I listened to a lot of KISS during my youth.
I became obsessed with Peter Criss& his HUGE drum kit. One summer day, at age 9, I was in my room listening to ‘Love Gun’. I had a huge urge to try & play to the song. So I grabbed 2 pencils, tipped my garbage can over and began playing to the beat. The very next week I started drum lessons @NewClue2

GETTING TO KNOW NEW CLUE

NewClue – (Metal or Hard Rock)
I listened to a lot of KISS during my youth.
I became obsessed with Peter Criss& his HUGE drum kit. One summer day, at age 9, I was in my room listening to ‘Love Gun’. I had a huge urge to try & play to the song. So I grabbed 2 pencils, tipped my garbage can over and began playing to the beat. The very next week I started drum lessons.
The song ‘Mystic Winds’ derived from my soon to be published Novel titled, ‘Mystic Winds’.
It’s about a challenge between good and evil, and the choices we make, which ultimately determines our fate. ‘Mystic Winds’ sympathizes with the weakness of human vulnerability, and the consequences for the decisions made. ‘Mystic Winds’ takes place in a unique town, where only those invited are permitted to enter. It’s a modern day version of the story of Job.
When we recorded the music tracks,
this song was still only an instrumental. When Neil was recording vocal tracks, he took my new novel’s outline with lyrics that my ex-wife had written around it& he arranged wordings over the music. It turned out so good that the instrumental became the title track of our 4 song EP – “Mystic Winds”. It was released on Unable Records in NJ, at the end of March this year.
I believe ‘Mystic Winds’ symbolizes an emotion and personality trait within all of us. NewClue represents a willingness to never give up. Music is a gateway to a world of creativity and emotions. We, as musicians are the conductors who share those emotions through each song. We hope our listeners will share their those emotions when they hear each track.
We live in New England (CT & RI)
where 5 states could fit into 1 like Texas. I am in other music venues and keep myself real busy with each. I myself, have been able to play drums throughout the years, while pursuing other interests, such as writing and paranormal research.
We feel that the Music business is less profitable today.
However with social media, we are getting our music out there. It is being heard all over the world. We do get pennies from radio play & with that, folks search us out. Your listeners don’t have to search us out. They can go to unablerecords.com/NewClue & download it or grab a CD.
The world is full of pros.
Neil has been putting us out there. He has a go get it attitude. With it & the quality of our music, he has gotten us music awards, signed to a record contract, into rotation with multiple Radio Stations…Oh I could go on & on! The only con is if we don’t go-go-go for it.
Well our EP – ‘Mystic Winds’ is a 4 song release.
Two new songs and two from when we were ‘NoClue’ back in the 90’s. Each is a potential hit. The second song, ‘Hail to the King’ has gotten played on SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/newclue/hail-to-the-king) over 133,000 times & has only been out since last December (online). It’s based on the life of King Henry VIII so everyone can relate!
NewClue has a writing & recording focus.
The world is our stage! We are taking advantage of opportunities available with today’s technologies like this wonderful AVA Live Radio – Behind The Music Interview, thank you. We know we sound good! We are pushing for ‘Mystic Winds’ to be recognized so that there will be need for touring. You can listen to us online just about anywhere but please buy a CD at www.unablerecords.com/NewClueas we await those numbers to grow with downloads.
Well… we are CLASSIC ROCK REBORN with a NewClue.
We sound like a big hair metal band with a little of today’s song formatting (Shorter intros… BANG into the song). Our songs are little stories. They make you think ! If you like 80’s and/or 90’s metal/hard rock (Iron Maiden, Queensryche, AC/DC, Krokus, etc), you will bang your head to NewClue too. We are experienced! We get reviews on our social media pages… I’ll find one that relates and copy/paste>
Cool song, fellows! It sounds like Black Sabbath all over again, but with a slightly new twist. You guys really do take it back to the old days how heavy metal used to be played. I never hate on the old school way of doing things, because truthfully the rock ‘n’ roll and heavy metal world today needs a pick me up.
There is no other way to go.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with a person about to commit suicide… Why?
To let them know that they are not alone. That their life is far more precious alive.
