Philosophical Gear


Nick Mirisola has been writing songs for 15 years, working with different musicians along the way. Staying relatively underground until recently, he has played at a show at the University of Vermont, and has been invited to play at LeavittFest, his local farmer's market, and other bars and coffee shops. Nick writes most of the songs, playing acoustic or classical guitar to accompany his lyrics and vocals, sometimes playing hand percussion in recordings, and leaves the other musicians he works with to come up with their own accompanying parts. Nick also does the artwork for Meditative Animal. A few songs were instrumental pieces by Chris Plummer, and Nick added the lyrics and vocal melodies.

The song Telescope Eyes was featured on Relix magazine's September sampler CD, with 360,000 copies of the disc being produced and distributed by the world's second largest general music magazine. The song Timed Temperance is featured on Relix magazine's March issues sampler CD - 102,000 copies distributed.

Chris Plummer also plays lead guitar, bass, drum set, keyboards, and does some backing vocals on various tracks. Adam Schoff plays mandolin on some tracks and also sings some backing vocals. John Mirisola plays lead guitar, bass, drum set, and sings some backing vocals on some tracks. Pete Concannon plays keyboard for a recording of Telescope Eyes. Tyler Allen plays drum set for the recordings of The Whistler in the Mill and Telescope Eyes Rachael Bodoci sings some vocals on a track off the album Philosophical Gear. Thomas Forbes will be featured at live gigs on bass guitar.
