Pretz is the electronica project name of Neil Cowley who is a writer, producer and musician.

Past projects he has been involved in include keyboard player for Zero 7. He toured with them for their first album and recorded with them on their second album. At the same time as playing for Zero 7 he was involved in Fragile State. The Fragile State project became ‘all-consuming’ and Neil made the decision to concentrate on Fragile State.

Aside from his Pretz project, Neil is also involved in the project “The Neil Cowley Trio”. He writes music for piano for the trio, they rehearse the music, develop it and then eventually record it.

    Soundcastle is most excellent. I love the synthesis of jazz and electronic (I'm increasingly drawn to both of these genres). I suggest buying a nice pair of bass capable earbuds; the album becomes quite the ride! Thanks Neil!

    Amazing, hasn't left the CD player/iPod for weeks. More please! I'm amazed that the masses haven't found out about the Soundcastles album yet. That said, as much as I want everyone to know about it, I'm secretly pleased with my little musical secret.
