Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra
FABLE
Available Today

Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra have released the much anticipated project – FABLE – today, August 21.

This project is filled with what Dunn’s fans have come to love: a musical collaboration of creative phrasings, eclectic instruments and songs that get stuck in your head for days.  FABLE, largely inspired by the fiction works of C.S. Lewis, pairs vivid imagery and fascinating characters with spiritual allegory to create a musical project unique, both sonically and lyrically.

Early reviews agree.

“Benjamin Dunn has penned some original and insightful songs which inspire imaginings of heaven and grace…It’s hard to find fault with FABLE.” – Indie Vision Music

“A perfect summer sounding record” – Tunes International

Recorded in Harrisburg, PA, FABLE, like albums in the past has a rotating cast of musicians involved.  On the album, the Animal Orchestra consists of Dunn (Lead Vocals, Synth, Guitars and Banjo), Nathan Horst (Guitars, Banjo, Background Vocals, and Synth), Joel Semke (Bass and Synth Bass) and Rusty Fuller (Drums and Glockenspiel).  The live show will have a variety of participants, depending on the show date and location.

This week, Dunn and his band are heading to Europe for a quick tour, before launching the FABLE Tour in the US in October.

European Tour Dates:
Sept 1 – London, England
Sept 5 – Bleskensgraaf, Netherlands
Sept 7 – Kiel, Germany

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
