“THROUGH THE ILLUSION”

Album Available Now

Buy/Stream Now!

“Through The Illusion is a journey past selfishness and separation and toward compassion and connection.  

Inspired by philosophical concepts found both in Buddhism and quotes from Einstein, the songs on Through The Illusion explore multiple ways to expand one’s compassion and connection with oneself and the world. Separation is an illusion. Connectedness is reality. And compassion is the glue that can bring both inner peace and outer harmony simultaneously.”

– David Franz

About the Music

“While the mood of the songs on this album may not sound celebratory, the music is a celebration of becoming untethered from the past, from fear, and from self-loathing. There’s hope in the act of breaking free. There’s catharsis in self examination.

“To The Unknown is about searching, asking questions to find a new reality, finding our own ways through the darkness, and figuring out how to move forward with hope.”

– David Franz

About the Music

From a combination of scorching life events, social transformation, pandemic lockdown, and personal epiphany, David Franz has emerged, like a snake too big for its skin, from behind the producer’s console to the front of the stage. Years of unlocking the creative genius of other artists as a co-writer, producer and record label head has led to the evolution and development of his own artist persona.

An examination of the heart of self and the subsequent emergence of a transfigured, healed whole, is strongly represented in the album’s artwork, created by frequent collaborator, Dustin Byerley, whose command of semiotics artfully complements the album’s ethos: a labyrinth meanders the seeker on a seemingly futile but ultimately purposeful path; the snake, the ultimate emblem of the desert, represents transformation, the shedding of the old, regeneration and rebirth, the miracles of the ancient world, and the real, sometimes sharp tooth of the new.
