Even as I was still composing the music and lyrics, I hada sense that the artwork accompanying the album wasvery important. That this project was not purely audio, butvisual.
A prayer and a search led me to Amruta Patil, the mostextraordinary graphic artist and writer. You can readmore about her on our team page, but I wanted to share her "table" - as the work progresses.
The Album will be a double CD, there is a lot of music!It will be a hard cover CD sized book with approx. 25"storyboard" panels with text, taking the listener from song to song - so the listener will hear and see the whole story.

Then in December, under the watchful eye of Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the New York Public Theatre, and friend, we will be doing a one week workshop in Londonto further develop the theatre production. Again, ill post pics and videos!Pete (Townshend) is trying out his acting abilities for the first time as he plays the role of The Ferryman. Watch this space.
