ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My World is a sophomore digital release following my 2013 digital release “Where do we go from here?”.

This new production has taken me on a plethora of musical flavors and production techniques. My musical influences have spanned so much over the years, and once again while I unconsciously pursue a variety of genres, it seems the style of what I do is just as colorful and chaotic as the cover art depicts. My World is a genesis of a number of personal and tongue’n check messages that have worked its way into my songwriting over the years.

Once again I was looking for a theme, or cohesive glue for this next digital EP. Your own interpretation of what each track means is up to the listener (that’s one of the many pleasures of music). My hope is that you can enjoy the mixture of sonic flavors of “My World”.

“Always look up to the sky, day or night, and find your place, your inner peace, and cherish those larger-than-life moments that come around, sometimes only once.”

Enjoy and thank you for supporting my music.

Rock on Radio Review by Danny Coleman April 2015

Danny Coleman Rock from Radio Review of My World
Gil Velazquez is perhaps the ultimate in professionalism. Always innovative, musically provocative and technically sound; Gil brings his music to the masses like few others can.

His last EP asked the question, “Where Do we Go From Here?” and for all intents and purposes Velazquez answers it with his latest release; a five song effort entitled, “My World.” Not quite the “Three Headed Monster” that his aforementioned last disc was in terms of various styles; “My World” gives us a glimpse into Gil’s versatile abilities as a guitarist.

From the outset, the track titled “Do Ya Thing,” is a short, in your face, guitar driven power surge, conjures up images of the hippy ‘60’s, complete with kaleidoscope graphics; much like the discs front cover artwork.

“My World Your Fantasy,” combines Latin rhythms with a soulful vocal track that would make Carlos Santana proud. Once again, this cut showing the varying guitar stylings that Gil is becoming known for. Like the kaleidoscope before it; one can sense images of young Latinas dancing in the streets with swirling skirts and hands through dark hair as this tune oozes with sex appeal.

“Need Some Air” transports us to the other side of the international spectrum with style as this reggae style tune, after a brief intro comes at you with gyrating intensity that defies anyone to sit still. “…Need some air before I go into the night…”

The next track, “Poly 527,” brings out a combination of Velazquez’s natural tendency to lean towards different, interspersing funky rhythms with a rock style bridge and some nifty studio effects that have one wondering where the tune is going next. Poly means multiple and Gil has several bases covered with this one which could easily become a TV theme song or some sublime background music during your stereotypical night driving scene in a police drama as the character reflects on the evening or events ahead.

Wrapping things up is “Urban Calm.” This instrumental is a roller coaster of styles, highlighted by Gil’s always stellar mastery of the fret board. A jazz feel quickly gives way to a soulful Latin feel and then reverts back to a snazzy jazz composition. Velazquez’s use of harmonics with well-placed guitar rides allows this tune to flow up and down very nicely.

Over all, “My World” is another solid effort from Gil and well worthy of our attention. Velazquez continues to impress with his talent and is quickly gaining notoriety for his unpredictable efforts. Gil’s refusal to allow his fans or listeners to get comfortable by slipping into a certain mold is both a combination of eclectic and refreshing; making for a fantastic journey with each and every CD from first track to the last.
