"The Concept Album"
First created in 2005, The Concept Album 'physical tracks' are a collection of timeless, honest, classic rock anthems performed live by The Pillow Project, spanning the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Pink Floyd and The Beatles. With the very concept that all true rock ignites a visceral, intrinsic movement in all of us, The Pillow Project is set to recreate and reinvent the raw, unbridled forces of a generation and rock out like never before.

"Is it possible to jazz the rock? ...We've been rocking the jazz for some time now, so why not?" -Pearlann Porter

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
