Join legendary musician, producer, and film composer Neil Giraldo as we introduce Three Chord Bourbon to the Southwest. With over four decades of experience, Neil has a back catalog of more than 100 songs and more than 45 million records sold, he has worked with some of the greatest artists in the music industry, including Rick Derringer, Pat Benatar, John Waite, Kenny Loggins, Steve Forbert, The Del-Lords, and Beth Hart. His work has produced many Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning hits, and he holds the distinction of being the first guitar player appearing on MTV. Today, he continues to expand his creative portfolio: in addition to writing new songs for stage and screen, he is writing screenplays for feature films, touring, and reaching out into the community to work with musicians young and old.

Today, Giraldo’s career is as dynamic and diverse as ever. He is in the process of completing two books – one an autobiographical novel, one a motivational book on the psychology of creating. He is further expanding his Bel Chiasso entertainment company, which is developing a variety of television and film projects. Later in the year, Neil will start composing music for the new film The Same Sky directed by Jeff Kramer. He is working on a new band project with Scott Kempner from the Del-Lords/Dictators, and this year (2019) he will tour the country celebrating a 40-year musical history together with partner Pat Benatar. A collection of original songs written for a holiday/Christmas record featuring guest artists is also in the works.

And now Giraldo brings his creative energy and musical expertise to another level. As a founder of Steel Bending Spirits, his company recently introduced Three Chord Bourbon, Amplify Rye, and Twelve-Bar Reserve, and he is putting together an all-star Steel-Bending Spirits band. His newest enterprise brings together his passion for music and love of sharing whiskey and conversation with friends.
