Gathering Fire: is a compilation of original music by Galen Fous, in a style becoming known as Mythic Acoustic Jazz Fusion.
“Galen Fous, master guitarist, is one of those musicians who quietly flies below the radar in PDX… but listen closely to what Fous plays as a soloist or with his quartet and you’ll hear a vast network of influences coming to bear through his unique finger-picked style. There’s a touch of Pat Metheny’s fusion lyricism, some Fahey-style folk, and even a bit of post-jazzish tonality reminiscent of artists like the Durutti Column and early Everything but the Girl.”- Robert Ham, Willamette Week (Jun 07, 2012)
