NEAL MORSE TO RELEASE TESTIMONY LIVE 2-DVD SET
SEPTEMBER 15, 2004
ONE AMAZING NIGHT CAPTURED WITH NEAL’S 8-PIECE BAND
PERFORMING HIS EPIC TESTIMONY DOUBLE-CD IN ITS ENTIRETY
FEATURES DRUMMING LEGEND MIKE PORTNOY
Neal Morse’s Testimony was one of the most ambitious and critically acclaimed
progressive rock albums of the past year. Lauded equally by the mainstream and
CCM press, the album received numerous honors, from Progressive World (Top 5
Albums) to The National Review (10 Best of the Year).
“I’m Neal Morse, and this is my story,” Neal says at the start of the performance.
Over the next three hours, he performs the compelling tale of his spiritual and
musical journey. Morse effortlessly combines hard rock, gospel, classical,
country and contemporary pop into one imaginative, totally original work.
The DVD was recorded on one unforgettable night at the beautiful Dutch concert
hall, (named only as a number) 013, during his European tour. The performance
(and tour) won him “Best Rock Tour” from the Dutch Progressive Rock Poll,
besting nominees Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, RUSH and others. (Neal also won
Best Album for the Testimony studio release.)
Neal is accompanied by a stellar cast of distinguished performers, many
performing on multiple instruments to recreate Testimony’s vast sonic tapestry.
Led by 19-time Modern Drummer award winner Mike Portnoy, each musician is a
successful artist in their own right, assembled together to perform this
extraordinary work.
At the center is Neal Morse, a remarkably passionate and engaging performer.
Neal brings his story to life with soaring, emotional vocals. Morse is also a
virtuoso multi-instrumentalist (endorsed by Gibson and Yamaha) performing
lead guitar and keyboard. After the European leg of the Testimony tour this year,
England’s Classic Rock Magazine included Neal in their “100 Greatest Frontmen
of Rock” listing.
Testimony Live captures one spectacular performance on one amazing night. No
re-takes. No studio overdubs. Just 3 hours of fantastic, genuinely live music. And
one incredible story.
