Kitt Wakeley Shares A New Album – Symphony Of Sinners And Saints
Songwriter-composer Kitt Wakeley shares his new album, Symphony of Sinners and Saints. With an impressive cast of participants to the project, this is clearly Kitt’s biggest release to date. From the London Philharmonic to London Voices, Joe Satriani, Andy Timmons, Paige Harwell, Brent Berry and Ryan Miller, Kitt Wakeley has reached to the best artists in the world to record Symphony of Sinners and Saints at Abbey Road Studios.
Kitt Wakeley shares:
“I knew that we were on to something special when I would see the orchestral players, conductor and Abbey Road staff get excited during the recording sessions. Subsequently, knowing that talents such as Joe Satriani and Andy Timmons were willing to play on the project gave me additional affirmation that the project had great credibility. However, I never dreamed that the end product would be so jaw dropping. When mixing the songs with my producer, I was floored at how it was coming together. Watching people come through the studio and seeing their reactions was affirmation of my own conclusions. They would ask to sit, listen and watch us mix the project for hours.”
As for the unique blend between rock music and orchestra that he invented over a decade ago, Wakeley recalls:
“It was interesting to see the yin and yang of two genre’s colliding. More interesting was performing live. The prim and proper orchestral players interacting with the rock musicians was a sociological case study. Everyone got along great and had an appreciation for what the others did. That’s where I initially came up with the concept of “Sinners and Saints”. Eventually, it made sense to create the vernacular Symphony of Sinners and Saints.
