The Alchemist is the brainchild of composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Carl Kennedy, who most recently was the drummer in the Greg Lake Band. Songs From the Westside is a collection of well-crafted songs that blend intricate tribal rhythms with guitar driven passion interwoven with beautiful melodies, highlighted by Glenn Hughes’ powerful blue-eyed soul delivery and Kennedy’s haunting arrangements . Comparisons range from Traffic and King Crimson to Sting and Sade.
