Released: 16th October 2020
|LP + bonus 7"||£23.99||Out of Stock|
The perfect overview of a multi-faceted artist whose praises should be sung for lifetimes to come.
Throughout a fifty year recording career, legendary singer, composer and
transgender activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland's music has defied categorisation
and genre, its only consistency being the extraordinary fusion of vision,
technology, spirituality and place.
Now in his mid-70’s, Glenn-Copeland was born into a musical family and studied
the classical piano repertoire from ‘cradlehood,’ listening to his father playing the
piano four to five hours a day. He moved from his home-town of Philadelphia to
study classical music at McGill University, Montreal in 1961 (focussing on the
European song repertoire) before he suddenly felt called to write music that
would weave influences from the myriad musical cultures he had come to love.
Newly signed to Transgressive, this career spanning collection of songs includes
three previously unreleased tracks; ‘River Dreams’, written last year and released
with the album announcement, the live versions of ‘Deep River’+ ‘Colour Of
Anyhow’, in addition to studio tracks from his acclaimed masterpiece Keyboard
Fantasies + more.
