Nick Schnebelen “Crazy All By Myself”, Vizztone Label Group
“ Not crazy but masterful!…
On ‘Crazy All By Myself’, the new studio album by Nick Schnebelen, versatility is the key factor. Schnebelen shows that, besides being a top guitarist, he’s also an excellent singer, who feels at home everywhere… “
Elmore Magazine – Tom Clarke
Thank You Elmore Magazine!
Crazy All By Myself makes for an uncompromising hour of massive, blues-based grooves. Schnebelen presents two contrasting but well-blended images of himself. For “It Ain’t Me,” he snarls out the lyrics, pulling hard on his guitar while riding the band’s fat bottom, anchored here by the bass of the great Reggie McBride. The funky soul of it brings to mind Doyle Bramhall II and his work in the Arc Angels. But when the rockabilly-driven “Ain’t Got Time for The Blues” hits the bricks, the stylishness of early Tommy Castro gleams, coinciding with the chic photo on the album’s cover.
Making a Scene! – Richard Ludmerer
“Schnebelen once again teamed with Tony Braunagel. The studio band includes Schnebelen, guitar and vocals; Braunagel, drums; Mike Finnigan, organ and piano; and Hutch Hutchinson, bass. Eight of the thirteen tracks are co-written by Schnebelen with some of our best songwriters.This studio recording should establish Schnebelen as a creative force; as a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist.”
