“Soul Shifter” is the 9th solo album from Legendary All That Shreds Hall Of Famer Vinnie Moore. It features guest appearances by legendary artists Rudy Sarzo and Jordan Rudess, with Richie Monica on drums, Michael Bean (bassist from Vinnie’s Time Odyssey album), John Cassidy (Keyboards), and John Pessoni (Drums).
Like his Shrapnel Records Alumni Paul Gilbert, Ritchie Kotzen, Tony MacAlpine, Vin has progressed from his shredder days to a more bluesier sound.
Vin pays homage to his influences on this album that is a perfect follow up to 2015’s Aerial Visions. Songs like “Brother Carlos” that Vin says “I wrote that as a tribute to Carlos Santana.” “Heard You Were Gone” was written about the late CEO of Dean Guitars Elliott Rubinson who was also a member of Vin’s touring band.
“Soul Shifter” has more emotion in it’s playing if that’s even possible than Aerial Visions.
This has what you’d expect from Vinnie Moore, awesome vibrato, great tone, and one of the best guitarists out there today!
Soul Shifter will be out on October 9, 2019
