Description

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.

Credits

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 the world.

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."
