The music from the incredibly talented musician and actor! Another musical outing for a former member of the Babylon 5 cast, In The Current is Bill Mumy's second album on Renaissance Records, and it demonstrates his incredible versatility.

From the folky alternative rock style of Angel's Observation to the gentle, well-harmonized balled The Climb ( evoking memories of some of the best Crosby Stills & Nash tunes ), Mumy covers a lot of ground. Able to go acoustic or electric from song to song, Mumy kicks off the album with the Dylanesque Lost in Babylon a B5 reference in title only. ( For overt Babylon 5 references, check out Stronger Than Gravity, which is subtitled in the lyric booklet as "To Delenn from Lennier." ) There's even a slightly suggestive love song in We Could Use A Little Something. Mumy skips around different genres like he'd walk from one room to another and yet most of the time ( though not always ) he manages to evade many of the clicha¨s we've come to associate with the various styles.

Charles William Mumy Jr. ( pronounced "moo-mee" ) ( born February 1, 1954 ) is a musician, an actor and a figure in the science fiction community. He began his professional career at the age of 5 and has worked on over 400 television shows, 16 motion pictures, various commercials and scores of voice over work as well as working as a musician, songwriter, recording artist and writer. He is probably best known as "Will Robinson" from the 1960s television series Lost in Space and as Lennier, the alien Ambassadorial aide suffering from unrequited love in the series Babylon 5. He is well known as a player in the original Twilight Zone, especially in the episode, It's a Good Life, where he played an all powerful and amoral child who completely dominates his town. Unlike many child actors, he entered the profession at his own insistance and his parents took pains to make sure that he matured properly in his future.

This included his father, who was a banker, carefully investing his income and as such avoided many of the problems of former child actors like Jackie Coogan. Mumy is also an accomplished musician who plays guitar, bass, keyboards, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and percussion. He has released three solo CDs, Dying To Be Heard, In The Current and Pandora's Box, as well as 9 albums with partner Robert Haimer as Barnes and Barnes.

Their most famous hit is the song "Fish Heads". He is currently a member of the band Jenerators, and they have produced 2 CDs, Jenerators and Hitting the Silk. Mumy is the co-creator with writer Peter David of the award winning children's television series Space Cases. The two have also written screenplays, comic books and short stories together.
