New York City-based Multi-Instrumentalist, Singer/Songwriter and Tater Mansion Tunes Recording Artist JSHELL announces his audio and visual rock album ‘In My Head’ by releasing videos for all 15 tracks on the album beginning January 17, 2023 and leading up to the complete album release which will be available for purchase, downloading and streaming on all streaming services on February 14, 2023. ‘In My Head’ also features special guest appearances from some of the best musicians in the business, including the incomparable Steve Hackett (former lead guitarist of Genesis and a pioneer of progressive rock in his own right), Katie Jacoby (violinist extraordinaire and co-leader of the orchestra for The Who), Jake Cinninger (guitar virtuoso of jam band titans Umphrey’s McGee) and Scott Metzger (another guitar virtuoso of jam band titans Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Wolf!).
“I am excited to share my music with fans of rock music and am humbled by the genius that Steve, Katie, Jake, Scott and the other contributing musicians, vocalists and engineers brought to the project. Turn It Up!” says JSHELL.
JSHELL, who counts such artists as Genesis, The Beatles, The Who, Rush, Queen, Journey, Billy Joel, Iron Maiden, Styx and Phish as key influences, produced, wrote and arranged all 15 tracks on ‘In My Head’ while playing all the drums, bass guitar and keyboards and providing lead and background vocals, rhythm and lead guitar and percussion. IN MY HEAD also features mastering by Grammy Award-winning Randy Merrill of Sterling Sound (Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Imagine Drafons, Muse, Adele, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and many, many others).
