new music coming
CMG artist, BRAD LIEBERMAN, is set to release a brand new album
entitled "Square The Circle," STC.
"This project is all about bringing together 2 things, which are normally thought to be so different that they cannot exist together. But they can and they do; like to have courage one must know fear. To know love, one must experience hate [and so on..]. The natural order of things in life is just that: unity through plurality of opposites. SQUARE THE CIRCLE. Square cube into a round hole. When we are not sure, we are alive," exclaims Lieberman. Stay tuned for further updates regarding this much anticipated project.
CMG/Calabama Recording Artist
Chris Pierce's newest album, 'Let All Who Will' delights audiences and critics alike. HighTimes News described it as being the perfect "balance between immediacy and longevity." 'Let All Who Will' continues the quest of amplifying unheralded voices, aims to bring us together across the bitter trenches that divide us and examines the essentials of the human condition: resilience, growth, emotion, aspiration, conflict, and mortality. The recording sessions were led and produced by CMG founders David Resnik and Niko Bolas.
