Another collaboration between Casey Crescenzo & Awesöme Orchestra to be performed in concert on Oct. 28, 2016!
"These two albums, Act IV and V, were written and recorded much in the same time frame- though each album retains its own unique identity, tone, and experience.
Act V, however, will be the final ‘rock’ record in the Act series. This may read as though I am abandoning the project, one record early - but the truth is simply that in knowing what Act VI means to the series, and what its story has to say - presenting it in the same form as Acts I-V would be short selling the creative opportunity it presents." - Casey Crescenzo

Awesöme Orchestra players accompanied Casey Crescenzo on ACT IV: Rebirth in Reprise, the latest installment of his epic six-part prog rock odyssey.
"Ambition has never been a problem for The Dear Hunter and here it’s manifested through a huge range of styles from fast-paced alternative rock, to folk ballads and disco-pop, all served against a rich orchestral backdrop. These orchestral elements, though present in previous acts, are now richer, more vibrant and creatively layered." - alreadyheard.com
