I recently got to make a cover for friend and collaborator Ben Lamar Gay's second album 500 Chains, which was released September 28th, 2018 via International Anthem.
I'm really proud of this piece.
Seven pieces of animated, dynamic & melodic, colorful quartet music that sound, to our ears, like Andre 3000 (the balladeer) backed by a Mardi Gras marching band channeling Chicago style post rock & free jazz.
This project will eventually have a series of drawings to accompany the seven pieces.
500 Chains is the 2nd of 7 studio albums that he'll release over the next year, the first was released in May 2018.
Check out the full album here! Congrats, Ben!
