Joel Cage

Powerful Acoustic Folk

With brilliantly sharp acoustic guitar work igniting his original numbers, New Hampshire based guitarist Joel Cage offers the record buyer a front row ticket to his live performance with his third and latest CD Live: Windmills Are Coming. Featuring seventeen tracks of gripping acoustic folk, the album also includes a solo cover of the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again", which, despite the reworked arrangement for guitar and voice, retains the spirit and relentless drive of the original. Cage originals such as "Food Chain" and "Rose" move with undeniable energy, propelled by emotionally charged vocals and rhythmically dynamic accompaniment. If talented singer/songwriter/guitarists who can deliver folk music with a great rock vibe sounds appealing, check out Live: Windmills Are Coming at your earliest opportunity. Joel Cage was originally profiled in the April-May, 2001 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Joel's approach to his guitar styling, vocals and writing is the culmination of years spent performing with rock'n roll bands, including a three year stint, at a very early age, with the internationally renown touring/recording group Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. He has two previously released CDs to his credit, "Last Hard Road" (1997) and "Nobody" (1998). Joel has showcased at a number of music festivals, and was the grand prize winner in the folk category in the 1998 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. He has been nominated for several Boston Music Awards in the Outstanding Folk Artist category. Joel also was a nominee for Male Artist Of The Year by Jam Music Magazine Reader's Picks for 2000.

In the coming months Cage will be spending most of his time in the studio recording the upcoming three CDs he plans to release in the year 2001. He will attempt to maintain a rather sparse performance schedule (which means 4-6 gigs a month, instead of 15-20!) in order to accomplish his goals.

Hammering Home Guitar Fury

Freewind is a trio from France who are currently circulating an 8 song demo CD-R entitled Ethereal. Featuring the guitar work of Laurent Maillot, along with brother Olivier Maillot (drums) and Julien Lancelot (keyboards), the all instrumental tracks range from rock to almost new age in their approach - sensitivity and grace taking precedence over power or aggression. The opening track, "Believin'", is intended as the single, and features the guitarist delivering harmonic melodic lines and two-handed elements in order to express the emotion of the piece. The other seven tracks, from "Blownaway" to "Neila", represent an analogy between the life of a person and the history of humanity. Every piece is a single thought on different themes of life (birth, time, dreams) in an interrelationship with man's evolution - Freewind is the thinking man's instrumental trio. Freewind were originally profiled in the April-May, 2001 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Freewind was formed at the end of 1998 in parallel with guitarist Laurent Maillot's studies, who, at the time, considered a professional musical career. After recording some cover material (mainly Joe Satriani), Freewind began to compose their first recordings. The idea to make an album emerged. at the beginning of 1999, so the group decided to abandon all extra-musical activities (beginning in 2000) to fully dedicate themselves to their first album, Ethereal. To achieve their objective, Freewind invested in a home studio in order to get a product ready to be merchandised.

Now that Freewind has finished the recordings comprising Ethereal, the group plans to mix and master the album in a good professional studio, merchandise it, and go on tour. The band is currently looking for a producer who can invest some money in their project.
