Additional Info:
Somehow in our hunger for perfection its become difficult for music to just be. And so when Bilal began making A Love Surreal (his latest-and fourth cd over all) the acclaimed Grammy nominated vocalist/songwriter /producer knew where he needed to go. Ive always wanted to make music that is so basic and simple that it can be recreated every time. Something simple like a jazz standard. On this album I let go of a lot of shit for the first time and that opened my eyes up to a lot of more stuff. It was a real complete thought.A soulful rumination on loves varying rhythms Bilal describes A Love Surreal as a musical art gallery. As the title might suggest the cd is a reference to the father of Surrealism Salvador Dali. Although Bilal is quick to point out that he isnt a painting connoisseur he loves Dalis work. And has long been intrigued by the possibilities of fusing art and music. When I was younger and living in New York City I becamefriends with a young artist who was making a living off his art. He considered himself a musician and playing guitar would get him thinking about painting. Through him I saw how I could make music out of something visual and vice versa. I was beginning to think in a bigger picture and so, when I went into A Love Surreal I was no longer just looking at things as being just a singer. I really put something into it.
