Band: Neal Storme
Album: Ay B Si
By: M. Loop
Singer/ songwriter Neal Storme writes story songs about the challenges of the common man, loss, love, social issues, and Marijuana.
Reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen, he uses colorful turns of a phrase to engage the listener. There is a larger than life dramatic feel to his vocal delivery and the overall depth of the production.
The album is mostly populated by American flavored rock with a bit of jazz and reggae. He is joined by a large ensemble of musicians listed below who all add their personal touch to bring his vision to life. This is clearly a man who has made many friends along his musical journey and relishes in sharing his music with his fellow musicians and the world.
The album is a far reaching journey through the life, loves and friendships of Neal Storme. It takes courage to expose one’s life and I look forward to hearing more stories from his personal experience.
