Product Notes

Beautiful, vibey rock. That's X is X. Elsa Cornish's gorgeous voice floating over dark, lush harmonies and a little fire from drummer Greg Gonzalez give X is X it's passionate yet introspective sound. For over ten years Elsa Cornish and Greg Gonzalez have been professional musicians very active in New York City's vast music scene. Their combined resumes include top notch artists from across the spectrum such as Michael Bolton, Phyllis Hyman, Cecil Taylor, and The Jazz Mandolin Project. Their collaboration began somewhat informally in the spring of 2004 while experimenting with a few songs at Down By The River Studios in Brooklyn, NY. From these recording sessions their style developed with the help of notable musicians Jeremy Wilms (Guitar) and Barney McAll (Keyboards) and would later become the foundation for their debut EP Concrete Reality. NEWS/REVIEWS: Modern Rock, Emo, Lo-Fi, Art Rock, Folk, Indie, Math Rock, Alternative, Synth Pop Editor Pick X Is X - Concrete Reality When you live in Brooklyn, concrete reality can be a way of summing up life in the big city. Elsa Cornish adds her beautiful vocals overtop of standard rock tunes. Drummer Greg Gonzalez is the other main member of the group while they added session musicians Jeremy Wilms on guitar and Barney McAll on the keys as well as others. Their sound can be described as ethereal due to their vocalist's amazing range and the spacey melodies that surround it only further emphasize that otherworldly vibe. -J-Sin CONCRETE REALITY EP Kaleidoscope Sound 'It's smart, it's rockin', X is X combines top shelf musicianship with a driving raw attitude to create a compelling sound that is uniquely their own.' - Randy Crafton, Engineer Producer with Richie Havens X is X VH1 'What a great new sound, it's a very creative, promising project!' -Brenda Freeman, VP of Consumer Marketing, VH1.
