Federico Borra

Here’s what Federico Borra said about his beautiful painting “Donna Rossa”which is the cover of Torch Tones:

“Donna Rossa is a woman who usually  lives in the painting. Sometimes she leaves it, and appears in a dream. When you try to catch her you wake up and she’s back in the painting, not being able to remember her face.”


Blues Revue review of Torch Tones

From the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Blues Revue:

“…Nomad boasts powerful vocals and guitar prowess as well as some imaginative contemporary blues song crafting…Whether wrangling slide or letting his fingers do the talking, Nomad proves again to be a consummate singer, songwriter and player, and a qualified bluesman of the highest order…”

From the April 2012 issue of DOWNBEAT Magazine regarding Torch Tones:

 “…his seventh and best album…his vocals show real emotional engagement…The high value of Nomad’s guitar playing is no more obvious than when he aggressively furrows the rich soil of his cranked-up Delta blues, ‘Poetry in Motion.’ Texture and nuance aren’t lost to sheer force.”
