about

On this cover of the immortal Kansas hit, Magellan will challenge and delight anyone who encounters them with an open mind. Band leader Trent Gardner was also responsible for co-producing/writing with Kansas lead singer Steve Walsh for his solo effort Glossolalia - therefore bringing a credible pedigree and approach to this iconic material.

“…They’ve created something new and fresh while keeping its best parts. Kansas’ version is down-to-earth and folksy whereas Magellan’s take on the classic is psychedelic, syrupy, and spacey; giving the timeless song a modern feel. Replacing instruments with synths, ‘Dust in the Wind’ is given a makeover that will even impress skeptics of digital reproduction…”

“…Rob Lopez’ husky voice has a quality that’s uncannily similar to Steve Walsh. His delivery is distinguishable, but there are moments that are close enough to question whether or not he’s the genuine artifact… Magellan finds its mark through an endless sea of dreary droplets; creating a cover that shall carry on like a monolith amidst the music industries’ incessant tempests.”
