about

John Tirado es un músico norteamericano con residencia actual en Mallorca, donde en los últimos años ha estado al frente de The Nash, banda de rock enérgico en la que militan el británico Brett Lomas junto a Angel Cubero y Luis A. Segura (ambos en L.A.). The Nash hacen un alto tras 3 discos y un buen puñado de conciertos memorables junto a The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Buzzcocks y Lemonheads.

El debut en solitario de John Tirado es una obra impresionante. No es sólo el resultado de dos años de intenso trabajo de composición y producción con una excelsa lista de colaboradores. Es la gran obra de un artista extraordinario que debe ser reconocido de una vez por todas. Porque en ‘Slow-Motion Party’ se encuentra toda su sabiduría para construir música emocionante y eterna, el resultado de una trayectoria vital sostenida por una guitarra y una melodía, el ardor y el alma de un songwriter eléctrico que se nutre rock, folk, americana, jazz, fiereza e inteligencia para crear una obra genial, estimulante y sin fisuras.

Cada nota, cada arreglo, cada estrofa está tejida con una clarividencia asombrosa. ‘Oh Jodie’ y ‘High Definition’ dibujan la melancolía del amor con trazos esponjosos. En ‘All the lazy stars’ y ‘Gang of one’ participa Norbert Nimpel, saxofonista de la banda de Joe Cocker, para convertir a John Tirado en un crooner por horas. Otro fino estilista como Dani Roth, que ha tocado el piano con los Platters en Nueva York, aporta su contrastada clase a piezas como ‘Let me take you home’ y ‘Who makes you stay’. Tal vez ‘Suddenly’ y ‘Take it to the grave’ (con guitarras de Pablo Ochando, de La Granja) sean las canciones más ‘the nash’ del disco. Es decir, pura fibra y estribillos directos al corazón.

El chello de Chus Coll Moreta en cortes como ‘On my radar’ son una clave más del seductor embrujo de ‘Slow-Motion Party’. Por no hablar del refinado respaldo vocal que la danesa Djana Vallespir y la española Rosa Lopez-Francos aportan al trabajo. Gotas de elegancia femenina en ‘Dissolve’ y ‘Winter by the sea’ para una gran voz como la de John, que luce espléndida, matizada y personal a lo largo de todo el álbum. Mención aparte merece ‘Sleepy Head’. Porque resume como ninguna la magia y la clase de ‘Slow-Motion Party’ y porque ha sido la elegida para realizar un video clip realmente espectacular dirigido por Gareth Hall.

‘Melodías perfectas. Canciones atemporales.’ (El País)

‘Reconfortante pop, elegante y robusto.’ (ABC)

‘Un gentleman del rock, con un bagaje de canciones impresionantes y una puesta en escena verídica y creíble.’ (Mondo Sonoro)

John Tirado is an American musician from New York but now resident in Mallorca, where in recent years has been at the forefront as the leader of The Nash, energetic rock band that has made a high after 3 albums and a string of memorable concerts throughout the world with Joe Cocker, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Buzzcocks and Lemonheads to mention a few.

The solo debut of John Tirado is an impressive work. It's not just the result of two years of hard work and production ended with a sublime list of contributors. It is, indeed, the great work of an extraordinary artist to be recognized once and for all. Because 'Slow-Motion Party' is all his wisdom to build exciting and timeless music, the result of a life trajectory and sustained by a guitar melody, the warmth and soul of a songwriter that draws electric rock, folk, Americana, jazz, ferocity and intelligence to create a work of genius, inspiring and seamless.

Songs like 'Oh Jodie' and 'High Definition' draw the melancholy of love sponge strokes. 'All the lazy stars' and 'Gang of One’ adds Norbert Fimpel, saxophonist for the band, Joe Cocker and James Brown, to turn John Tirado into a crooner for hours. Another fine stylist, Dani Roth, who has played the piano with the Platters in New York, brings his class to 'Let me take you home'. Maybe 'Suddenly' and 'Take It to the grave' are more in the style of 'the nash' in the album. That is, addictive and anthemic choruses right to the heart.

