Neil Alexander & NAIL is the spirited world/jazz/fusion of composer and keyboard wizard Neil “Nail” Alexander, the driving force behind NAIL. During a 21 year span, NAIL released multiple critically celebrated CDs, toured through an abundance of performance venues, and continues to pump out an infectious stream of hypnotic strains. Maintaining an original focus, their sonorous grooves draw influences from Funk, Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Punk, Prog, Folk, Americana, Brazilian, African, Ambient and more, forging a blend that is compelling and danceable.
In a career spanning more than 4 decades, composer and keyboardist Neil “Nail” Alexander made his mark on the international music scene, touring the US, Europe, Mexico and Canada. After playing hundreds of sold out shows with dozens of successful acts including The Machine, The Mahavishnu Project, Marty Balin, Corey Glover, Tim Moore, local hip hop phenom Decora (for whom he was musical director for 4 years), Pee Wee Ellis, Ted Orr, Jesse Gress, Blue Food, Jeff Siege Segal and more, Neil’s established musical mastery is an energy shared in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
