ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One listen through the album and it's obvious that besides a strong desire to inspire social change, Nebulai has an incredible sense of musicality." - -Out In The Mountains

"... it's easy to grasp the left-leaning nature of Nebulai's political agenda... even grittier than most- the instrumentation is what seperates Nebulai from the rest of the angry rocker clan."
-The Valley Advocate

Re-Perkussionz of Sovereign Art(RPSA) presents indie artist, Nebulai. Producing his debut album Odd Man--Out entirely. Nebulai wrote all the songs on the disc and performed them in collaboration with "queer artist/guitarist/singer/songwriter " Antara. Also making a strong appearance throughout the album as percussionist/electric violinist is Derrik Jordan of World Soul Records, along with Cheryl Reid, Toronto's former drummer of the Ember Swift Band, and Dana Shellmire of Deaf Muse Sound, as well as many others.
This eclectic mix of turntables, acoustic guitar, heavy percussion and powerhouse-soulful vocals translates into a sonic landscape of anything from West African field recordings that offer snip-its of spiritual advice from the motherland; or jammin' out to the tape deck in an old beat up bus somewhere in Africa. All this coupled with funk/folk/rock/multi-cultural licks with a raw sociopolitical message.
Nebulai has gotten the chance to share stages with such artists as Pamela Means, Edie Carrie, Ember Swift, World Beat, Ryan Montbleau, Arjuna Greist, Doria Roberts amongst a host of others. He co-produced several songs off the Grandma's Work CD with his fellow workers-Gooselove and Antara in 2001 off the indie label Folk Poet Records. One of the tracks off the album was chosen for a national compilation of queer artists produced by folk singer Doria Roberts. Available in stores nationwide in November 2002, the double CD includes such artists as Ani Difranco, Melissa Ferrick, Toshi Reagon, Alix Olson, Pamela Means, and Bitch and Animal.
The self produced Odd Man--Out CD is a perfect example of independently derived art, fierce in it's execution, pushing boundaries between the genres of folk/funk/rock/multi-cultural. The fresh recording elements that Nebulai exhibits coupled with speaking to direct issues from corporate impact, celebration/struggle of homosexuality, to spiritual empowerment can't help but leave you with a sense of creative empowerment.

Deaf Muse Sound

Worldly lyrical sensibility stirred with a fresh, rhythmatic funk baton.
What do you get when you mix African drums with percussive guitar licks, raw, haunting lyrics, and freestyle soul vocals that echo back to "Mama's Secret Hot Sauce Recipe?" The answer is, quite simply, Nebulai's "Odd Man--Out." Original, passionate, relevant and masterfully-collaborated - this album is the antidote to the burgeoning music-by-numbers culture cluttering the airwaves at the moment. This album is to be played at very high volumes.

Eddie Johnson


Nebulai's Odd-Man Out is one of the most refreshing Cd's I've heard in a long time. His song writing and mixing of funk, tribal, and passion will have you moving to the groove.Mixed with field recordings from the heart of Africa and bits from news events that changed the world, Nebulai has put together a powerful musical journey. He speaks his mind and is not affraid to put it out there. Pledge of Allegiance soars high as an anthem to the gay and lesbian community. Come out America Come out. Buy it now. You won't be disappointed!!!

wowee! this cd gets ya on yer feet!
"Odd Man--Out" is irresistible! The guitars and drumming set a funky beat for Nebulai's and others intertwining voices, while keeping the political and social messages tight. I was sold on this one just listening to the sound clips. The actual CD knows no bounds and i can't wait to hear what Nebulai does next!
