Beasts first album, “The Groan”, will be released June 2017.
‘BEAST” is a voice of and for the wilderness that combines poetry, theatrical masks, ancient rhythms, traditional and modern dance forms, with a heavy side of the blues. Beauty and mystery get woven into music and song that call your mind, body and soul back to the re-enchantment of the wild. Ecstatic prophecy mixed with theological insurrection dredged up from the swamp of souls and cooked over a slow burning midnight fire in the outback campsites of many resistance movements across time. BEAST listens to the elements, eats their messages and regurgitates it back to those listening through a sonic portal of lament, ancestral awakening, and defiance.
“To the desert go prophets and hermits; through desert go pilgrims and exiles. Here the leaders of the great religions have sought the therapeutic and spiritual values of retreat, not to escape but to find reality.” – Paul Shepard
