Nad Neslo Is Back From Gone On Eclectic Debut CD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sacramento, CA-August 8, 2007- Much like multi-track recording pioneer Les Paul did before him, Sacramento native Nad Neslo has recorded his debut album Back From Gone by playing all the instruments himself. The technology may be a little more user friendly today as Neslo uses a Roland VS-1880 digital multi-track recorder, where Les Paul used whatever he could solder together in his garage. The inspiration and passion of Neslo are what make the album the perfect soundtrack for a long drive along the back roads of America.

Neslo plays guitar with passion, purpose, and feeling. A special touch developed over the years compliments his understated Nils Lofgren like vocal style. The CD is an all-encompassing statement proving that indie artists have the talent and ingenuity to go end to end with their process without any outside influences.

Nad Neslo’s path is similar to other artists in that he was a fan first. Listening to music from late night pirate radio stations that played non-mainstream music through headphones was the way it all started for Nad. His dad was an early influence, playing piano with a three-piece band for fun and some extra income. As a teen Nad acquired a substantial record collection and took in live concerts in and around the San Francisco bay area. Quickly favorite aspects of any live concert he attended was when bands or performers would deviate from the norm and go off in an unexpected direction.

Back From Gone embodies the spirit of artists that have the need to explore. Everything about the release breathes of improvisation and long stretches of rock and blues flavored guitar runs. Much like the artists Nad witnessed in live performances, he has channeled that experience into his own music and approach. Neslo’s writing style embraces a story telling aspect that stems from a desire to take the listener on a journey. Neslo says-“I want them to come along for a ride with me and I hope to show them something they haven’t seen before.” He accomplishes his goal with atmospheric and picturesque tracks like “Lonely Linda,” a magnum opus clocking in at nearly 13 minutes. The track burns with the blues and is saturated with guitar rock, all enhanced with a memorable vocal treatment. In contrast, the track “Wandering John” features captivating hooks throughout. Special guest Annette Olsen provides stellar background vocals on the tracks "Peace of Mind" and "The Distance." If varied guitar work, exceptional vocals, and reflective lyrics with long stretches of exceptional instrumental runs are your cup of tea, you will find many gems awaiting you on Back From Gone.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
