Jeff Gitelman is young but his resume is robust. He's worked as a guitar session player with Lauren Hill, 50 Cent, Ford & Lopatin, Odd Future, and toured with Alicia Keys for years. A few years ago he left Alicia's band to write and record as singer/guitar player in Stepkids, the psychedelic soul trio on Stones Throw.
Gitelman's new solo work came on fast, as a natural follow up to his collaboration with Ford & Lopatin. He's the voice of 'Joey Rogers' and the shredder guitar wizard from 'Emergency Room', two seminal cuts off the Ford & Lopatin - 'Channel Pressure' LP.
'Weirdo' is a unique fusion of R&B and disjointed electronic synth-funk. Gitelman's synth-guitar work is masterfully woven into a retro-futuristic fabric of Stevie Wonder-esque melody.
'Weirdo' is the first of Gitelman's new singles surfacing via Driftless Recordings.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
