311 vocalist Nick Hexum is going solo, but not permanently or anything. He is just releasing a solo album. Hexum has announced an October 1 release for My Shadow Pages, his first-ever solo album.
"311 is, and always will be my main priority," says Hexum. "We just launched our annual summer tour and we'll have a new 311 album coming in 2014. But this Nick Hexum Quintet album is something I've wanted to do for a long time. It's a passion project that allows me to spread my wings as a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist. I'm really excited for people to hear it."
My Shadow Pages sees Hexum joined by an amazing lineup of musicians, including drummer Gary Novak (Alanis Morissette, George Benson, Chick Corea), Andrés Rebellón (a Colombian native Hexum discovered at a Musicians Institute audition), keyboardist Luke Miller (Phunkelotopus, New Soul Underground) and Nick's guitar/sax/keyboard-playing brother, Zack Hexum (who has toured with Fitz & the Tantrums, performed with Michael Buble and composes music for film & television).
Sounds like some talented peeps were involved in the making of this album.
