CD Review: Connecticut Native Frank Viele Heads Out On Tour Behind "Fall Your Way" Album

Connecticut blues artist Frank Viele will be releasing his debut solo album "Fall Your Way" on April 7th through the Horizon Music Group. He rose to fame in the area as the leader of Frank Viele & The Manhattan Project and finally went out on his own three years ago. After honing his skills on the road, the time came for Viele to enter the studio.
 
His new thirteen-song release begins with "Broken Love Song" as fellow blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa lends his talents to the song, making it burn with his fiery guitar playing. The addition of horns by Bill Holloman (Elton John, Bruce Springsteen) on the uptempo "Kalifornia" adds some funk to Viele's bluesy sound, before slowing down for the warm soul touch of "Alexa." The smoothness of his songwriting comes shining through on "When You Gonna Come Home" and his Dave Matthews Band influence comes seeping into "Monsters In The Hall," which would become a great jam when performed live. He injects a shot of adrenaline into the blazing rock of "You Don't Have To Go," before closing with the gentle flow of "I Just Don't Know" as you feel the passion in Frank Viele's voice.
 
Frank Viele had a record release show on March 21st and will heading up to Hartford, CT on Friday, March 27th for a show at Black Eyed Sally's before heading out on the road. He will be circling around back to Connecticut in June with a few shows to end the tour. To find out more about Frank Viele and his new album, "Fall Your Way," please visit frankvielemusic.com.
