Located in New York's Capital Region, Everest Rising is a tightly-knit quartet influenced by folk, jazz, rock and more. Together they create a progressive acoustic sound that is unique yet comfortably familiar. Their innovative instrumental arrangements and thoughtful lyrics take the listener up less-traveled routes. With a fresh and vibrant sound, Everest Rising is on the ascent! The songs on this recording are the result of a collective passion for creative musical expression, written, arranged and produced by members of Everest Rising over the past year. This is heartfelt music, prepared with care. Enjoy! Recorded between April and July, 2011. Engineering, mixing & mastering by Scott Apicelli at Blue Sky Studio.
