The story of Acoustic Alchemy has always been about innovation and adaptability. In the nearly 25 years since their first recording, the UK-based group has crafted a sound that maximizes the potential of not only the acoustic guitar but also its electric counterpart – and in so doing they’ve explored the subtle corners where jazz, pop, world music and other genres intersect. Along the way – with the help of a massive worldwide following created by consistent touring – they’ve weathered personal setbacks, dramatic shifts in musical trends, and in recent years, sweeping changes in the music industry. Greg Carmichael and Miles Gilderdale head-up the current version of the ensemble. The two guitarists are energetically backed by the exceptional rhythm section support of Fred White on keyboards; Gary Grainger on bass; and Gary’s brother Greg Grainger on drums. Roseland, a 13-track recording is the title of Acoustic Alchemy’s latest recording, released September 27, 2011 on the Heads Up label. The new album pushes their musical boundaries by incorporating rock, reggae, folk and jazz influences.
