Every Panopticon show has been like a family reunion. I wasn't at this performance, but I still feel like part of the family when I hear this recording. It's like a warm hug from a friend.
Favorite track: Norwegian Nights.
I was there. Words can't express how grateful I am for this release. Wonderful performance on a magnificent evening of wonderful performances and talks. As always, thank you Austin.
Favorite track: The Pit.
Warm yourself by the fire with another very moving performance of very moving songs, amplified by guest musicians and singers, and by ethereal chapel acoustics.
And throw in a good tip, too, for those tornado victims whom Austin was so generous to assist.
First and foremost: Every cent received from this recording is being donated to Kentucky Disaster relief via the Kentucky Colonels to help folks in Kentucky effected by the 2021 Western Kentucky Tornado.
This recording is a combination of the audio from video footage and single mic recording at my show in Antwerp, Belgium at the beautiful AMUZ music hall, in a repurposed historic cathedral. The natural reverb in that room is absolutely insane.
That night I was very fortunate to have some special guests perform with me including:
Patrick Urban (Cello through out the entire performance)
Jan Van Berlekom (Vocals on "Pancho and Lefty" and " Norwegian Nights"
Marissa Kay Janke ( Viola on " Norwegian Nights")
Don Anderson ( Acoustic Guitar on " The Wandering Ghost")
It was edited and cleaned up by Spenser Morris, and the Cover photo was taken by Bekah Lunn inside the Cathedral.
Thanks to everyone who bought this for helping the people of Kentucky rebuild. It means a lot to me and my family.
Don't let the fire burn out,
