About The Nick Hexum Quintet:

Nick Hexum is best-known as the singer/guitarist in the band 311, with whom he's sold nine million albums and DVDs, scored seven top 10 albums, and had nine singles rocket into the top 10 of the Alternative radio chart (including three #1's). The band is currently celebrating its 23rd anniversary and is in the midst of their annual summer Unity Tour (their 11th consecutive summer headlining amphitheaters). They're also working on a brand-new album. But Hexum wasn't going to let a busy schedule stop him from pursuing his long-time passion project: My Shadow Pages-his first solo endeavor-and the debut album from The Nick Hexum Quintet.

Recorded in Valencia, CA, with noted producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, Sting, Jason Mraz), My Shadow Pages is a departure from Hexum's work in 311, a stunning potpourri with elements of jazz, funk, pop, rock, soul, reggae and blues, a reflection of his eclectic musical tastes.

Hexum is releasing the album through his own indie label, What Have You Records, which served as the home for 311's early self-released albums and works by his brother Zack. "This was a completely self-funded project," he says. "I learned a great deal from reading David Byrne's book, How Music Works, which talks about what it's like to go on your own and not rely on the apparatus of a major label."

The Quintet boasts a line-up which includes Nick's brother Zack Hexum on guitars, saxophone, flute, keyboards and harmonies, drummer Gary Novak (Alanis Morissette, Chick Corea, George Benson); ace B3/Wurlitzer/clavinet keyboardist Luke Miller and Colombian-born bassist Andrés Rebellón, who Hexum discovered via an audition at L.A.'s Musicians Institute.

"For me, the excitement of being a musician is to cull from different styles and combine them in ways I haven't heard before," says Nick about the eclectic mix on My Shadow Pages. "We had an eye on taking jazzy tones and making them funky.

"One of the exciting things was being able to write with other people as a way to break up my patterns. And recording was a faster process than I'm used to. It was just throw and go. We really trusted one another. [Producer] Jim [Scott] said he couldn't remember making an album so good in such a short period of time."

*Offer valid only with purchase of My Shadow Pages. This special offer is valid for domestic (U.S.) orders only. Pre-ordered CDs shipping with promotional items are limited to (5) per customer.
