Live Frontman Ed Kowalczyk Releasing Digital EP

Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk returned to the road this week and has set a November 19th digital release date for his new solo EP, The Garden EP.

The EP features five new songs as well as five remixes. Kowalczyk recruited Elder Jepson (Evanescence, Cartel), Karsh Kale (Sting, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan), Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, Luscious Jackson, R.E.M.), and Juno Reactor (The Matrix) for the remixes.

Kowalczyk also returned to the road on Sunday, kicking off a new leg of his sporadic I Alone Acoustic Tour which has three more dates this month and then resumes in the New Year with dates that stretch into March.

He had the following to say in the EP release announcement: "As a touring and recording musician, I've been amazed over the years at how much my songs develop and evolve from the original studio recordings. With the remixes on The Garden EP, I wanted to try to hyper-speed that process a bit and deconstruct my versions of the songs by handing them off to other creative people right at the beginning. In my view, "Rise" by Elder Jepson (featuring Hawkman) is the perfect example of this idea in action. Half-timed and dubbed out- it's totally different from the original version yet just as intense. It's also much more than just a "dance remix" - it stands strong on its own. I like to think that when you have a great idea for a melody and lyric, what you really have is a kind of seed. And if you nurture it and even take some chances with it, it will grow and surprise you for years to come."
