John Novello To Have New Interactive Blog

LOS ANGELES: (, a web design and website marketing company, has completed designing a new blog for acclaimed jazz keyboardist, composer, producer and music educator John Novello ( ).

The purpose of the blog is to contain links to all Novello’s other sites, including his main personal site, his new online instructional site for musicians, and his pages on social media sites such as MySpace, YouTube and Twitter, and also allow Novello to connect with fans with timely touring and gig information, and helpful music performance tips and more!

John Novello stated “Hi all! I'm really excited about launching this new Novello Blog as it's been long overdue. The Novello Blog is for any musician or connoisseur of music who seeks a deeper understanding of this truly universal language - a gift from the muses! I’m currently in my Studio writing the latest Niacin CD featuring again myself on B3, Billy Sheehan on bass and Dennis Chambers on drums... This is going to be another scorcher! Also my solo project "Novello B3 Soul", coproduced with multi-platinum sopngwriter/producer Andy Goldmark, has just been released on NoGo/NuGroove Records and my single "Feelin The Beat" is climbing the charts. The live B3 Soul Band currently featuring myself on B3 and keys, Eric Marienthal on sax, Bill Sharp on drums and Tommy Brechtlein on drums will be playing the Baked Potato in Universal City May 21st. Stay tune for more touring dates.”

John Eberhard, President of stated, “John Novello is smart to be expanding his Internet presence with this new blog, linking together all his web sites, his pages on MySpace, videos on YouTube, and page on Twitter. He’s got a lot of musical projects going on and this allows him another really effective avenue to connect with his fans.” Keyboardist/composer/producer and music educator/author, John Novello has played and worked with everybody from Chick Corea, Isaac Hayes, Ritchie Cole, Hubert Laws, Andy Summers of the Police, Eric Marienthal, Steve Lukather, to legendary rock bassist Billy Sheehan, Edgar Winter, Mark Isham, Donna Summer and The Manhattan Transfer. As a player he has a worldwide reputation in contemporary jazz and R & B/Soul on both acoustic and electronic instruments but most famously the Hammond B3 Organ.

He is considered one of the world’s most in demand keyboard instructors, clinicians and music consultants and is called on by record companies, film producers, managers and agents to personally instruct many VIP’s at his Los Angeles studio and/or on location. His manual The Contemporary Keyboardist has become the “bible” of contemporary keyboard instruction worldwide and is endorsed by such top professionals as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Henry Mancini, Andy Summers, and many more.
