On his second ears&eyes Records release, “The Waters Above,” guitarist and composer Phil Schurger continues down the path of monumental storytelling through symbols referencing the cosmos, and a curiosity for world cultures. As with with his first release, “Echoes of the Ancestors”, each composition is multi-dimensional and episodic. The opening melodic statement sets the scene, which is followed by solo sections and interludes, crafted to continue the development of the ebbs and flows of the broader story. The band is dynamic in its ability to sculpt the music, whether propelled by Greg Ward and Phil Schurger as the soloists, or Clif Wallace and Jeff Greene’s dynamic rhythm section playing.

"Phil Schurger’s wide-ranging compositions and colorfully intense guitar playing are a rare treat: a cinematic meditation – blending rock and jazz with a sense of both drama and the mystical." - Chicago Artists Resource
