It’s a meeting of artists creating an ambient world, when we talk to Dark Sky Alliance featuring Peter Gabriel drummer Jerry Marotta, guitarist David Helpling, keyboardist Rupert Greenall from The Fixx, and electronic artist Eric “The” Taylor. Their sound is what happens when New Age and New Wave double-date with Progressive Rock and Ambient. Their debut album, Interdwell, is a study in ambience and soundscaping. John Diliberto signs us up with Dark Sky Alliance on Echoes from PRX.

California Guitar Trio with John Diliberto

Alsoo  thhiis weekend, The California Guitar Trio, live. Get ready for some guitar virtuosity and an instrument that isn’t a guitar, even though the guy who plays it is in the California Guitar Trio. As if 18 strings weren’t enough, they’ve replaced one guitarist with Tom Griesgraber who plays the 12 string Chapman Stick, giving them a total of 24 strings. We’ll hear this new configuration of CGT play live, including three new, and thus far unreleased tracks, and a guest appearance by Italian electric guitarist Fabio Mittino. Join us when the California Guitar Trio comes in to play live on Echoes from PRX.
