Why would a relatively unknown band release a best of compilation of songs that you've never heard, much less include music from an upcoming CD that hasn't been released? A little strange, right? Well, The Square Egg present 'Quite Possibly The Best Of The Square Egg,' a collection of songs selected from two of their independently released albums 'Songs to Live By (2004),' 'The Wooden Tongue (2004)' and a preview of what's to come from their forthcoming CD, 'Things Change (2006).' What else would you expect from the ten diverse musicians who call themselves The Square Egg?
"We've recorded three albums with some really great music that we've sold online, at our shows and on our website, www.thesquareegg.com. We thought it would be pretty cool and actually funny to create a best of album of the music that you'd only have if you purchased the album online."
Decidedly as eclectic as their name is the selection of songs on this collection. 'Quite Possibly The Best Of The Square Egg' is a broad spectrum of our sound and style," explains LEE. There's the social commentary on 'Whatever Happened To Crack?' and "One Day" alongside the more straight ahead hip-hop on "My Wooden Tongue." "As a songwriter, I draw from life as an inspiration - my idealistic vision of life versus the reality so 'With You' and "Our Love" song were added to this collection because they paint a positive image of relationships between men and women," Lee explains.
The radio single "With You," features Milah, a finalist from Diddy's MTV show, Making The Band. Other guest appearances include Geisha Solbarn on "Our Love Song," and "Hello Sunshine" featuring Antonia Jenae and the salsa-flavored, "Woman," which features Noah Bless from Lincoln Center's Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra and Tomas Diaz of Spam Allstars.
'Quite Possibly The Best Of The Square Egg' offers a healthy portions of funk, hip-hop, jazz, spoken word, and R&B to satisfy anyone nostalgic for good musicianship. Discover The Square Egg for yourself, you'll definitely be back for seconds.
