Indie Artist Spotlight #7 – Alan Morrissey

I was looking forward to this one, and it did not disappoint. Being a guitarist myself, an EP titled All Guitar is definitely going to appeal to me. And, if you like powerful instrumental work, you are going to love these tracks. Track descriptions, and links to the episode are below. ENJOY!

Fallout – A track inspired by the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, told from the reactor’s point of view. The song deals with the chaos, rage, refection and ultimately the ‘Fallout’ from the disaster, using heavy funk metal multi-tracked guitars to tell the story.   
Re-Tox – A heavy bluesy number with Southern Rock influenced keyboards to give a Black Crowes meets Led Zeppelin vibe. A drifting rhythmic wander that dials back to the ‘70’s and 80’s.   
Speed Pursuit – A heavy driving number that evokes the idea of high-octane driving, high speed police chases and high drama. Calling back to the late ‘80’s/ early 90’s heyday of British and American metal, the guitar sets the pace with fast syncopated solos, heavy riffing and unashamed solos that give way to a reflective outro. 

These tracks, and all the tracks featured in these episodes, can be enjoyed on the Indie Artist Spotlight Spotify Playlist
