Feeling a bit camera shy


Tolera Storm is a collection of works by world-class musicians tastefully arranged over modern and traditional dance beats and rhythms. David Lawell, the project's creator, started recording seriously about five years ago - completing two full albums (not yet released) prior to his newly released self-titled album, Tolera Storm. David is the talent magnet, recording engineer, producer, and player in the project. Currently residing in Austin, Texas, he plans to finish his next album on the big island of Hawaii and return to Austin to assemble musicians and take the act live into the remote and the not-so-remote corners of the world. Among the musical talents on this current album, one finds influences spanning from Indonesia to Ancient Persia to deep Africa and Australia. A musical tour of a world we have known and one we have not even experienced yet.
