Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - Jan 25, 2019 - When you yourself are a sought-after guitarist, and the legendary Steve Vai has positive things to say about a new project, that’s as good as it gets. Andrew Synowiec’s debut single, “Albuquerque Blues” from his soon-to-be-released album, “Second Story” (May 3) was released on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. The positive reviews and reaction have come from all sides including journalists and peers alike.
Here’s what Steve Vai had to say to Andrew: “I really like the sound of this record. Has an analog feel and total group dynamic. Your tone is off the hook beautiful, and the guitar is presented on a silver platter. I also love the daring nature of your melodies and solos. Amazing technique, feel, tone, note choice, and phrasing. This is such an impressive sounding and performed record. Feels like you and the boys were actually having a lot of fun with it.”
Never one to rest on his laurels, Andrew will release the second single from the upcoming Album on Jan. 25, 2019, entitled, “Gift Horse.”
With a Crisp double-drum attack on a 7/4 funk groove, on “Gift Horse,” Sean Hurley lays down a super-solid foundation on his signature P-Bass. Fred Kron delivers a trippy Rhodes solo. Andrew’s guitar solo channels equal parts Jeff Beck and Robben Ford while making good use of a psychedelic ring-modulator effect on the melody statement.
