Contrarian – Minor Complexities (2007) U.S.A.


Guitarist, keyboardist, and bass player Timothy Boney had wanted to create original music for a long time. He had a long a list of musical influences, but when it came to prog, he was inspired by Dream Theater, Yes, Rush, ELP, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Styx, Triumph, and especially Kansas. Life as an attorney doesn’t leave a lot of free time, so it wasn’t until 2005 that his project began to take shape. The goal was to make music that bore those earlier influences, but still sounded original, and up to date. He also wanted the lyrics to express some higher intellectual concepts.
And here we are! Contrarian was born.