The cello of Chus C. Moreta in tracks like ‘On my radar’ are a key seductive spell over ‘Slow-Motion Party'. Not to mention the refined vocal support that the Djana Vallespir and Rosa Lopez-Francos bring to work. Drops of feminine elegance in 'Dissolve' and 'Winter by the sea' for a great voice like John, who looks splendid. Special mention should be 'Sleepy Head'. For summarized as magic and really unique in 'Slow-Motion Party' and because it has been chosen to perform a really spectacular video clip directed by Gareth Hall.

Track Name: All the lazy stars
Well I can’t disguise
There`s something in the way your looking at me now
Well I hold my breathe and wait for something
That I know that you can give
Like everyone around you sins
So let it ride
Cause you know there`s something out there for tonight
Look at all the lazy stars
As we drive around the boulevard
And if we come around again
Cause I think I might of made a friend
So look at all the lazy stars..
As we drive around the dirty boulevard
Don`t take it hard
There`s nothing wrong with some looking out for number one
And you know I'm just a guy to take you
To the stars and through the moon
And back downtown before where're through
So let it ride..
Cause I know there something out there for tonight
Look at all the lazy stars
As we drive around the boulevard
And if we come around again
Cause I think I might have made a friend
So look at all the lazy stars
As we drive around the dirty boulevard
Don`t disguise what you can see
Lying to yourself won`t free
I don`t want to mess around
I just want to watch the lazy stars
So look at all the lazy stars
As we drive around the boulevard
And if you take a ride with me
Well I don`t think that its for free
So look at all the lazy stars
As we drive around the dirty boulevard
Track Name: Gang of one
Well she`s just like a liar
Well trained in deception
Crude in her actions
I would eat up the attention
Yeah I'm just one of those guys
Who believes every word she says
And I'd follow her around
Like we are Siamese
Take it to the end where the hell is so fiery
I don`t care if the ship is burning down
All around my dreams
As long as I got my queen
She`s like a gang of one
She`ll keep you guessing of what might come
But there`s no need to guess
When you got nothing
She`s like a gang of one
She`ll keep you in line when the lovings done
But there`s no need for love
Where she`s taking you
Now and there`s no need for love now baby
There`s no need for love my darling
There`s no need for love where she`s taking you
Well I know I'd brake her heart
If I could find the core
But I don`t see no need to go inside anymore
I`m afraid I could loose my way
Never to be found again
Yeah and wined up like the rest in the end
She`s like a gang of one
She keeps you guessing of what might come
But there`s no need to guess
When you got nothing
She`s like a gang of one
She`al keep you in line when the lovings done
But there`s no need for love where she`s
Taking you
Now there`s no need for love now baby
There`s no need for love my darling
There`s no need for love where she`s taking you
Track Name: Oh Jodie
Oh Jodie why do you look so pale
It seems you`ve seen a ghost around my face
And how can I adore you
Why your soul just spins away
You are so delicate
Like snow on a summers day
And I want to chase you
Out into the night
Well it makes no difference to me if its wrong
Or right
Cause when I catch you
I know what to do
But all I want to know is if you want to, too
Oh Jodie
Why do you dance away
Its seems you`ve seen a ghost around my head
And how can I adore you
Why your soul just spins away
You are so delicate
Like snow on a summers day
And I want to chase you
Out into the night
Well it makes no difference to me if it`s wrong
Or right
Cause when I catch you
I know what to do
But all I want to know is if you want to , too
Cause when I catch you I know what to do
But all I want to know is if you want to , too
Oh Jodie why don't you dance my way
It seems you`ve seen a ghost around my head
And your so delicate
Like snow on a winters day
You think your so innocent
But baby not to me.
Track Name: Let me take you home
Let me drink in your beauty
I drown at the site
We left in the morning
But it was still dark outside
With a pocket full of nothing
And a head full of gain
We shuffle downtown
In this empire state
The streets are always broken
That their fixing everyday
Just outside the club
Where our welcome was overstayed
So let me take you home
You don`t have to stay all night
We can talk about the love
While we finish this bottle of red
I hope it don`t go to my head
See I'm just around the corner
Down on the left
If I fumble for my keys
Your name I might forget
see I'm lost in conversation
cause Your voice sounds so sweet
Now all I want to know is that secret that you keep
So let me take you home
You don`t have to stay all night
We can talk about the love
While we finish this bottle of red
I hope it don`t go to my head
Wouldn't be right to let you be
This is my chance to make you see
Your sweet company , is what I do seek
Now everyone has left
So let me take you home
You don`t have to stay all night
