Description

Cosmic Wave is the latest release for Gia Federico’s solo instrumental project Gia G and the first since 2019’s The Ladder. The new EP is her best to date and takes her music in a different direction and higher level. Showcasing her diverse prowess on the frets, with jazz modal and scalar legato featuring in Intricate Fusion and Cosmic Wave, to the acoustic slap song, Reminiscing, which shows another side of her style with a great feel, bluesy runs and phrases. Cosmic Wave takes the listener on a journey of musical knowledge, intricate writing, great for listening when your in your car breezing down the highway.

Track-by-track:
Cosmic Wave – A groovy, upbeat rock instrumental, with great harmonics, whammy bar insanity, technical pull-offs and bends and more of Gia’s signature ‘Tap Harmonic Technique’, while using some jazzy modal scales.

Reminiscing – This ballad shows another side of Gia’s music. Displaying her acoustic playing and slap acoustic playing. A great feel and vibe makes the listener day dream in a world all there own. Along with great solo leads, her lyrical style makes the guitar tell a story. The ending solo is truly one of the best lead solos Gia has done to date with an amazing feel, vibe and phrasing.

Intricate Fusion – A real step forward in Gia’s musical journey. Taking her Tap Harmonic Tapping Technique to another level with fusion guitar leads and phrases while using jazz scales and modes with some intense legato playing plus whammy bar craziness. Mark George’s drumming is excellent with a great groove and feel, flowing and bringing out more of the overall song. Paul Engle on bass is also outstanding, playing in the fusion world of bass, mixed in with rock and blues, creating his own composition within the song. The different sections of the song change, another Gia G signature style which she did on previous releases The Ladder. Interwoven in the track, Gia shows her keyboard creativity with great bluesy, jazzy lead playing to the acoustic ending. The 3 members of the group are a power house with the experimental new wave style on this song and EP. Intricate Fusion takes the listener on a true musical journey.

    Heel wat rockliefhebbers gruwen ervan als de focus zo hard op de gitaar ligt en er geen vocalen aan te pas komen. In die valkuil van overdreven egocentrisme is Federico niet getrapt.
