I listen to a lot of great music; however, some releases have the power to catch your attention on the opening bar of the first track and hang on to it throughout the release. Award-winning Brazilian guitarist, singer, and songwriter Artur Menezes’ newest release, Fading Away, is one of them. Artur Menezes wrote all songs on this dynamic 8-track release, which runs 46 minutes.

Formerly from the Northeast of Brazil, Artur calls California home where he has earned recognition in the music world as a talented singer, songwriter, and musician, and has won many awards for his guitar work. Fading Away is his fifth album.

Artur Menezes wrote all the music for the 8-track release that opens with the title track, Fading Away, which comes on strong and fast like a freight train hitting you with the rapid speed of his chord changes and riffs, and the lyrics will blow you away and have you singing along on the chorus, a fabulous intro to a spectacular release.

He shifts the album into a slightly lower drive on Devil’s Own, so sit back and listen to his storytelling lyrics of a man whose woman leaves him and the problems that ensue. The lyrics are pure genius, and once again, the musicianship is out of the park.

Next on the play list is Come On featuring Joe Bonamassa, which has some mighty fine guitar work with Joe Bonamassa and Artur layering in the sound. The track Northeast has a blend of Brazilian rhythms and Blues and is another winner of a song.

Other great tracks on the release are, Fight For Your Love, Free At Last (featuring Josh Smith) on guitar, and Until I Can See. The release ends with the song called Green Card Blues about a journey from the Northeast of Brazil to living in the United States. The song lasts just shy of 10 minutes and is a fitting grand finale to a fabulous release.

Until next time, keep enjoying the music!
