NEW AGE ALBUM
In the Company of Clouds is inspired by life, soul born, and played from the heart.
It is a very personal musical expression written, arranged, performed and produced by the artist, who even engineered and mixed the music, as a way to personally express...
“As music mirrors the moods of its makers, it can lift and soothe the moods and minds of the listeners…and so I hope these offerings will lift some hearts, warm some souls, and smooth some edges.”
- Erik Scott
Acclaimed bassist, composer and producer Erik Scott has been working in the recording industry since before Woodstock in 1969; from his work with Alice Cooper to Pops Staples, from Flo & Eddie to Sonia Dada. And now, since 2008, we find him igniting the fires of ingenuity, creating an ambience that is both earthy and ethereal..spiritual atmospheric music for the New Age.
"A heavenly combination of fretless bass and steel guitar." — Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space
