Review by Lyric, BandsBackStage.com
It doesn't take one long to hear the experience shine through in Gene's music. So what does someone do in 35 years of making music? If you are like Gene, you cover everything from Mozart to Zappa. I honestly have to say, that out of all the musicians I have had the pleasure to Spotlight, Gene is by far one of the most talented, versatile artists I have ever heard. I was moved by the pure grace and delivery of his music.
You won't find head-banging, mosh'n tunes here, but you will find some amazing music that is sure to please your ears and maybe even leave wondering "why the hell am I so emotional". Blues baby...Blues!! Gene is an awesome guitarist. With music like this you can picture his performance in your mind (who needs video). It never ceases to amaze me, how one person can possess so much talent. If music don't move you, than you are only getting half of the ride. Strong, passionate, vibrant vocals, Gene will amaze you and leave you in awe. The Dark Horse, Gene's latest CD release, is self produced, engineered, written, arranged, and all instruments and vocals are performed entirely by Gene.
