The Architect

In May of 2014, Kerry Muzzey recorded a collection of modern classical works for string orchestra and piano called "The Architect." "The Architect" was recorded in the famed AIR Lyndhurst Hall in London, and features the musicians of the Chamber Orchestra of London under the baton of conductor Andrew Skeet. "The Architect" was released in August 2014, where it garnered 2 featured placements on the front page of the iTunes Classical Store, and debuted at #5 on the Billboard Classical chart and #5 on the Billboard Contemporary Classical chart. The album is available on CD and lossless digital audio formats, with a deluxe version of the album (featuring several live performance videos) available exclusively through iTunes. A making-of documentary and several performance videos are also available on YouTube.

Experience The Architect

The Candlepark Stars

In 2009, Kerry Muzzey took a break from scoring duties and dove head-first into post-rock music. And what was originally supposed to be "just trying it out because he liked the genre" turned into two albums' worth of music. Rather than release this music under his own name, Kerry came up with the name "The Candlepark Stars" as an alias, and continued writing in this style as a creative outlet. That creative outlet ended up finding a pretty strong and devoted following, and is a genre that Kerry calls "cinematic post-rock." You can find more at www.candleparkstars.com.
