Bullet: new album

The Renegade Creation album 'Bullet', the super-charged follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2010 debut, is released through the Provogue/Mascot Label Group on 4 June 2012 [Cat. No. PRD73842]. With engineering and production legend Ed Cherney (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan) at the helm, Renegade Creation, featuring guitar greats Robben Ford and Michael Landau, bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Gary Novak, offer a collection of tunes to satisfy existing fans and attract a new legion. Delivering a set of rootsy, blues/rock vocal tunes, the band draws on the unique guitar interplay between guitar giants Robben Ford and Michael Landau.

Landau is a renowned session guitarist and solo artist who has played on albums by such artists as Miles Davis, Amy Holland, Michael Jackson, Richard Marx, Joni Mitchell, Steve Perry, Seal, James Taylor, Laura Branigan and more. Robben Ford began his recording career in the '70's with the Charles Ford Band, a blues band with his siblings. As Robben progressed he delved deeper into Jazz, joining Tom Scott's band in 1974. After more than 30 years work, he is one of the greatest guitarists in the world.

Jimmy Haslip is an in demand bassist and record producer, known by many fusion fans as a founding member of the pioneering fusion group, "Yellowjackets." He was one of the first high profile players to routinely use a 5-string electric bass. Haslip has worked with Tommy Bolin, Marty Friedman, Bruce Hornsby, Gino Vannelli, Allan Holdsworth, Chaka Khan, Donald Fagen and Anita Baker. Gary Novak was born into a musical household and began drumming at age eight. After years of studying and working he landed a gig with George Benson and then Chick Corea's band. He has also toured with Bob Berg and Allan Holdsworth.
