Elephant Country (Remastered)
John Andre Herrmann
It's extremely difficult to put a label on the music and sound of John Herrmann and Clay Green. The closest I can come is to coin one: New World Music. Behind the haunting metaphorically transcendent lyrics of Herrmann lays the delicate partnership of John's instrumentations and vocals and Clay's fantastic array of percussion instruments from around the world. The duo has woven a tapestry that represents the best of many genres - from rock to folk to new age to world music. John and clay have indeed created a new world of musical experience that cuts across generations and musical tastes. Concerts attract adherents from the ranks of the retired to big brimmed cowboys and all ages in between who have fallen in love with the charms of John and his playful sparkling wit. Clay provides the perfect partner with his quiet dry humor and innovative use of spangles and wrinkles in time. You'll become a devout resident of the new world music of John Herrmann and Clay Green.
