Music Review || John Anealio's The Empire State

john-anealio-empire-state-cover
John Anealio is a supreme artist. He specialises in writing songs for science-fiction themes, and is also Wired.com's GeekDad guitar teacher (which is quite cool in its own right!)

His music is reminiscent of 70s rock - I was transported back to wearing oversized headphones and listening to my dad's choice of music. Add to that his smart lyrics and smooth guitar riffs, and you have a recipe for something unforgettable!

Take a listen to his latest release, called The Empire State. It was commissioned by Mur Lafferty and Angry Robot Books for the Worldbuilder project, and the site urges listeners to think of it as taking place in Adam Christopher's Empire State novel.
