Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra
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.
