ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guitarist, songwriter and singer, Vicki Genfan has been called the 'Jimi Hendrix of acoustic guitar.' A fiercely original musician and composer, likened in review to a composite of Jonatha Brooke from the Story and Michael Hedges, Vicki has been supporting the release of her highly acclaimed debut CD, 'Outside The Box'. Bill Milkowski writes in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, "Her dazzling displays of two handed tapping, bell-like harmonics and funky bass note slapping, along with her deft fingerstyle approach, have guitar aficionados in the house sitting slack-jawed in sheer awe."

Vicki has performed extensively to an ever growing national and international audience. Her stunning featured performance in September 2002 at the International Open Strings Guitar Festival in Germany brought Vicki's compelling and groundbreaking musicianship into focus for her distinct and visionary artistry. Ulrich Olshausen of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung writes, "Vicki has brewed her own style of wiping chords, airy tapping techniques and a precise melody-play that has no name and creates a new kind of singer-songwriter culture."

Transmuting jazz, funk, pop, and world music in a contemporary folk alchemy, Vicki draws from a diverse palette of harmonies, rhythms and modal tunings. Studied in both classical and jazz guitar, these elements fuse with her grace, passion and charisma to create an electrifying and entirely singular sonic journey of depth, inspiration and pure magic.

Vicki's characteristic sounds and tunes can be heard on numerous recordings for radio and television jingles, the Stephen King book on tape, 'Wastelands', and in performances on albums by artists such as Sheena Easton, Donna Summer, Melba Moore and Dee Carstensen to name a few. Her debut CD, 'Outside the Box' has received wide recognition and has won a variety of awards including the Just Plain Folks Awards in the categories of best solo instrumental and female singer-songwriter.

'Vicki Genfan - Live' is a recording of the truly magical performance given at the 'International Open Strings Guitar Festival' in Germany Sept. 2002. Vicki is also midway through the recording of the next studio CD which has a release date of Spring, 2004.

When not on the road, Vicki maintains her home base in New Jersey and performs frequently in the north-east. She loves to teach and sees private students as well as giving clinics and workshops on some of the special techniques she has developed. She is currently working on a teaching video as well as a written music book of her compositions.

Amazing...
I used to want to be Joni Mitchell when I grew up. Now I want to be Vicki Genfan. But, I'm already grown up... so I better not waste anytime learning all I can from her and being blown away listening. I met Vicki at Swannanoa this past July and she is also very genuine and kind. Talented, hardworking and kindhearted, yep she's amazing.

Who's Funkier Than Vicki????
...NOBODY. Vicki Live is spectacular. She's a brilliant musician who also soulful and energetic. I've seen her show in disbelief and now I can hear it in disbelief any time I like.

Pure magic--like no other guitarist you've ever heard.
If you appreciate great guitar, this CD is a must. Genfan's live renditions of "New Grass" and "Outside the Box" are a testament to her mastery of the instrument. No studio "do-overs" here! This is a CD that you can listen to over and over and over and over...
