Recorded in Oslo, Norway and mastered in Vienna, Austria, the album Songs About Humans is like the poetic soundtrack underscoring an imaginary film about the trials and tremendousness of human existence.
A lone clarinet. A melancholy piano. A thunderous explosion of noise. An occasional smile. Lyrics observing the inequalities and despair of human existence; music exploring the seemingly paradoxical contemporaneity of war and beauty, murder and love.
Originally recorded in 2001-03, Songs About Humans was released in March 2012.
"Broodingly delicate, this album will leave you feeling slightly misplaced and even a little shell-shocked. If Salvador Dali were a modern-day composer, he'd probably sound something like this. Sam Gray is a pianist and composer by trade, but he rightfully breaks the all the rules in this original and uncanny album." -www.grooveguide.co.nz
