THE MUSIC

Fernando Perdomo & The Out To Sea Band cover

Out To Sea (2017)
THE WORD

"…This album was really a surprise. Many guitar solo albums are different versions of the same thing; not the case here. From the first listen, ‘Out to Sea’ is captivating as it is different… Out to Sea is an album that must be experienced as it is truly a fantastic piece of art"
- THE PROG REPORT

"From start to finish, Perdomo’s musical ideas grow naturally out of each other, flowering and unfolding in organic fashion even as he gleefully hopscotches between genres.... There’s still plenty of life in the sounds and structures of the classic prog era, and the invention, lyricism and sheer joy Fernando Perdomo brings to this album prove it"
- Rick Krueger, PROGARCHY

"This is a flawless collection of music that was executed to perfection. The guitar playing is nothing short of...amazing"
- Babysue

"There is a lot of guitar all over this album, not shredding sort, rather this is all very tastefully done with a delicacy and lightness of touch that shows some real skill and talent...
this is very fine album indeed and comes highly recommended... "
- THE PROGGRESSIVE ASPECT

"To call Fernando Perdomo a genius is like saying it snows in the arctic. An imaginative artist, producer, songwriter and sideman, he takes his cues from his beloved influences of the ’60s and ’70s – The Beatles, the Alan Parsons Project, ELO, et. al. – and then absorbs them into his own output, resulting in a glorious mesh of sonics and suggestion…"
