Album Notes
Five years after the release of the studio recording, Six Degrees, and the year following the release of their poignant award-winning documentary, "No Evidence of Disease," N.E.D. is back with their latest studio recording, Love & Pain. Produced by Mario McNulty, their latest effort highlights the maturation of their powerful songwriting. With soaring vocals, infectious riff-driven guitar melodies, and thunderous drums, Love & Pain is the next step in the natural evolution of this unique adult-oriented rock band.

Critical acclaim for previous releases:

Oregon Music News: "[N.E.D.] certainly make it as musicians and songwriters full-time, if that was what they wanted", "N.E.D.’s original music is all about life, relationships and human emotion. Influenced by rock from the ’70s-90′s with RnB, funk and folk underpinnings, N.E.D.’s songs have a broad sonic palette and a powerful presence

All Music Guide: "One can support their cause and their music…this EP never feels like the quality of the music is taking a backseat to the importance of the cause…N.E.D.'s music is consistently pleasing."

Forbes Magazine: "It's hard not to like this band."

Originally brought together for the first time to play for a medical conference in 2008, the six members of the band discovered that what started out as a side project might just represent an opportunity to do something unique, original and outside of the box. Band members include John Boggess (Chapel Hill, NC), lead vocals and guitar; Joanie Hope (Anchorage, AK), lead vocals; Will Winter (Portland, OR), lead guitar and backing vocals; John Soper (Chapel Hill, NC), mandolin, rhythm and slide guitar; Nimesh Nagarsheth (New York City), drums and percussion; and Rusty Robinson (New Orleans, LA), bass.

Nagarsheth and Robinson combine to form solid, forceful rhythms that anchor the music, with Soper providing strong supporting work, be it with the mandolin or guitar, often introducing shades of Americana into the mix. Winter's guitar work is exceptional, providing distorted, overdriven riffs as well as powerful grooves that resolve into and out of skillfully placed solo work. On vocals, Hope demonstrates formidable range, with a sound that is part Natalie Merchant and part Annie Lenox. With his vocals, Boggess brings a powerful voice to the mix that helps to drive songs along edginess befitting the band's music.

Last year, Spark Media of Washington, D.C., released the award winning feature-length documentary about the band titled No Evidence of Disease. The film charts the dual careers of these musician-surgeons, from operating rooms to music halls, from conversations with fans of their music to consultations with their patients. It aired internationally on World Cancer Day in 2015. It has since aired to critical acclaim on American Public Television and several international television networks.

In a final overlap between their music and fascinating backstory, N.E.D. is officially part a non-profit foundation in Portland, OR, called Marjie's Fund, which is named after a Portland artist and musician who died of uterine cancer in 2007. The fund is committed to raising awareness about gynecologic cancers and providing monies for research in this area. All proceeds from the bands' endeavors go directly to this fund and the national organization, Foundation for Women's Cancer.

Ultimately, the story of N.E.D. is the tale of the dual lives of six individuals who seek to bring well-being and hope to their patients while collectively writing music that expresses the toughest challenges universally faced by everyone. Fortunately, for patients and fans alike, it is a dual-role N.E.D. pulls off exceptionally well.
