by Tony Nesca
Word Music is Tony Nesca’s first spoken word album. Culled from his extensive collection of poems and stories, Nesca reads his work as it was meant to be represented—words as music—and plays electric guitar as accompaniment to his own work.
The words come out in Nesca’s raspy, whiskey voice as incendiary white-light/white-heat stream of urban consciousness, both lyrical and street-tough, often in the same breath. The guitar is dirty-lowdown-blues and rock-and-roll, raw, bare, gritty, passionate and intense.
Like nothing else out there, Word Music takes you through a literary rock and roll landscape ranging from childhood memories to blues bars on dingy street corners, always alive, raw and energetic.
