Turtle Bay Resort
Picture a sun-drenched island in the Pacific. A place of such natural beauty, even business seems like a breezy day in paradise. Welcome to Turtle Bay Resort on Hawaii's North Shore.
The notion that there is nothing new under the sun can be both a blessing and a curse to musicians. On the one hand, it absolves artists from any nagging sense that they have to reinvent the wheel with every new project. On the other, it makes innovation seem like a fool’s errand. Seattle songwriter Chris Cheveyo embraces this blessing, but he also defies the curse. The band follows standard Western traditions in their instrumentation, using the basic tools employed in past decades of American and British rock music. Elements of The Band’s folk-infused rock, The Doors organ-driven psychedelia, and Black Sabbath’s blues-based dirges can be heard in his debut album The Sun Dogs. One reviewer was wise enough to note “a sound like this would not be possible in any other time.”
