Album Notes
The Great Escape is the solo debut album from producer, writer and muliti-instrumentalist, John Van Ness. It is an eclectic 13 song collection of original compositions that seamlessly fuses neo-soul/RnB, pop, rock and Jazz.
Although always a song-writer first, the fact that guitar is John' s primary instrument is quite evident on The Great Escape. Whether it be the warm jazzy tones on tracks like February and Some Kind of Light, the Hendrix-esq lead/rhythm styling heard on For Love and Only Want You to Dance or the strait-forward rock n' roll approach to I Can't Hide and Shining, The Great Escape presents a plethora of great guitar moments.
The pursuit of love, happiness and acceptance is the glue that binds the songs on The Great Escape. The album Features guest vocal performances from up-and-coming RnB Star Tauree (I Can’t Hide, Ooh No, February) and long-time collaborator/brother Joshua Van Ness (Another Love Song, which also include Joshua on guitar and drums). Joshua also plays drums February and The Great Escape (title track).
