about

"An amazing supporting cast & some of the deepest vocal, chant-oriented music in a long time."
--- Backroads

"Great work!!!!! I understand our similar musical schizophrenia... Awesome. Killer production. Great singing. Great songs."
--- Jai Uttal

Brink is a cinematic exegesis of sophisticated pop melodies and traditional Eastern music that achieves a striking level of emotional and spiritual intimacy. Ingenious arrangements incorporate a fluid mix of East Indian and Western instruments in a sequence of elegant aural rainbows. Dave Stringer's voice conveys a sense of grandeur as it plays across maturely constructed arrangements with mantras and lyrics in Sanskrit, Hindi, Farsi and purely improvised emotional language.

The soul stirring "Shivo'ham, Shivo'ham" is an intense awakening that starts out in haunting solemnity and is gradually transformed into a jazz-inflected and eastern-tinged celebration. The album moves seamlessly into "Sleep" evoking mystery, imagination and spirituality with its quiet beauty. Time seems to stop in "Ganashyama", a haunting vocal duet with Azam Ali, accented with sarangi, trumpet and piano. Brink lacks pretense and feels natural, appealing to Indian fusion music enthusiasts and West meets East spiritual pilgrims alike.
