ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The debut album of Neil Horsley, singer songwriter and guitarist, features a series of songs concerning people met and places visited while travelling the States. “Road Trip” incorporates wry, insightful and moving songs set to an eclectic backdrop of rock, indie and americana

The album is influenced by Neil’s heroes- the narrative songwriting styles of Richmond Fontaine and the Boss, and the guitar playing of Mark Knopfler, Neil Young and Chuck Prophet.

Accompanied by the MapMakers, songs on the album range from the barnstorming blistering twin guitar assault of “Subprime” , ruminations on being the victim of identity theft, "Some Guy is now me", to the sublimely textured and evocative "Empty House".

The project involves a collaboration with internationally famous photographer Andrew Moore who has provided the album cover art.

Mellow mix of Springsteen and Dire Straits
I loved this album, a real find. It's a mellow mix of Springsteen and Dire Straits. If the economy seems to be heading back to the 1980s, this music is nostalgia that's bang up to the minute! Neil Horsley's breathy, vulnerable but smoky voice hits just the right pitch of reflective melancholy. The songs just pick you up and get going from the first notes, catchy beat, memorable hooks and evocative lyrics. I particularly enjoyed track 1, Hotel Motel, track 4, Empty House and track 10 Company Town. Overall a really good listen, the kind of music you should play whilst nursing a glass of whiskey and staring into the fire, or driving down a great big empty freeway, but not both at the same time.
