RINDE ECKERT - DO THE DAY OVER
Rinde Eckert CD NEW!! Rinde Eckert has released his second album, Do the Day Over. An artist whose music knows few physical or spiritual boundaries, Eckert effortlessly co-exists in the world of performance art, theatre and alternative music. Do the Day Over once again features Rinde's band The Compleat Strangers.
John Diliberto, CD Review:
"...Eckert adapts cajun music, rap and African styles with his skewed narratives and...draws you into a harrowing, richly detailed world...It's like a Laurie Anderson with an attitude or Tom Waits with a voice."
Josef Woodard, Musician:
"...he creates a kind of performance art song with roots in jazz, rock folk, gospel and opera---an unusually eclectic shooting match."
Damon Stanek, The detroit Metro Times:
"...a reviewer once said 'Rinde Eckert could sing the Yellow Pages and hold an audience transfixed.' Actually, Eckert could just sing the numbers and leave you mesmerized."
Derk Richardson, SF Bay Guardian:
"...always challenging, often majestic, occasionally disconcerting, and sometimes downright weird."
