Description

The new CD Sacred Weapon runs the emotional and musical gamut. Nils' vocals go from sensitive to gut wrenching for whatever song character he puts himself into, and his songwriting has blossomed. He's known for his electric and acoustic guitar skills, but on the new studio CD he also puts to good use his piano, accordion and adds newer instruments like the dobro and pedal steel, among others. The solid core trio of Nils, bassist Kevin McCormick & drummer Tim Biery is supplemented well by some great guest instrumentalists & vocalists. The legendary Willie Nelson joins Nils as duet partner on the first song "In Your Hands", a country influenced song which has a wonderful dobro mixed in with violins, accordion and brushes. On "Whiskey Holler" Martin Sexsmith sings with his remarkable voice and the two voices blend a lovely early country rock sound with Nils' piano and haunting pedal steel guitar, Nils is joined by David Crosby & Graham Nash on the chorus of "Frankie Hang On" which has a fabulous vocal mix. "Can't Take The Rock" contains a rocking vocal duet with Bob Berberich, Nils' pal from Grin, and they sing together "a-la Grin" on the final verse. On his new studio album Nils Lofgren takes you to a blossom field of music - from country to pure rock.
