Based in the musically rich city of London, Ontario Anastatica’s solo member is twenty-seven year old multi-instrumentalist Aaron Gray. Anastatica is a psychedelic, progressive rock project born from a multifaceted need: to serve as a channel for anxious energies, to evocate self-expression and to represent the reinvention of the self. In October 2020, Anastatica released its debut EP titled Empyrean; a euphonic blending of psychedelia, blues, jazz, and progressive rock that forms a soundtrack fit for any cosmonaut’s journeys. Praised for having “amazing instrumentation” with “great cinematic feel” and “big heavy rocking and prog influenced jam”.
