Robert McClung is a multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer who has played just about every style of music imaginable. Touring and recording with acts as diverse as The Commitments, 202 the Band, Nine shades of White, the Makem Brothers and T.J. Wheeler, just to name a few.
In 2009 McClung came up with an idea he would call Telergy, a progressive rock project that would use epic, classically inspired music and bits of radio drama-like spoken narration to tell the stories behind historical events.
In 2011 Telergy sent shockwaves through the progressive rock world with the release of its debut release “The Exodus” which told the age old biblical tale in a new a truly unique way. The album earned abundant accolades from fans and critics alike all over the world. Some reviewers would call it “pure genius” and “a masterpiece of modern progressive rock!”.
Soon after, McClung began work on the next Telergy album “The Legend of Goody Cole” which tells the tragic story of a woman named Eunice “Goody” Cole, who was convicted of witchcraft in the small New England town of Hampton New Hampshire in the year 1656.
Joining McClung in this project are some of the finest musicians from all over the world, including members of such well known progressive rock bands as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Porcupine Tree, Spock’s Beard, King’s X, Hawkwind, Comedy of Errors and Delusion Squared, as well as many players from top classical orchestras. Even rock legend Dee Snider from the band Twisted Sister lends his voice to one of the albums characters (Check out “The Players” page for more info)
As Telergy’s fame spreads McClung continues to think of new ways to bring together great musicians and tell great stories.
