Review: Crossing the Great Divide – Franky Perez

Perez has had a long and varied career, fronting Apocalyptica and The Doors at the 2012 Sunset Strip Music Festival, and working with the likes of Darius Rucker and Ringo Starr.

Perez soaks up all the experiences he’s had within the music industry like a sponge. The album is a companion to the documentary he made in 2020 of the same name which saw him travel across the country on his motorcycle, playing for healthcare workers and patients and trading stories with fellow musicians and entertainers like the Soul Rebels, Randy Travis and Bill Burr.

The melodies and hooks on this record are it’s real standout feature as they get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The album takes you on a journey of self discovery whilst the production matches the themes of travel and open space. The Cello is particularly effective. The title track is a particular highlight, well produced with a fantastic vocal performance. To summarise this record will transport you on a journey that can be enjoyed by all music lovers.
