Fragile Thunder Trio – new crowdfunding campaign

January 20th, 2019

The Fragile Thunder Trio (Anela Lauren (harp and vocals), Stephen Inglis and David Gans (guitar and vocals)) went into the studio with bassist Robin Sylvester a few months ago, and emerged with a record that includes two long, exploratory “Dark Stars,” a “St Stephen” with a jam in the middle, and a sweet rendition of David’s song “Jacqueline.”

Here is an audio sampler of the final mix.

We have just launched an indiegogo campaign to get it out. We’re looking for a heap of presales – options include downloads, CDs, a bonus live recording of Stephen and David from November of 2018, and more. Please click here and contribute if you can!
