Six Elements features Stanley Whitaker (Happy The Man and Oblivion Sun) and Dave DeMarco (Crack The Sky, Oblivion Sun) in their line-up.
Based in Atlanta, Six Elements was founded in 2007 by keyboardist Michael (Misha) Shengaout, whose dream was to create conceptual music combining meaningful, inspiring lyrics (like Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “If”) with arrangements in the tradition of Russian Romantic composers (think Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky). Misha spent the next two years developing material for the band’s first album, Primary Elements.
He met guitarist Jeff McGahren in 2009. They hit it off, co-wrote two songs for the album, and spent the next year developing arrangements for their first CD. In mid-2010 bassist Dave DeMarco and drummer Marc Norgaard signed on for the recording sessions. It was Dave who introduced Misha to vocalist Stanley Whitaker), ultimately completing the three-member band.
