Review by Ray Cabarga
A new inclusion to his brand of fusion…
Those in the know know when it comes to instrumental rock fusion it doesn’t get any better than veteran guitarist Greg Howe. But his loyal fans may not have known of his plans to infuse his muse with a new inclusion to his brand of fusion. Nor did they know it would mark the inception of a new direction for Greg and his current coalition. He and bassist Kevin Vecchione, along with drummer Gianluca Palmieri originally formed the foundation for a band with a vocalist of the male persuasion. So when Kevin told Greg about an amazing female vox sensation, his enthusiasm was met with some hesitation. But Greg agreed to give a listen to see if she could fill the position and that’s all it took to make the decision.
With Meghan Krauss now in the house the aggregation was complete. They called the band Maragold and got right to work on their self-titled debut album. With Krauss’s powerful vocals riding high on the crest of Howe’s harmonically sophisticated arrangements, the rest fell into place. The energy and excitement of Howe’s scintillating guitar solos are propelled even further into the stratosphere by the blistering bass work of Vecchione. And Palmieri’s drums provide the quantum bump to hyper drive that makes every moment of every song burst into flames as if struck by lightning. It’s an all-you-can-eat musical buffet so tasty, served on a roller coaster so solid, you’ll never get sick of it and you’ll never want it to stop.
Howe has a way of taking the fusion out of confusion with his clarity of vision and technical precision. But when you hear Maragold mostly you’ll notice the reality of their musicality with its full impact intact.

Been dying to hear Maragolds new single. Meghan is a powerhouse and with Greg and the rest of the band I knew something brilliant was coming. No dissapoinment here. Evergreen is Golder is a great tune! A fitting preview to a no doubt amazing album. So nice to feel some fresh air in a world of stale pop regurgitation. Thank you Maragold!
This band is going big places amazing vocals, guitar, bass and drum. Looking forward to the whole album!
