Bill Laurance & Michael League
Snarky Puppy founder, multi-instrumentalist and Grammy winner Michael League dreams himself to an imaginary place full of beauty, peace and power together with Cossover piano icon Bill Laurance."Where you wish you were" is the name of their first duo album together, which was released on ACT on 27 January 2023. Its protagonists surprise, quasi as an antithesis to the stadium-filling Snarky Puppy spectacle, with an intimate, atmospheric, melody-driven dialogue. The Spaniard by choice and North Africa enthusiast Michael League draws colourful musical landscapes on oud, bass and guitar. Bill Laurance, also known especially for dense walls of sound on keyboards and synthesizers, transfers their sound palette to the acoustic world of the piano. Musical escapism, world jazz 2.0 and an invitation to a place where we wish we could be.
