About quot;Into the Skyquot;: Nick Rosen describes his first full-length offering, quot;Into the Skyquot;, as being, quot;a musical celebration of the interconnectedness of all people and places. The songs are by themselves their own universe,quot; he says, quot;but at the same time they are all connected to the idea of togetherness, and to forming one beautiful, magical entity.quot; on the recording Rosen plays guitar, Rhodes piano, upright and electric bass, and synths throughout and sings on 3 tracks. He's joined by producer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on piano, violin, viola and upright bass. The two worked on the beautiful arrangements featured flying a top Rosen's original compositions. With influences ranging from Sam Cooke, John Coltrane, and the Beatles to Horace Tapscott and J Dilla, Rosen is well aware that he has to put his heart into everything he does. Above all, while listening to quot;Into the Skyquot;, you're bound to hear just that, heart! And oh, how refreshing that is!
