11 truly innovative pieces touching on archetypal Arctic elements of raw natural beauty, glaciers, & ocean rhythms as well as the intuition, sorrow & equanimity around preservation of this frontier wilderness. With virtuoso Matthew Montfort on second guitar.

Drilling for oil in the Arctic Refuge would be a horrible atrocity, evidencing a profound lack of wisdom on the part of our representatives in Congress.

Reviews and Quotes

The rich movements of alan tower's guitar on Arktos are both soothing and unexpected. In addition to evoking nature's beauty and texture, they made me do things that very little new music in this music-saturated world makes me do any more. They made me stop what I was doing. And listen. And feel gratitude.
- Alan AtKisson, sustainability consultant and author of "Believing Cassandra"
