AND FLYING DREAMS
Called “one of the key trendsetters in the genre” by Ion Indie magazine, Ryche Chlanda and Flying Dreams have just released their initial eponymous LP with New York metro based TransGlobal® records. TransGlobal® is distributed through Sony’s The Orchard. This hotly anticipated LP is available for streaming and downloading through virtually every major digital outlet in the world.
Guitarist/songwriter Ryche Chlanda (Fire Ballet, Renaissance, Nektar) stated that he is “ecstatic” over the new release. Bassist and co-producer Ron Bienstock (Another Pretty Face, The Suits, Blue East) that the Orchard was the “obvious choice,” noting that the Orchard was the premier distributor of its type and a natural home for this unique prog/jam band.
As an added bonus for fans, a newly recorded track Disconnected featuring new bandmate and keyboard wiz Kendall Scott (Project Object) and drummer Jay Dittamo ( Bucky Pizzarelli to various Zappa bands, amongst many others), is being released simultaneously with the LP.
The initial LP, mixed and mastered in part by Gordon Bahary (Electric Kingdom) has received rave reviews:
“Epic … Eerie … Electric … “Flying Dreams” is a masterwork from the ever-versatile Ryche Chlanda, one of Prog Rock’s unsung guitar masters.” — Will Romano, author of “Mountains Come Out of the Sky: The Illustrated History of Prog Rock.”
“Balancing Wheel”- A deep, dark, majestic piece with piercing guitars and hot bass work! ‘Imagination Arrives’-Throaty vocals over a mystic prog landscape. The acoustic guitars grabbed me immediately. Classic prog/rock heaven! ‘Why Can’t I Be More Like You’ – A bit of a Neal Morse vibe here. Packed with rich melody. Incredibly beautiful.”
