Album Notes
Cirrus Bay originally began in 2001, as an acoustic duo, Bill Gillham and Sharra Gillham (now Sharra Acle). Bill wanted to create music that would move people in a unique way, using different types of chords and melodies than the norm, but that would still appeal to more than just a select few. They would perform original songs in coffee and sandwich shops, for the most part. One day Seattle drummer Mark Blasco heard them and offered to drum and record songs for a cd. This was exciting as Mark is a huge fan of Nick D\'Virgilio of Spock\'s Beard, who also has drummed with Genesis, and, one of Bill\'s favorite bands, Big Big Train. This took a lot of time as Mark had several other jobs, and Bill had 2 jobs as well. Bill also occasionally recorded at Dave Croston\'s studio in Tacoma. Bill has worked off and on for years with vocalist Alex Brighenti, who does the majority of the vocals for Cirrus Bay. At present Bill and Anisha perform Cirrus Bay songs from the cd as well as music not from the cd. About half of the recorded music was used for \'The Slipping Of A Day\' which is about 77 minutes of music. Bill already has almost all of the next album written, but none of it recorded as of yet.

Cirrus Bay Slipping of a Day
Cirrus Bay's Slipping of a Day is finally released! What a fine album it has turned out to be.

I have known Bill Gillham for over 20 years. We have worked together on many music projects in the past. I was thrilled to become a part of this latest project which Bill has worked on for a couple of years. The music on this album is of a style onto it's own. It has a style which can be compared to 70's style Genesis, Camel or even Renaissance. Most people would categorize this probably in the progressive music vein. It is an album which one needs to listen to several times. In this way it will grow on you and become an enduring part of one's CD collection. Bill has worked many long hours both in and out of the recording studio developing this concept album. I would say this project marks a milestone in his music career. While Bill has had many other music projects in the past this one is the first to be commercially launched towards the public. I wish him much success!
