Stories of small town America unfold over infectious grooves, with stretches of creamy lead guitar as long as Nevada''s loneliest highway. Nad Neslo fully embraces a sound and a style that is reminiscent of the music of the 70''s. The songs tend to be long, the lyrics tell a story and there''s plenty of lead guitar throughout. Think of it as lost highway music. It''s like the places between destinations where there are often long stretches of two-lane blacktop with the occasional lonely little town. Eerily empty, forgotten towns that spark curiosity and stay on your mind long after the trip is over. It offers a kind of magic that can''t be found while racing down the interstate. And so, this music, like a good back road adventure, takes it time and is not afraid to wander off the beaten path.
Nad started out playing drums after a friend sold him an old Ludwig kit. He found the drums infectious and honed his skills through regular jam sessions with other musician friends. Always intrigued with recording, he often taped the jam sessions using an old Akai two track recorder. As
situations changed (people getting married, moving away, etc) Nad decided that he wanted to learn an instrument that would allow him to write and record his own songs. It was about this time that his wife surprised him with a Yamaha keyboard. He learned his way around, but admittedly, never progressed beyond that of a "convincing doodler." (By the way, that doodling can be heard on his recordings such as the tasty piano fills on his song The Distance.) Not finding fulfillment with the keyboard, Nad decided what he really wanted to play was guitar. After buying a used Fender Strat and a Marshall amp, there was no looking back. Daily practice paid off and he soon found his own sound and style.
Since then Nad has added several acoustic and electric guitars, two vintage vacuum tube amplifiers, a bass guitar and various effects devices to his musical toy chest. He''s gone from recording with the old Akai tape recorder, to a 4-track cassette and now uses a Roland VS digital multi-track. He finds all aspects completely rewarding; the song writing, playing the various instruments, as well as the challenge of getting good sound quality on his recordings.
BACK FROM GONE is Nad Neslo''s first official release with Nad playing all the instruments as well as assuming the role of recording engineer and producer. Nad wrote all the songs, the only exception being his rendition of Neil Young''s Cortez the Killer. Nad''s wife, Annette, provides stellar back up vocals on Peace of Mind and The Distance.
Nad has already begun writing new songs for his next release. His goal is to always be moving forward musically while continuing to expand his knowledge of recording techniques.
BACK FROM GONE, perfect for roads that are a little too long, a little too lonely and likely to get you lost.
