Written by on 13 May 2020

A mixture of metallic and jazzy in “I Am 2,” viciously overdriven in “Empty” or uncompromisingly bluesy in “No End In Sight,” the string play isn’t always the most virtuosic in Passionate Presence, but it’s always the most defining element in this fascinating new album from Anthony Rufo.

Sébastien Lacombe’s “Gold in Your Soul” (SINGLE)

Written by on 28 April 2020