We can talk about the love
While we finish this bottle of red
I hope it don`t go to my heads
Track Name: Suddenly
Working out the demons I can feel them at my side
So let me open up this heart
And say what comes to mind
And the night you thought was over
but its only just begun
Now your faced with every little dream you thought
You never had
Suddenly
you got everything that you want
But its not for free
Since you burned every bridge along
Come on
And the fear of being lonely
in my head I can be wrong
Push it all down
keep it to the grown
and suffocate for me
Suddenly
You got everything that you want
but its not for free
Since you burnt every bridge along
And now your
Hoping for the best
waiting on the next
wishing all the demons would let you rest
but all you really need
someone to believe
every little word that you could breathe
Cause sometimes you get lost inside
Your little mind
And you know there`s something out there
Left for you to find
And now your hoping for the best
Living up the rest of the night
Oh break it down
Break it down
Oh break it down
Break it down
Oh break it down
Break it down
Working out the demons
I can feel them at my side
so let me open up this heart and
say what comes to mind
suddenly
you got everything that you want
but its not for free
since you burnt every bridge along
and now your hoping for the best
waiting on the next
wishes all the demons would let you rest
but all you really need
someone to believe
every little word that you could breathe
cause sometimes you get lost inside your little mind
and you know there`s something out there left for you to find
and now your hoping for the best
living up the rest of the night
now I know there`s something out there left to believe
Track Name: Take it to the grave
I'll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling
Or I'll take it to the market with me and make some money
I know , I'm all right
I`ll make a living off your little white lies
I know you better then you want me too well
I`ll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling
Or I'll take it to the market with me and make some money
I know , I`m all right
I`ll make a living off your little white lies
I know you better then you want me too well
I know , I'm not blind
A little pressure keeps you me on your mind
I got the secrets that could burn you deeper
Sirens calling to me off shore
Never know what they might ask for now
I`ll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling
Or I'll take it to the market with me and make some money
I know , I`m all right
I`ll make a living off your little white lies
I know you better then you want me too well
I know , I'm not blind
A little pressure keeps me on your mind
Now I got secrets that could burn you deeper
Sirens calling too me off shore
Never know what they might ask for
Make the lying seem so easy
Drag me back into the sea again
I`ll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling
Or I'll take it to the market with me and make some money
I know , I'm all right
I`ll make a living off your little white lies
I know you better then you want me too well
I know , I'm not blind..
A little pressure keeps me on your mind
Now I got secrets that could burn you deeper
Sirens calling to me off shore
Never know what they might ask for
Make the lying seem so easy
Drag me back into the sea again
I`ll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling
Or I'll take it to the market with me and make some money
I`ll take it the grave with me your secrets darling
I`ll take it to the grave with me your secrets darling now.
Track Name: High definition
Razor light
Its over from the other side
What you thought was delicate in verse
Keeps you animated
The stories old
But somehow you were never told
Somehow you can`t figure out the signs where're communicating
Yeah we`re going high .. high definition
Yeah we`re going high .. high definition
But how can I
See myself through this light
Settle down
And listen to the underground
Something you have never seen before
The parts communicating
And what we know
Could never tell the story whole
We would never miss a thing
But now its all been reinvented
Yeah we`re going high high definition
Yeah we`re going high high definition
Yeah we`re going high definition
But how can I see myself through this light
Yeah we`re going high high definition
Yeah we`re going high high definition
Yeah we`re going high definition
But how can I see myself through this light
Track Name: Who makes you stay
I remember you in white when I came out in black
Your beauty spread across the floor
Like silky spider web
But I was made of stone
Like mountains never grow
You were my big surprise this year
You changed my life this hollow cheer
But who makes , you stay
And who cast those shadows in your eyes
Who
Well I was on the take
Cause every night she gave
Breaking through the swollen crowds
And kissing out of faze
But I would drive all night
To get you home by light
The limit was the sky this year
You changed my life this hollow cheer
But who makes , you stay
And who cast those shadows in your eyes,
Who
Track Name: On my radar
With the pleasure seekers all around
