Myroslav Levytsky(p) and Rens Newland(g), both great personalities on their instruments, came together the first time in 2001. In the following years a cooperation developed itself between Braty Bluzu (the band of Myroslav and his brother Oleg) and Rens Newland. Myroslav has classical and eastern roots, Rens has Blues, Rock and Jazz, so western roots. They had a small Tour in Austria which resulted in a Live Album "Myroslav Levytsky & Rens Newland Project "One Autumn Concert" released in the Ukrain. This is the second album of just the two, again recorded in Vienna in Rens' Orange House Studio. It's mainly inspirational and meditative solo Piano pieces. Three tracks feature Rens Newlnd on steel string guitar.

Blues Indeed (w. Fuse Bluezz feat. Ric Toldon)

Audiosamples (click to start & stop):

As Rens Newland's roots were in the 1960s Blues, the Electric Blues of John Mayall, Eric Clapton and in Holland Cuby & the Blizzards or Living Blues. and he always tried to keep this deep music feeling in all the projects and styles he did in the meantime, it was no big jump to get back into that and make a Blues album. He and his friend Peter Gruber (bass player) were talking now and then in the last years, that they should do such a project together! Now finally in the Corona times, they did it. Finding the right singer is not easy, but they found him: Ric Toldon is a cool american guy (is also percussionist) living in Vienna, who even met Jimi Hendrix and was around at Woodstock and when the Stones played in the USA. As drummer the young Simon Springer was their first choice, as well as Rens' main keyboard man Martin Wöss for the piano and synth additions. The basic sound is of course build on Mr. Newland's guitars, here he used some of his dearest instruments, like Gibson ES 335 and L5, Fender Strato and Tele, Godin Red Line, Parker Fly and Takamine Acoustic Steel. The Tracks show the broad possibilities of the Blues in form and sound: Delta Blues, Funkblues, Jazzblues, Rockblues, Acoustic Blues and more. Some instrumental tracks are of course also part of the concept! All the music is by the bandleader and most of the lyrcs, some are by Ric Toldon, like "Sneeky C" with humour and desperation at the same time.

01. The Balcony Blues 3:59 02. Fonky World 3:10 03. Sneeky C 3:57 04. Vienna Got The Blues 5:21 05. You‘re So Mean 5:29 06. Blues Indeed 4:22 07. Need A Wah Guitar 4:19 08. Bad Day‘s Blues 5:24 09. I‘m Sliding 4:36 10. Red White Blues 4:53   Cover design by Rens Newland for GRFX

Tribe Trio Tracks

Audiosamples (click to start & stop):
Silent to Strong Wild Coolness  Careful & Curious Sweet Little Devil  
Funny Smart Boy Sage & Singing Good Girl, Mad Girl  Creative Guy 
Wonderful Innocence Jolly, Tough and Tireless 
Feeling Fine Against All Odds The Steady One

These are basically trio versions of all the songs from my former "solo" album "Family Trax", which are dedicated to his people (his tribe). The first production was very precise and with emphasis on the compositions and the many different guitars. Here on these recordings he got the thing more powerful, groovy and vivid by the added drums (Oliver Gattringer) and bass (Willi Langer). It brings up other essences of the characters he describes here. it's an unusual idea indeed to release two different versions of the same material! The musical styles go from Funk and Jazz to Rock and Hip-Hop, but all in his range of taste!
Again he used a lot of different guitars out of his collection to get the right sound to each vision.

 01. Silent to Strong 02. Good Girl, Mad Girl  03. Creative Guy 04. Feeling Fine Against All Odds 05. Funny Smart Boy 06. Sweet Little Devil 07. Wonderful Innocence 08. Careful & Curious 09. The Steady One 10. Jolly, Tough and Tireless11. Wild Coolness 12. Sage & Singing
