The best kept secret in music



"Lush, soaring, futuristic jazz that dips its toes in downtempo waters and dives headfirst into stacked, sweeping harmonies. While one's head may fill with oceanic images and twilight afterglow, the touch of "acid" jazz color is fully supported by a foundation of conviction. This is an immense amount of sound and emotion to come out of a mere trio. Giberson's keyboard scapes are bordering on the symphonic, a giagantic orchestral harmonic soup, in the best sense of the word, which is stirred with Balmer's pointed, direct melodicism and given momentum by Kassel's mastery of rhythmic focus. Go By Train is way beyond jazz fusion, wrapping itself around a kernel of cosmic mystery." - www.cdbaby.com

Feeling a bit camera shy


Combining the polished and effortless guitar mastery of Dan Balmer, with the raw swagger and brash youth-electro of Clay Giberson and Micah Kassell, the only sensible choice is to GO BY TRAIN. The self-titled debut release from Portland, OR band GO BY TRAIN is jazz/fusion enough that Uncle Roy can sip his famous martinis to it, while cousin Fiona reminisces about those hazy days in Amsterdam's Red Light District to the trance-inducing sounds that are pure GBT. GO BY TRAIN'S mission is to subtly take over the jazz/creative music scene with a passive intensity and astute musicality that reek of the cool. A fan once said of GO BY TRAIN, "This is what the future should have sounded like"

Hindsight is always 20/20, friend.

GO BY TRAIN, that cathartic voice in this disappointing world.
