Justin Francoeur

Moving Through Universes
Self-released

It's fairly clear from the opening cut of Justin Francoeur's debut, Moving Through Universes, what an ambitious undertaking the disc was: "Gravity" starts off with a rock groove and gradually works in various worldly elements such as the erhu, a Chinese stringed instrument played here by Brian Mullins. Francoeur clearly has an affinity for Peter Gabriel, as evidenced by the title track and the Native American-flavored "Hoka Hey"; he also has a flair for making things fairly dramatic at times with his use of dynamics. While Francoeur sings and plays numerous instruments and does the programming on the ten-song disc, some of Denver's finest musicians, including Ron Miles, Tony Black, Artie Moore and Damon Scott, lend their skills to the album, which at times is rather epic.
