Out of Rhode Island comes the amazing Phil Vincent. Here in your hands is Phil V's brand new CD White Noise. The record contains 13 songs of melodic hard rock written & performed by Phil V with a little lead guitar work by Steven Albanese, Billy Roux, David Zychek and Paul Colombo.
White Noise is Phil V's 10th solo CD and his most ambitious yet - is there no limit to this rockers talent? Phil hase spent endless hours writing and recording this collection of songs giving special attention to every detail of each composition. There were no less than 12 tracks of guitars, 15 vocal tracks and special rooms built for the drums just to get the sound that he was looking for. When you listen to White Noise you may also notice that this is the first Phil Vincent CD with no ballads. It?s a hard rock album all the way through.
Press: 'I don?t know how many of you out there own one or more albums from American singer/songwriter Phil Vincent, but if you don?t, it?s about time to check him out. The man from Rhode Island is a true workaholic, who has released a string of ten solo albums so far, the majority of them independently. The latest one in the row is called White Noise and although the package looks quite cheap, the contents is much better. Says Phil: "It's my 10th solo CD and my most ambitious yet. I?ve spent endless hours writing and recording this collection of songs, giving special attention to every detail of each composition. There were no less than 12 tracks of guitars, 15 vocal tracks and special rooms built for the drums just to get the sound I was looking for."
'With such a wealth of material to choose from, I can only add that the quality of the songs - recorded in Phil?s own Muzik Room between February and April 2008 - is quite high indeed. And what?s more, on White Noise Phil once again proves that he's able to turn his hand to anything: songwriting, arranging, mixing, producing, singing and playing most instruments. Agreed, he's not the best singer in the world, but he's doing his utter best to perform his self-penned material in the best possible way. Don't expect ballads this time around, as all of the songs are mid- to up-tempo melodic hard rock pieces. Conclusion: another enjoyable album from this sympathetic American artist.'
