Purposeful Porpoise join the GEP family
published on: Wednesday, 27 May 2015.
We here at GEP are really excited to announce our newest signing, Purposeful Porpoise.
Founder and lead guitarist/vocalist/composer Alex Cora envisioned something different for this Los Angeles- based, progressive rock, concept band. With influences ranging from Genesis and Frank Zappa to Jeff Beck and Joni Mitchell, Purposeful Porpoise’s double CD debut was recorded live in-studio with some of the best musicians in the world jamming and creating music that has a live, organic feel that can only be created when artists play live together.
Assembling what can only be called an ‘all star’ line up of musicians, Purposeful Porpoise was conceived not only as a stand-alone record, but as part of a larger, three-album project telling the saga of ‘Jeux D’eau’, which translates literally, as ‘Water Games’. Featuring legendary drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting/Frank Zappa); keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater/Yngwie Malmsteen); bassist Ric Fierabracci (Chick Corea/Dave Weckl) and violinist Ginny Luke (Meatloaf/Dave Matthews) Purposeful Porpoise is a fully evolved, melodic masterpiece full of adventure, ambition and awe-inspiring musicianship.
