Bringing you the very best in gay-acoustic-indie-folk-pop, this debut album features poignant lyrics and a light yet moody sound reminiscent
of Toad the Wet Sprocket and George Michael, all coming together to make
for a brilliant listening experience. This album also includes selections from the immensely satisfying set performed "Live at Eddie's Attic", which features a number of stellar tracks from both their debut album "Optimistically Hopeless" and its well-received followup "Eardrops for
the Audio Soul", adding depth, nuance, and an organic originality
that can only be captured by performing live.
Atlanta-based band the wayne fishell experiment is singer-songwriter Wayne Fishell and percussionist Keith Miller, aka "big.peaches". Our
mission is to bring the musical art of gay-acoustic-indie-folk-pop to
David Atlanta did a spread on the new CD recently, and had this to say:
"One of the most exhilarating parts of the experience of 'Optimistically
Hopeless,' Fishell’s first album with the Experiment, is the way the
songs swing from breezy folk-pop with album opener 'Bar Fight,' to funky
confrontation on 'Tulip Walls,' into moody confessional with
'Accidental Art.' And that’s just the first three songs. The album is a
tour de force."
