Fiona's Comments

Punchy, lively, flighty -- in the wide eyed sense of "Don't Blink," with a bouncing old school groove allegiance.

About the Album

Comprised of six performers and composers, all with stellar resumes but based in far-reaching corners of the country, the members of the Unhinged Sextet were originally drawn together through long-standing mutual associations. After gathering in Arizona for their debut, 2015's "Clarity," they were compelled to further explore the writing, emotions, and aesthetic the grouping inspired. The resulting performance of eight original compositions displays the warm regard the players have for each other's talents and a collective group dynamic clearly moving forward.
