but fairly often surprising and generally inventive within the given framework explored, Andre Balzer has made a fine debut as a solo artist with " Entre l'Alpha & l'Omega-I". If you think you'd like folk-oriented music with subtle jazz orientation that sparingly employs art rock as an effect this is a disc you might want to investigate. Much the same goes for anyone with an interest in conceptual suites outside of the classical music realm, and in particular if distinctly sounding French music is something you tend to enjoy.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
