"Restoring Balance" by The Bards of Balance (Rock/Acoustic Artists from Connecticut(CT))

The Bards of Balance have a different goal than most artists out there and their music proves to be quite interesting. Their album, "Restoring Balance" is a collection of Folk/Pop music written by the band leader Kirk Sinclair to coincide with his book "Systems out of Balance." The music obviously has a lot to say, seeing as it's taken from the 564 page epic from Sinclair. The feeling of the album is some mix of acoustic Dan Fogelberg music mixed with The Schoolhouse Rock sound. The track "Middle Class Harmony" is a good example of this combination. They try to change their style a bit from song to song as you can hear on, "I'm Working," which has steel drums giving it a tropical island feel. "Restoring Balance" features interesting and entertaining lyrics of economical, political, and cultural inclinations and if you are looking to hear something new and original with a Folk/Pop feel then take a listen.
