NEAL MORSE – Sola Gratia (2020)

This is my ‘quarantine’ album” says NEAL MORSE of his new release, “Sola Gratia”, to be released next September 11. That refers to the fact that for the first time in his career, Morse didn’t have cohorts Mike Portnoy and Randy George in the studio with him in-person to record their parts.
Instead, due to the obvious impact of COVID-19, each player recorded their performance in their own studios with Morse’s original songwriting staying largely intact.
But that didn’t affected the final product: “Sola Gratia” strengths lay in its top shelf performances from George, Portnoy and Morse, a healthy dose of quality material, and of course its pristine production thanks once again to Rich Mouser.
