Journey guitarist Neal Schon has premiered his track El Matador with TeamRock.
It’s taken from double-disc all-instrumental album Vortex, which will be released via Mascot Label Group on June 23. It features keyboardist Jan Hammer and former Journey drummer Steve Smith.
Schon says: “I’ve always aspired to be a better player and push musical boundaries. This album is really me – all based on my guitar, which is my voice.”
He adds: “I’ve evolved as a person and a player though understanding the value of being in the moment, letting things happen and not thinking too much.
“There’s an old blues saying – ‘If you’re thinkin’you’re stinkin.’ When you stop thinking and just play from the heart, you discover your voice. That’s the real thing, and that’s what Vortex is about for me.”
