Marcus Rezak Enlists Members Of Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits & SunSquabi For ‘Neutron Orbiter’ Single
Guitarist Marcus Rezak recruited Umphrey’s McGee keyboardist Joel Cummins, The Disco Biscuits drummer Allen Aucoin and SunSquabi bassist Josh Fairman to record his new single, “Neutron Orbiter.” The track is latest release from Color Red.
Rezak first called upon longtime collaborator Cummins, who contributed to Marcus’ 2018 studio album Gateway To The Galaxy, to record a song that would serve as a prelude to his forthcoming sophomore LP. The pair assembled at Color Red studios in Denver during UM’s Red Rocks run and rounded out the session with Aucoin and Fairman. “Neutron Orbiter” was recorded straight to tape and then guitar overdubs were added at Fairman’s Scanhope Sound facility while keyboard overdubs were added at Eric Krasno’s studio in Los Angeles.
Here’s what Rezak had to say about the new single:
“Neutron Orbiter” is an epic musical journey that is a true extension of my musical direction combining multiple sounds to create one whole sound. This track was written and recorded live in the studio with no previous preparation resulting in a purely organic musical development of the track with later overdubs of sonic layering enhancing what was already recorded. Some keyboards were recorded later at Eric Krasno’s studio in LA. I’m really happy with the overall sound of the tracks mix and sonic layers throughout.