You had your fun till you fell back down to my atmosphere
Its such a long way to fall down too
And even if your a satellite
Invisible to the naked eye
Well I'd find you there ,
There`s nothing else for me to look for
Cause even though we parted
I knew it all along
That you were always on my radar all the while
No nebula or shooting star
Could taint my judgment,
I know who I'm watching for
The skies are empty but I know your out there
And what you thought was an easy move
Feels like a set up coming back to haunt you
The skies are empty , but I know where you are
Cause even though we parted
I knew it all along
That you were always on my radar all the while
Feels like we could show it
But the distance did us harm
And you were always on my radar all the while
All the while
All the while
All the while
Track Name: Dissolve
There's no wonder that
Your pretending that this ain`t bad
When every bit of what's left dissolves
So you take up space
And all the air that we could breathe
But no one notices your gone
But I could send out a message that I've been washed away
And I know that if you see it , you`d come and rescue me
Well I could send out a sign
Or just let go ... and dissolve
You got the fortitude
The strength that keeps you still
But I've got time and luck on my side
I`ll make it like we knew
All the stories that bring you fame
But we both know how far that goes
But I could send out a message that I've been washed away
And I know that if you see it , you`d come and rescue me
Well I could send out a sign
Or just let go ... and dissolve
And dissolve ... and dissolve
Track Name: Sleepy head
In the morning light we rise
But not forget the night
Like enemies at the wall
And the light you bring is dark
Not easy to distinguish
But that's only natures way
But I don´t want to stay
Is it easier to leave
What does the body need
To wake up the sleepy head
Well the lines we draw are deep
To cross a path of danger
Will we ever meet
Turn back your one of them
You had so much potential
But now your faded out
I don´t want to stay
Is it easier to leave
What does the body need
To wake up the sleepy head
To wake up the sleepy head
To wake up the sleepy head
Track Name: How much can you take
Your better then me
I know
The way that you speak your words
They cut me to the bone
If only I'd write down what I never say
Like how much can you take before you
Break apart oh
How much can you take
How much does your lonely heart display
I don´t want to see it now
But I know its there
Staring at myself again
If we could leave this place
Right now
Take it to the open road and move around
Change us
Reinvent our love and language that we know
But how much can you take before you break apart
Yeah
How much can you take
How much does your lonely hear display
I don´t want to see it now
I know its there
Staring at myself again
How much can you take
How much does your lonely hear display
I don´t want to see it now
Staring at myself again
Track Name: Beggars and choosers
Beggars they can`t be choosers
It never works out that way
Its easier to take what you need
And save it for another day
Don`t feel your underneath
Cause everyone`s been there before
The system seems to cheat you
Unless you come back for more
Bad times mixed with the good
Make it all seem so real
Like paying for nothing and
Waiting on something
What did you expect to appear
Don`t feel your underneath
Cause everyone`s been there before
The system seems to cheat you
Unless you come back for more
And there`s no need to win
Cause no one has ever before
So ride it as long as you can
Don`t let them stop you
Don`t let them say you can`t
So reach down in there and you grab
And don`t let them take from what you
Should All ready have
Don`t feel your underneath
Cause everyone`s been there before
The system seems to cheat you
Unless you come back for more
And there`s no need to win
Cause no one has ever before
The system seems to cheat you
Unless you come and take it all
Track Name: Winter by the sea
The summer winds have come and gone
But I don`t care
I`m where I belong
Oh yeah
And could it be we`ve walked for miles
Just to come back here where we
Never left
Oh no
If I'm wrong
Well it won`t be for too long
And if I stay
Don`t let it be for just one day
I`m never down
When ever your around
Your just like a winter by the see
Looks like I fell
Underneath your spell
Your just like a winter by the sea
Something for you and me
Well we walk along the rocky coast
Just to find a place to feel at home
Oh yeah
Where the view is open to the eye
And there`s no need to go home
Till its light
Oh no
And if I'm wrong
Well it won`t be for too long
And if I stay
Don`t let it be
For just one day
I`m never down
When ever your around
Its just like a winter by the sea
Looks like I fell
Underneath your spell
Your just like a winter by the sea
Something for you and me
Something that we could be
And if I'm wrong
It won`t be for too long
And if I stay
Don`t let it be for just one day
I`m never down
When ever your around
Its just like a winter by the sea
Looks like I fell
Underneath your spell
Your just like a winter by the sea
Just like a winter by the sea
