BIOGRAPHY

Gilbert Neal

Gilbert Neal is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with a uniquely imaginative multi-genre style that’s refreshingly difficult to categorize. 

 

Born in Buffalo, NY, and currently based in North Carolina, Gilbert Neal has performed in various bands, jazz ensembles, and theater productions throughout the years. However, Gilbert is, first and foremost, a songwriter, with most of his lyrics being quite personal, telling a specific story or referring to a particular incident in an extremely eventful life. 

 

Thematically, Gilbert is inspired by religion, politics, sex, loss, and parental love. His sometimes quirky songs can be tongue-in-cheek, theatrical, and somewhat socialist, frequently weaving in sexual and godless messages in the lyrics. Each album is a cohesive (if not linear) piece of work. Each track stands on its own, but each album captures a distinct, complete dynamic. Hard to define. Impossible to resist. 

 

Gilbert has been writing and singing in bands since he was 12. From an early age, it never occurred to him not to be able to play and sing at the same time, write harmonies, and arrange music. His most recent musical outputs incorporate pieces of all of his various musical experiences which include jazz, funk, soul, and prog rock, often with a healthy sprinkle of Musical Theater. (He served as Musical Director for a Buffalo theater group and has a degree in vocal performance/music theory.)

 

Gilbert has been inspired by an eclectic mix of musicians ranging from XTC and Stevie Wonder to Steely Dan, Radiohead, The Free Design, and the Les Humphries Singers.  

 

He was signed to the Wampus label in 2016. “The Mayor of Estes Park” was released that Summer.  2020 saw the release of his most recent album, “Mistakes of Memory”. His discography includes “Drink The Beast With Me” (2006), “Our Deepest Apathy…” (2008), “Vultures and Diamonds” (2010), and “Dirty Red Pagan” (2013). 

 

Working with Producer/Engineer Darrell Nutt, Neal will be releasing his next album later this year. Stay tuned!
