Austin performed a great creative interpretation on the Drums for track A 'The Recent Future'. Austin is a perceptive and intuitive drummer with a natural feel for the underlying rhythms of music. Thanks so much Austin. We hope to hear more from you on future releases!
Chuck is a wonderful soul and a good old friend of mine. He played an incredible drum track for Track H 'The Ends of Times'. He matched the mood and tone of the song 100%. Always fun to work with, and here's to more creative work (play) in the future!
David is the driving force behind Atlas Before. He wrote all the songs on 'The Recent Future' CD. He also performed all instruments and vocals with the exception of the drum parts listed above. Also, Dave did the Audio Engineering, Web and CD design, etc. Dave says, "Whew! Am I tired? I hope someone likes this."
