Biography

A Hi-Tech Jazz Funk Experience -
Led by synth wizard Neil Alexander (the Machine, The Mahavishnu Project), the all instrumental Neil Alexander & NAIL seeks to broaden the landscape of Jazz and improvised music. With stylistic diversity and fierce musicianship, they skillfully blend modern and traditional forms with experimental concepts and hi tech electronic music, fusing it into an grooving, accessible sound that’s mesmerizing. Featuring bassist Charlie Kniceley and drummer Nadav Zelniker, NAIL brings audiences a unique celebration of life and music. Their performance roster includes The Blue Note in NYC; opening for the likes of John Scofield, and performing at many other festivals and clubs. They’re currently touring to support their 3rd CD “Tugging At The Infinite”, featuring the smash hit “Everyman”. They have recently added all acoustic shows, demonstrating their remarkable versatility.
Starting with classical music at age 8, Keyboardist NEIL ALEXANDER fell in love with the sound of the synthesizer after hearing “Switched on Bach”. It would be another 7 years before he got his first synth. From then on he spent as much time becoming an expert programmer as well as a first rate pianist. Listening to keyboard heavy bands like ELP, Yes and Genesis growing up, another significant change came when he first heard the Mahavishnu Orchestra: Jazz! Since then he has performed continuously for 30+ years. He works with music in all forms and styles from Composer/Arranger and Production of Live Sound to Musical Theater, Modern Dance and Film.
