Album Notes
Practised Bravado is the debut solo album release by Theo van Niel Jr. The record features 6 new tracks of original guitar driven instrumental music featuring Theo van Niel Jr. on guitar and bass, as well as world class drummers Thomas Lang (Paul Gilbert) and Dennis Leeflang (Bumblefoot).

While making a name for himself as the blues rock guitar player with much praised band Mojo Man, Theo was silently working on a side-project, what soon became Practised Bravado. The music on Practised Bravado encompasses a broad spectrum of different musical styles such as rock, country, metal and funk, showcasing the seemly limitless versatility of Theo's playing and writing.

While recording and writing his new music, Theo took the opportunity to seek out for drummers to contribute to the album. Notably, the album features performances from Los Angeles based drummer Thomas Lang, known for his reputation as the 'drummers drummer' as well as his work with artists such as Paul Gilbert, John Wetton, Robert Fripp and many others. Practised Bravado also includes the collaboration of Los Angeles based drummer Dennis Leeflang (Bumblefoot, Lita Ford) and Dutch drum virtuoso Davy Andy Henket.

''I really enjoyed the content. Great feel and spot on guitar tones… Very Enjoyable.'' - Blues Saraceno

''It was a lot of fun to play on these songs, I really liked Theo's playing and the vibe of the songs. They are really well written and produced, and the guitar playing is just in the right place between slick and tight and rough and Rock 'n Roll. The combination of traditional guitar-centered lines and music with the electronic elements really works well and it sounds very modern and contemporary.'' - Thomas Lang
