Neal Schon, epic guitar smith and founder of HOF band Journey, has released his first ever holiday EP that covers such tracks as Ave Maria, Can’t Help Falling in Love as well as including instrumental renditions of Journey hits Open Arms and Faithfully.

Schon founded Journey in 1972 and since then the band’s record sales have exceeded 100 million. The Grammy-nominated guitarist, who is also a songwriter and vocalist, has never left fans disappointed and after listening to the tracks on this EP there will not be a break in that tradition. The guitar work is stellar and the arrangements are very engaging. In Schon’s musical world, neither quality comes as a surprise.

Fans can visit Schon’s website for a free download of the track entitled Ave Maria here.

Good work Neal.
