Jerry Lordan, the writer of the Shadows hit song Apache was on honoured by members of the Shadows and Mike Reid (pictured below) near his home in Bishops Castle last Sunday afternoon.
Slow Road is released on the Fab Tone Recordslabel (distributed in the UK by Proper) on Friday, February 15th 2019.Vince takes the lucky listener on a musical ‘Slow Road’ trip that incorporates an intriguing selection of musical styles and approaches.
As the ten all 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 tangy P90s on his vintage Gibson 330 semi-acoustic, through to a selection of vintage Fender Strats, all matched to whatever song he’s playing.
Vince called on musical co-conspirators Christian Nokes(bass), Tim Moore(keyboards), Gwyn Ashtonon resonator & Lap slide guitars, Paul Gooderham(harmonica), Paul Burgess(violin), Chris Jamiesonand Neil Ablard(drums) to assist in the recording of the album. All of which helps to make Slow Roadthe kind of musical journey that you’ll want to take again and again.
