Neal Morse joins ProgPositivity to discuss his band’s 2015 release “The Grand Experiment”, their most collaborative effort to date.
In the past, Morse typically has waited until he had 90% (or more) of an album’s material pre-composed before getting a band together to begin recording. For his upcoming 2015 album, however, he invited drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette to come to the studio prepared to contribute integrally to the songwriting process.
The “experiment” was a Grand Success, resulting in a reinvigoration of the band’s signature sound (which, by the way, still retains the soaring melodies, catchy hooks, and sterling instrumental performances fans have grown to expect from The Neal Morse Band).
