If you love concept albums from such master creators as Pink Floyd, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, The Who, Alice Cooper, and David Bowie, this project is for you.
Glimpses is a concept album based on the works of 13 spellbinding authors. Each author submitted his or her lyrics to professional musician, Craig Nybo, who composed and recorded the album in his independent studio, located in Northern Utah.
Each song captures a glimpse of one of the featured author's work. This mixed genre album focuses on lifting compelling, theme-heavy lyrics into songs that portray the authors' overall visions of the stories from which the lyrics come.
We ask for you help as a concept album lover to make this album a reality.
Your backing will go toward printing CDs of this recording and making it available for the world.
