The Alchemist is captivating and thoughtful from start to finish. Oberman’s gentle vocal tones are unsurpassed, while the musical arrangements on the album provide poignant tension and drama.
This album is from the perspective of a character called The Alchemist, a genderless being searching for balance in themselves through searching the natural world. It explores the natural elements of earth, wind, fire, and water and seeks balance, redemption, and purpose through the darkness and wreckage of our world. – Eli Oberman
