The rock ‘n’ roll veterans known as Paul Brett Sage have released their latest LP album, “Emergence.” The record is composed of 14 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes, representing the first official release from the band in almost as many years. It has been published on the Viral Discs and Downloads independent record label. Born equally from hard rock, psychedelic rock and folk roots, “Emergence” is a potent and highly imaginative record for fans of masterfully performed rock ‘n’ roll everywhere.
Paul Brett Sage is the rock crew led by UK guitar legend, Paul Brett. Having played in sessions and various other capacities for titanic bands such as the Strawbs, Tintern Abbey, and Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera, Brett is renowned as one of the world’s leading guitarists, and a person of considerable note where ’60s and ’70s psychedelic rock is concerned.
His current troupe, Paul Brett Sage, pick up with “Emergence” where they they left off with their last LP, 1972’s “Schizophrenia.” While Sage’s members have changed, their spirit remains just the same, and fans of earlier Brett material are certain to be enthusiastic about the beauty and power delivered by this remarkable and poignant record. Brett himself has described the sound as “a mix of acoustic and electric tapestries.”
Neither have Brett’s rebellious, “hippie” principles been watered down for the modern era. On the contrary, his lyrical content seems more aggressive than ever, one of the record’s most rewarding qualities.
Speaking of the themes around which “Emergence” revolves, Brett writes, “The songs featured on this album in the main reflect the sign of the times we live in. Many topical issues including fracking, corporate morons, banking devils, chattering media classes and a couple of tracks inspired by Edgar Allen Poe.”
In addition to the aforementioned groups, Paul Brett has played in sessions and gigs or toured with bands such as Mott the Hoople, Motorhead, Manfred Mann, Keith Ralph (Yardbirds), Steve Holley (Wings), Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jimi Hendrix, the Who, and a great many others. He has his own brand of signature guitars distributed globally by JHS/Vintage guitars and is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on vintage guitars.
