Description

Chesterwhite & His Orchestra on CD

Chesterwhite is the brainchild of Donny Dykowsky.  Donny, a New York native, started his career singing in bars and clubs when he was only fifteen years old.  He soon went on to travel the North East, fronting a touring rock band and later on earning a degree in composition from The Conservatory of Music at Purchase, NY. This album is inspired by his true-life science-fiction journey. The name Chesterwhite is taken from an old high school teacher. What was meant as a backhanded compliment, Donny found to be reminiscent of such early influences as Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd.  And although CW has been a revolving door of musicians, this record features Dave Dunn on guitar, Seth Moutal on drums, and Freddy Pastore on bass.   Their self-titled, debut album Chesterwhite & His Orchestra (Erroneous Records), is like throwing David Bowie, Zeppelin, & T-Rex in a blender with a splash of George Orwell.  In Chesterwhite¹s words, 'This band is the soundtrack for undesirables. For those on the outside, we're a home for your fears.' The content is an honest look at the world of today and a stranger look of what's yet to come.  It's an emotional romp through the diary of a survivor sidetracked by humanity, corruption, and love. In 'Kill this Town' Donny paints this social commentary: 'Your daddy's giving handouts, crawls on his knees; Your brother's missing class, giving head to a priest; Everyone's addicted, Hell even police; So turn me on turn me off, arrest me; I am your killer...'  .
