Hemisphere best 'World Music Album' - American Dreams
'American Dreams' album review quote:
"Hemisphere does that rarest of things – make music which is both eclectic and controlled. The former term is generally applied to music which is wild and wide-ranging, the latter to music which is “in the pocket,” as the saying goes." - Dave Franklin
Every song tells a story...
Hemisphere draws on Rock, Pop, Jazz, Fusion and Metal to create original and inspired mash-ups that blend influences from multiple genres.
Promoting the spirit of ‘Unity’, ‘Diversity’, and ‘Equality’ Hemisphere takes you on a musical and visual journey.
