about

"Nevel's guitar style is fast and free. Combine bluegrass and acid jazz, or perhaps the sound of a  steaming locomotive. Highly recommended." BRYAN BAKER,  GAJOOB

Some may call it unorthodox, but guitar fans will be blown away by just how commanding a steel string acoustic guitar can sound…
20th CENTURY GUITAR MAGAZINE

Travis Steele Nevels debut CD is a gem of a recording that emphasizes the piercing tonality of Nevel's unique approach to the acoustic guitar. Each of the ten selections on this disc showcase a variety of techniques including banjo rolls, hammer-ons, pull-offs, two handed tapping, string-bending, percussive banging and altered tunings. Every track is imbued with an aggressive attack. - TED SIVERMAN
 
"Travis Nevels plays guitar on his own terms, and caters to a rougher audience. Freestyleguitar is very good." - MINOR 7

Travis Nevels has self-produced a solo guitar recording full of forward momentum and pleasing audacity. His music is especially full of the kind of boogie blues riffs that you might expect out of Billy Gibbons were he to play acoustic guitar exclusively, or perhaps John Lee Hooker at double-speed crossed with a slapstyle á la Michael Hedges. Nevels says in his liner notes that he "plays the guitar on his own terms, doesn’t concentrate on finesse" and "caters to a rougher audience". Judging by the results, I’d say that’s a formula that works. "Freestyle Guitar" is very good. INDEPENDENT RECORDS
