2 tone, the eclectic musical group headed by bass player/producer Michael Medina and harpist Cindy Horstman have recently played for sold out audiences on the West Coast to promote their new CD, "Never Turn Back". 2 tone's musical approach portrays Michael and Cindy as the primary writers and players while inviting different prominent artists to perform on each track resulting in a variety of styles ranging from pop to Latin and all styles in between. The CD contains original tunes plus a few covers including "The Look of Love" and " 'Cause We've Ended as Lovers" (of Jeff Beck fame) and ends with a tribute song to the late recording/performing artist Ronnie Dawson.
Guest performers include Lou Marini on saxophone, Bernard
Wright on Rhodes, and Andy Timmons on guitar.
Produced by Michael Medina.
"Never Turn Back should be a welcome addition to your music library if you fancy yourself as a smooth jazz lover or someone who just appreciates fine adult contemporary ensemble recordings."
- Bill Binkelman, Wind & Wire
"Never Turn Back plays like cold ice cream on a hot and humid summer in the Yucatan peninsula. Harpo Marx, master harpist in his own rank, would be well impressed with this group!"
