"Jeremy Mitchell Band - Delusions of Grandeur"

There were a lot of exciting things happening in music last year and certainly many of the acts that performed beyond expectations once again fell under the radar and the select few made their millions as usual. One of those unsigned artist that impressed me the most was guitar maestro Jeremy Mitchell.
Delusions of Grandeur is an instrumental tour de force with 10 rockin’ tracks featuring Mitchell and his band. The trio consists of Mitchell (guitars), Troy Groeneweegen (bass) and Greg Stone (drums & percussion). This is not your typical power trio per say, the offer up a diverse range of sounds, all powered by Mitchell’s slick guitar licks.
It does not take long to realize that this artist is a disciple of Joe Satriani and other players of that ilk. “Closing In” and the killer opener “Weight of The World” was plenty of evidence for me. This does not take a thing away from this talented Australian product. He is at a slight disadvantage being so remote from any burgeoning music scene like Austin Texas for instance but the internet and his Myspace page helps, although he is just making a dent there. As with many artists, relying on Myspace as your homepage does not position you very well. You need your own website, Twitter, Facebook and Blogs to promote your music and network. Hopefully for his sake that will be a well oiled machine in place to promote this great music in 2010.
For the most part this is fast paced ride through instrumental nirvana however the title track takes a few steps back to show the listeners that Mitchell and his band can play tastefully with precision. Diversity is the name of the game with everything you do these days and this soon to be guitar god uses his instrument as a true tool of the trade. The varying degrees of overall atmosphere and a professional approach are the keys to success on Delusions of Grandeur. In a polar opposite turn from the title, the band keeps things real, remains grounded on firm footing throughout this release and even throw in some nice Latin flavored acoustic guitar on”Twist of Fate” as if to say “Yeah we can do this too!”.
Jeremy Mitchell is one to watch and if he uses the tools of technology and networking right you may see his name a lot more in the future. - Muzik Reviews

Bio

A late bloomer, I picked up guitar at age 17 and began writing songs/riffs. Within a couple of months was in my first band "Schizophrenia". After numerous gigs and 2 songs on 2 CD's Schizophrenia -- Australian Metal Compilation '92 (Def) 1992 and Compilation track: Dreams -- While my Guitar Gently Kills Your Mother (Studio 52) 1993 the band parted ways. This lead me to my next outing as a performer/co-writer with "Glass Atom" featuring International Music Aid Award winner Jamie Holden.

The following years I have played in a number of bands, done studio work and even had a stint at teaching. Most recently I have been writing and developing my original music and now looking to consolidate my compositions as part of a band or a solo artist.
