Product Notes

Tony Deziel never stops making music.A guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, he is meticulous, whether it is perfecting a guitar riff or working on a lyric.But then again, it's always been that way. Ever since he first saw The Beatles on television, Deziel has been involved in music, whether playing, writing or admiring. He grew to love vocal harmonies and layered guitars, and used them in his own compositions as well as those he wrote with the various local bands he has performed with throughout his hometown. In 1991, Deziel met Jeff Carlisi of .38 special through a meeting arranged by a friend. After that initial meeting, Carlisi became Deziel's mentor, and Deziel began sending him tapes of his own compositions to critique and judge. Carlisi would respond by phone or by mail with his compliments and comments. This is something that to this day Deziel claims to be an invaluable asset to his work. However, Deziel doesn't do everything solo. In 1993, Deziel founded the Connecticut band Sundance. As a guitarist/vocalist, he is one of the principal songwriters in the band. Sundance recently released it's first full-length album, Pearls of Wisdom. The band is a popular draw throughout the Northeast in many clubs and can be heard on many radio stations. The group was recently the subject of a television called 'Behind the Scenes With Sundance' on a local cable station. Tony also collaborated with longtime friend Jason Elledge on Blackfoot's 1994 Rhino Records compliation 'Rattlesnake Rock 'n Roll, the Best of Blackfoot', featuring one of Tony's all-time favorite guitarists; Rickey Medlocke.Currently, Tony is working on his upcoming CD entitled 'Mad Love' due out in the Fall of 2004. Sundance - Pearls of Wisdom What makes a good band great? If the performance is there, what is it that pushes the band over the edge? The songs! Sundance has a Lynyrd Skynyrd or.38 Special kind of musical vibe going which makes their music very easy to like. However, the songwriting is pure gold. Simple effective lines that pack a cinematic wallop. 'It was pretty wild for a Saturday night/The band was blarin' and the ladies looked fine/it looks like this boy's gonna party tonight,' really sets the mood for the rest of the song. And if 'What'cha Put in that Kiss' ain't Top 10 material, I'm turning in my union card. A great band with great songs; what more could you ask for? -Songwriter's Monthly December 1998 Relix Review Sundance is a Connecticut-based trio fronted by guitarist/vocalist Tony Deziel, and Pearls Of Wisdom is the band's debut album. Musically, Sundance's sound is entrenched pretty much in the '70s. It draws on a varied mix of influences from lively country-rock and Southern rock to melodic rock and blues, although it's the country-rock material that really stands out. The band is tight, and Deziel is a polished player with an affinity for fluid melodic solos. This is highlighted in the album's two sharply contrasting instrumentals, the delicate acoustic 'Calistoga' and the lightning fast country picking of 'Mad Road Shuffle.' Best cuts here are the Eagles-like 'Solitaire' and 'Texas' (there's also an excellent cover of the Eagles' 'Take It Easy') and the more AOR sounds of 'Let Me Love You Tonight.' -Relix Magazine: Issue 23-04 - July/August - 1996 Tony Deziel-Guitar World Feature When Tony Deziel took his first guitar lesson at age 15, he had absolutely no idea how to play. Inspired by the music of the Beatles, particularly Paul McCartney's songs, Tony began to practice for hour upon hour. In two short years he had made astounding progress, and began to teach out of a local music store. At the same time, Tony began to cut his teeth with a variety of local bands. After completing high school, he studied theory and classical guitar in college. With a contemporary Southern Rock edge, Tony's music evokes such groups as the Allman Brothers and Allgood, while his solos, combining the bluesy side of Robben Ford with a healthy dose of Warren Haynes, contain powerful does of melody, feel and technique. Currently Tony plays with Sundance, a band with whom he has written, performed and recorded with for the last year and a half. Sundance have just completed recording their first CD. -Hometown Heroes Guitar World Article September 1995 Guitar Player Magazine-December 2007 Tony Deziel 'Lyndsai' Deziel is unrepentantly old school, which means his guitar tone is fat and articulate and the arrangement of his backing tracks doesn't ever veer too far afield from what you'd hear in the 70's. It also means 'Lyndsai' is devoid of anything except beautiful, vocal-like melodies from start to finish. Quite a treat. -Michael Molenda 'SHADES OF BLUE' AWARDS!
