Album Notes
“Resonance” is the 5th album release from Los Angeles based guitarist and composer Curtis Fornadley and his first actual CD pressing in 10 years.

What distinguishes “Resonance” from other guitar centric instrumental CD’s?

“I believe one of the things that make my music and playing stand out is strong song writing. To me, great guitar playing is meaningless unless it is in the context of compelling music. I hope this element will engage fans of guitar oriented music and keep them listening to Resonance.”

So why, in this age of ephemeral digital music, did you release a physical CD?

“With the completion of my latest batch of recordings the timing seemed right to document this point in my creative musical life with a physical album; something real and tangible, to hold in my hand and share with people. A CD contains music in a digital format but it but also has footprint in the analog, physical world as well. Plus CD’s sound better than compressed audio files.”

“Resonance” contains 13 tracks (3 covers, 10 originals) and hosts a variety of special guest players including Carl Verheyen (Supertramp) on a cover of “Jerry’s Breakdown”. Some of the music on “Resonance” has been featured in production music placements on Film and TV.

After two years in the making, Curtis released the “Tone Wizards” book (print and eBook formats) in 2015, which includes 17 interviews with top guitarists and gear gurus on the quest for the ultimate sound.
“Looking back, many of the things I learned while working on the book I was able to apply to my music, recording process and guitar playing.”

In 2007, Curtis was one of ten finalists in Guitar Player Magazine’s “Guitar Superstar Competition.”

Sonic Ear Candy! Just Amazing!
This album is full of energy, heart and soul! Absolutely brilliant with a variety of styles to resonate with every emotion! From the high energy riffs of "Turn 3 Mach 2" to the soothing melodies of "Letter From Home" this album is a phenomenal display of diversity and outstanding musicianship! The contributing musicians complement each style and song beautifully as well! I have this album in a playlist all its own and is well-suited to have going in the background while working or jamming loudly in the car! In a mainstream musical world saturated with unoriginal remakes and copycats, this album stands out in league by itself and is definitely refreshing! I wish Curtis and his band much success with this album and highly recommend it to anyone who loves music!
