Sketches (2019)

Coming Soon! Amalgam Effect’s third album and the final instalment in the Alan Quill trilogy is
about to drop. Sketches is the bombastic conclusion to the first chapter of Amalgam Effect’s
career, culminating in a sweeping, multi-parted, hour-long track that gives Alan Quill a sense of
ending – whether cathartic, transcendent, or simply tragic, you’ll have to hear for yourself.
