SLOW ROAD is the debut album by British singer/songwriter/guitarist Vince Neads, released on the Fab Tone Records label (distribution in the UK by Proper) . Vince takes the lucky listener on a musical ‘Slow Road’ trip that incorporates an intriguing selection of musical styles and approaches.
As the ten self-composed tracks unfold, his talent for tailoring quality arrangements to complement the mood conjured up in the song really comes into its own. This artful mixing and matching often takes place within the same song.
Fans of a good guitar sound will find much to savour on Slow Road, too. Neads goes from the fat tone humbuckers of a Les Paul, through to twangy P90s on his vintage Gibson 330 semi-acoustic, through to a selection of vintage Fender Stratocasters, all matched to whatever song he’s playing.
Vince called on musical co-conspirators Christian Nokes (bass), Tim Moore (keyboards), Gwyn Ashton on resonator & Lap slide guitars, Paul Gooderham (harmonica), Paul Burgess (violin), Chris Jamieson and Neil Ablard (drums) to assist in the recording of the album. All of which helps to make Slow Road the kind of musical journey that you’ll want to take again and again.....
