Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, The Changelings have established not only a devout local following, but have fans all around the world. The band was formed in 1995 by members Paul Mercer (Violin, Viola), Regeana Morris (vocals, dulcimer, bass guitar, accordion, musical saw), Nick Pagan (Keyboards), Chandler Rentz (Percussion, Drums, Bass guitar, Electronics) and Damon Young (Guitars, Sitar, Tanpura, Vocals). Over these few years they've release five albums, performed various live shows all over the USA and Canada and receive radio play all over the world. Now with their fifth album they continue on producing great music for fans old and new to enjoy.|
Their music is hauntingly beautiful, mixing elements of Neo-Classical, Gothic Ethereal and Middle Eastern influences. Some songs are absolutely spellbinding with the soaring vocals backed by excellent music such as with my favorites "Swoon" and "Dulcinea". Others are absolutely eerie with haunting vocals and music as in "11:59PM October 30". Their new album continues on with this great musical style yet brings something very fresh with it's release.
