ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the first of a series of digital EP releases starting with “Where do we go from here”. "Nothing More to Say" delivers a rock song of the point in which someone needs to come to terms with an aspect of ones life that doesn’t change. "Spaceman" a psychedelic mix of rock, alternative and space rock textures to take the listener on a carpet ride to find the right place. Finally, "Where do we go from here", an emotional dialogue of trying to explain ones transition in life.

Danny Coleman Review of Rock On Radio Review “Where do we go from here?”

“Where Do We Go From Here?” the new EP from Gil Velazquez is a definite change in direction from his first effort “My Introduction.”

The first track “Nothing More To Say“ starts out with a haunting guitar intro, which quickly gives way to a hard driving upbeat rhythm then just as quick turns to a verse reminiscent of bygone days of Black Sabbath. The tune itself is a nice rocker filled with twists and turns.

“Spaceman” is very different from what I am used to hearing from Velazquez. If David Bowie and Pink Floyd were drinking with Ravi Shankar, I’m pretty sure this is what would’ve come from their ensuing jam session. A mix of sound effects, syncopated guitar and some great riffs propel this tune into warp drive, then back down to earth once again.

The title cut “Where Do We Go From Here?“ is a soulful mix of eerie licks interspersed with a unique barely there vocal track. Velazquez pours emotion into this one from the get go and uses his great playing ability to convey his feelings through his axe.

Overall, “Where Do We Go From Here?” is a true three headed monster of various faces; all Velazquez.
This CD lends new meaning to expect the unexpected; a true musicians work if I have ever seen one.

The Genesis of the Digital Release "Where do we go from here"

After releasing my 2008 debut album “My Introduction”, I had a desire to create more music that dealt with lyrics. Utilizing the ever growing live music scene here in the jersey shore area, my inspiration to write, and refine my songwriting never waned. The continued support of friends and fellow musicians helped me to better understand and appreciate the larger musical picture.

Since my debut release, it has been a very unusual creative journey writing and producing the songs that I have just started to release beginning with “Where do we go from here”. Music can be very personal, and my trials and tribulations of being human in an ever changing state of passion, love, disappointment and pain only helps to channel those emotions.
When writing, recording and performing there can be no walls, no labels, no barriers between the artist and the audience. Music is the conduit, and I will always strive to adhere to that principle.

Originally I was striving to release a full album of 11 or 12 tracks. I soon could see that for me, the process was like two steps forward, one step back. To keep my eye on the eight ball knowing that I had that many songs to produce, it became a daunting task and soon my creative “mojo” was beginning to wane. Then one day I came upon an article that changed my perspective. In a world so connected by the internet, the concept of the full album of days ago, seemed out-of-step. I was questioning the relevance of a full album in the age of digital downloads and streaming singles. From this rude awakening, my strategy has evolved to my release of mini-albums in digital format, each with a relevant theme or emotion. Maybe I have found a compromise of the old versus the new.
Thanks for listening
Gil
