Rens Newland

Rens Newland

From Holland, Newland made his mark on the music scene through decades long work and dedication. Starting with his early years as a Pop guitarist, Newland quickly transitioned into Blues and Jazz. This evolution led him to be a part of the Jazz-Rock revolution, and the USA Billboards Charts’ success of his first album with the band Scope. Among his notable accomplishments over his more than 4-decade musical career, is his work as musical Director and Guitarist for Gloria Gaynor and for The Supremes. Newland is a quadruple musical threat. He is a guitarist, producer, composer, and orchestrator, he recorded a dozen - mostly Jazz or Fusion jazz - albums on his own name, plus several with projects like the famous Ostinato, and appears besides that on numerous albums as a side-man. In addition, he serves as a label director for Jive Music Austria.

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!

This is a very emotional, interesting and important project by guitar artists Rens Newland
With a very precise composing system he made melody modules, blocks or modules
(how you like to call it), constructed out of the names of the people of his tribe. Additionally he tried to weave their personalities, their characters,
music tastes and moods into the compositions and arrangements.
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.
