"Music that sounds like The Beatles and Air tumbling through space - melodic, psychedelic and intensely atmospheric. This album could well prove to be a future classic."
- Q Magazine

Not A Drawing is the 3rd album from New York City resident, musician, photographer and videographer Daniel Carlson. It follows on from the excellent Me You, You Me (2014) and his critically acclaimed debut Aviary Jackson (2010) - "...the great-grandchild of Sergeant Pepper's..." **** - R2/Rock'n'Reel

Not A Drawing is the result of a deeply considered and meticulously executed vision by the artist and his most accomplished work to date.

In the words of the artist himself:

“Initially, I was going to work with the same crew as Me You You Me (all L.A. session players - all amazing musicians) but, once I got done with what I thought were the demos, it was clear to me that they had a feel that was worth keeping. So then I thought that maybe I'd go out to LA and do some overdub sessions with those guys, but by the time I had time to do it, the songs had evolved even further. At that point, I decided that I'd finish it up in NYC and reached out to famed producer Michael Leonhart to see about him helping me finish, but it didn't look like he'd have time in the near future. However, we did spend an afternoon listening to what I had and he had a key piece of advice: ‘less Paul McCartney, more Pink Floyd,’ which was where I'd wanted to go anyway (more synths, more dreaminess).”
