Xavier Boscher :”Embryogenesis” Digipack CD & Digital 24th November 2017 self release. French Pop / Rock / Progressive / Jazz guitarist virtuoso. It’s not easy to describe an album like this, first the “prog” style is not much my stuff but it helps people get the music somehow a place. It’s mainly a musical experience that sends you into a dream world of the artist. The cover pretty stands for it. It’s beautiful , it’s magical, it’s speechless. How a musician gets a maturity with all tastes of music styles mixing them all and gives a gentle new life. Like a new reborn element from this wide universe Xavier Boscher is embarking you into this time traveling machine through musical history and makes it softer than the palm of you hands.
