Harry James Angus has announced the release of 'Struggle With Glory' due March 1, 2018
Featuring re-imagined classic tales from Greek mythology, set to a sublime reduction of gospel, jazz and soul.
Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical re-invention. His dynamo new live project, Struggle With Glory, continues to cross musical boundaries, transporting the classic Greco-Roman myths into a surreal world of old-time jazz and gospel music.
If you like toe-tapping, dancing in the aisles, sweating and shouting, but don’t particularly like going to church much, why not try shouting Zeus instead? Revenge, giant beasts in strange lands, the doomed love affairs of Gods and men, and the unstoppable torrent of fate is served up with barrelhouse piano, thumping double bass, soaring church choir vocals and the unmistakeable sound of Harry James Angus’ old dented trumpet.
