ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
His musical background spans influences from all genres of music from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Latin Rock to Joe Satriani. With each new piece he writes, Gil feels a story is essential to the writing process...

"Since lyrics are not the main voice, it is imperative that I visualize an event, emotion, a point in someones life, something that can be translated into music with the guitar as the primary voice"

In the GuitarPlayer Magazine 2009 Issue, Gil Velazquez was selected as one of the Editor Top 8 Guitarist based upon a submission of hundreds of guitarist nationwide.

During his musical journey Gil has performed with a variety of cover bands in Upstate New York and Puerto Rico. Currently he has migrated to doing the open mic circuit along the New Jersey Shore. This very diverse area has presented itself with a wide spectrum of musical styles from Rock, Blues, Funk, Jazz and just Advante Garde. Upon starting the open mic circuit in 2005, Gil was faced with a decision as any artist to decide where to focus his energies.

He felt that original music is what would provide him with the satisfaction as a musician to have at least made a mark in time. Gil’s viewpoint is that great cover songs come from original music so that was his artist objective. From there he has never looked back. He credits all of the countless musicians that have shared their thoughts and experiences with him.

In this solo debut production, Gil recorded and programmed all tracks using a variety of products. Gil considers himself a songwriter with the guitar being the instrument of his choice, it is the concepts behind each song that drive him to write and pursue a growing career as a songwriter with the guitar as the lead voice. Gil is excited about the promotion of My Introduction and is already looking ahead to his next CD production for 2009.

Gil has been featured on WCRX Chicago's Indie radio station, RadioUgly (Indie in your face) as a featured artist, and has performed at places such as the SAINT of Asbury Park, NJ famous for acts from Bruce Sprintgsteen to Creed.

Just a guitar lover
I heard of Gil from the Guitar Player Magazine review. I "LOVED" Medius Grind, the heck with the editor's overdone review, I thought this baby rocked. The other tracks really put ya in the mood. Nice driving music.

Donny

What is that sound on Track 4?
After listening to his CD, track 4 in your dreams.. what is that eerie sustain sound he has in this song.. would love to know what it is...

Christine McLoone

Nice guitar work
Never heard of this guy, but his songs are really diverse and dynamic as he states. Love it, can't wait for his next CD as well. My favorite is Medius Grind and In your dreams...thanks Mr.Gil :)

Don DeLapo

Really interesting to listen to over and over again
This guy is on to something. You gotta hear the entire tracks on the CD, there is more for the ear to enjoy than the 2 minute samples. LOVE Medius Grind and Calling....
