“Into the Great Beyond”
Into the Great Beyond is an adventure in sonic and lyrical landscapes. There are 12 songs on the album. Mostly Indie Rock and Americana, but with other styles brought in as needed. The musicianship includes Stan Snow, Abe Laboriel Jr. (Paul McCartney), Valerie Pinkston (Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston), Lyle Workman (Sting, Beck), and Ben Smith (Heart) among others.
Each song is different. All songs were written and recorded in the order they appear on the album. “I wrote each song to satisfy the music fan within.” Snow said. “After I finished writing each tune, I would ask myself – ‘what do I want to hear now?’…..and I would write the next tune based on what I was hearing in my head.”
The transition from each song to the next is almost like a concept album. Each track is like a movement in a suite or symphony. But instead of it being classical and/or instrumental, there are lyrics to every song.
There are songs about Ukraine (Insanity Repeats), Covid/suvivalism (Chemical Fallacy), money laundering and drug running (Into the Great Beyond)….songs about the people we have lost (Gone Too Fast), hanging in there (Try), cheaters (Trouble), being present (Now), new relationships (Fight), being vulnerable (Guard), mind games (Jungle), dealing with challenging times (Change), and navigating transitions in life (Seasons).
Snow said “this is my best work so far. I’ve had great fun creating, recording and filming everything. Hopefully, that shows in the finished product”.
