Meridian Odyssey

Meridian Odyssey is a band comprised of five musicians who are committed to creating a multi genre experience rooted in the history of jazz, rock, funk, and R&B in a forward thinking context. All of the members of the group have worked together in various situations previously, but the first time they have performed and recorded as a group was for their debut record. Throughout the coronavirus lockdown, drummer Xavier Lecouturier and guitarist Martin Budde went back to Big Lake Alaska, where Martin grew up. Over the months, they assembled a studio in his fathers aircraft hangar and invited the three other musicians to rehearse new music to livestream and record. The product is an album that reflects a multitude of sentiments regarding the year it was recorded. Each member of the band contributed original music to the record, leading to a diverse approach in composition and genre mediums throughout.
