Welcome to The Cosmic Alloy. This is something of a slightly collaborative solo project. This is my first chance as Arthur Dorety to write, sing and perform my own music from inspirations I've had through the years. That said, each player also brought their own special something to contribute, which is why I wanted these players for my music.
The music is inspired by various bands from the genres of Prog, rock, metal, pyschedelic, jazz and jam bands.
The name of the band is derived from this amalgam of varying yet associated styles. Cosmic (space) Alloy (metal)
On the right is the band assembled for this project. As things open and the pandemic hopefully wanes, live outings are a possibility. But that aside I'm happy with the work, effort and unique aspect that each person brought to this project.
