Joe Nardulli biography
Raised on a steady diet of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jerry Vale, et al; Joe's parents' music was all he heard until that fateful day when The Immigrant Song snapped his head back as he exclaimed, What is this?!?! It's been almost a quarter century since then and those riff-laden tunes still turn him on today. Moving on to more adventurous music as he got older, Joe has now settled into a progressive-rock/fusion listening habit fueled as well by his passion for composing on the guitar.

Uninspired by the few years of lessons he took, the bulk of his music education came from listening to his favorite players, including: Jimmy Page, Randy Rhoads, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Steve Morse. Music took a back seat to school and family however, so Joe spent most of his limited practice time writing songs instead of practicing the instrument. He explains, The compositions dictate my playing style; it's working on songs and melodies that I really love to do and that, in turn, shapes my guitar playing and technique.

Born, raised and still living in Queens, NY, Joe played in a couple of vocal oriented progressive rock bands in the late eighties/early nineties. The typical politics of being in a band and having difficulty finding good people to play with lead him to find solace in writing instrumental tunes with a sequencer backing his guitar playing. Joe's first CD was completed in the summer of 2003 and he finally put a band together a year later. Eric Davis on keyboards, Jay Byrd Levine on bass and David Penna on drums have made the material their own and the band has been writing as a unit for a full length CD. The live shows have been going real well as the band hones their chops in anticipation of bigger and better things to come.

An engineer by profession, he has dreams of being a full-time husband and father to his wife and two daughters while sitting in his home studio writing and listening to his favorite music. He adds, I would also love to perform live as often as possible.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Joe Nardulli, as I expected is an unknown musician coming from New York - USA. He begun his career somewhere around late '90s as guitarist releasing his first and only album under his name in 2003. Inspired by guitarists as Page, Satriani , Steve Morse or those from metal/ fusion style he infuses in this album lots of there trademark but aswell melted with his own ideas. The result is pretty much ok most of the time, Nardulli plays almost everything is heared on this selftitled album, guitars, programming , with on one piece a helping hand from Carl Roa on guitar. The music is very much in Satriani direction with a clear prog metal/fusion arrangements, his technique is ok, nothing groundbreaking but more then ok. The music is fluent has catchy guitar parts and inspired solos, what I don't like is the drum programming, it sounds flat and without many contrasts or diversity, on almost every tune the drums sounds the same. NY Drama, Glowing glass or Ad Astra Per Aspera, a name that eventualy he will use to form his prog metal band later on named Ad Astra with one album released in summer of 2008. Ok, a pleasent album, nothing is over the top, but enjoyble if you like instumental guitar oriented prog metal/ fusion albums. 3 stars for sure maybe 3.5 in places.

Thanks to CCVP for the artist addition.
