Bloom Creation created an array of sounds at Seventh Circle Music Collective, on Sept. 26. He was the opening act, alongside Still Sky’s The Limit. Robbie Freeman was the main support and The Widowhood Effect was the headlining act.
Bloom Creation is the vocalist and guitarist and he was accompanied by drummer, Tyler Cantrell.
After the house lights turned off, the stage lights remained on and Cantrell struck every piece of his drum set. Soon after, Creation accompanied him as they began the “Opening Jam”. As he strummed his guitar, he tested each and every one of his foot pedals to see which sound it would produce. The two continued to proceed with various speeds and slowed everything down, as Bloom began to sing.
As Creation and Cantrell pushed forward with “10 Million Miles”, they slowly accelerated their sounds and yielded when Creation looked over to Cantrell. After reading each other’s body language, Cantrell continued to experiment with the foot pedals and turned his acoustic guitar into an electric powerhouse. After tapping them off, he was able to thank the audience and he was welcomed with applause.
Cantrell began “Sting” by gradually striking his drum set. Creation soon followed by matching the pace in which Cantrell produced. Creation rested his foot on the largest of the foot pedals, this time around. As he did so, he tilted his foot back and forth to manipulate the sound and it caused the sound to fluctuate with each movement. After Cantrell’s percussion overpowered Bloom’s guitar strums, he let his guitar gently wept.
When Cantrell noticed his drum had won the duel between the two instruments, he brought his drum playing to a slower beat for “Sting”. Bloom left his position on stage—he walked over to the other side of the stage, continued to play his guitar with slower strums and walked back to his microphone to sing again. After the song concluded, Cantrell drank his beer with his left hand and raised both drumsticks together with his right.
Creation and Cantrell ended their recital with “Rain”. Creation began the song with a brief guitar solo, as Cantrell adjusted his seat. Creation tapped one of the larger foot pedals, stepped away from the microphone and continued to play an instrumental. As they brought the song to an end, Creation introduced Cantrell. After the song ended, they high-fived each other and talked amongst themselves.
