Fiona's Comments

Tangibly enduring, cleverly arranged, dream-like delirium.

About the Album

Josh Nelson's series of interactive multi-media projects over the last several years have focused on space (2015's "Exploring Mars") and science fiction ephemera (2011's "Discoveries"). The latest manifestation of "The Discovery Project" comes back to earth with "The Sky Remains," Josh's love letter to Los Angeles, where he was born and raised. Avoiding the many cliches surrounding its culture, Josh presents stories that reveal a fascinating history, from forgotten architecture and landmarks that shaped daily living, to the abundant wealth of creative and inspired individuals who have flocked to and defined life in LA over the last century. With vocalists Kathleen Grace & Lillian Sengpiehl and a stellar ensemble featuring guitarist Anthony Wilson, Josh's thoughtful musical framing of its ongoing story adds another chapter to Los Angeles' cultural anthology. "Too often we tear down and forget to make way for a re-imagined tomorrow, but the sky remains the same."
