Renowned guitarist Greg Howe, widely known for his rock / fusion instrumental recordings, had been considering doing an album featuring vocal-driven songs for quite a while. Long time friend, bassist Kevin Vecchione, had played on Greg’s “Five” album, as well as having toured with Greg previously.Through the years, over the course of their enduring friendship, Greg and Kevin had been discussing and mulling over the idea of being in a band together… They finally decided to stop talking and start acting, and the seeds of the band “Maragold” were sown. Drummer Gianluca Palmieri, who had also toured with Greg, and played on his recent album “Sound Proof”, was recruited to complete their dynamic rhythm section.

All they needed was “the voice”…

Kevin had Greg listen to some demos he had done with the new singer, Meghan Krauss. Greg enthusiastically agreed that she had “the voice”, but Meghan’s presence, personality, image, and especially her ability to inject herself into a song, truly made her the “total package” that they wanted in a vocalist. Meghan agreed to take on the duties as lead singer; Greg and Kevin immediately went to work writing songs befitting her vocal style.

The results are the ten amazing songs on the debut self-titled album, “MARAGOLD”. Combining exemplary musicianship and powerhouse vocals with provocative songwriting, the album represents a daring new direction for Greg Howe, which is sure to be an exciting experience for his fans, old and new.


One is the brainchild of 19 year old Polish guitar wizard, Adam Malicki and the band is based in both Warsaw, Poland and in LA. The LA version of the band features drummer Jeff Bowders (Shakira, Scott Ian, George Lynch, etc) and bassist, Dave Filice (American Idol band, Bono, Richie Kotzen, etc). Jeff and Dave are also playing on the album as is Paul Gilbert. Jun Murakawa (Buckcherry, Monster Magnet, Nine Inch Nails, etc) is engineering and mixing the record.

The Polish version of the band has toured with Black Label Society, as well as headlining their own shows, drawing up to 5,000 fans a night. They played this past New Year’s Eve to 300,000+ in Warsaw. They’ve also had chart topping albums and singles in Poland.

The Nili Brosh Band

Nili Brosh was born and raised in Rishon LeZion, Israel. She was always inspired by her older brother Ethan‘s passion for music and the guitar. She moved to Boston with her family at the age of 12, where she began studying electric guitar and eventually went on to study at Berklee College of Music.

In January 2011, Nili joined the progressive metal band Seven The Hardway, which features guitar virtuoso Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X, CAB), legendary drummer Virgil Donati (Planet X, CAB), and renowned vocalist Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth). About a month later, Nili was also asked to join MacAlpine’s touring solo band along with bassist Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen), and famed drummer Marco Minnemann (Paul Gilbert, The Aristocrats). Recently, Nili has been touring with the MacAlpine band and just released her second album, ‘A Matter of Perception,’ which she will be performing live.
