Delta-Flavored Bluesman Releases CD
Fifteen Years Of Progressive Rock Fusion
Aggressive, Unorthodox Fingerstyle Wins Fans
Usually when I work on my own compositions, I immediately follow my instincts, putting down ideas quickly that come from inspiration - without following any set pattern.
When Mike Varney got a copy of my mostly acoustic solo record and signed me, he suggested doing more metal. I was thrilled because at that point in time it seemed nobody cared for metal solos.
I titled my songs to represent varying degrees of thought; for example, "The Afterlife" is a musical speculation on what it would sound like on your spiritual journey to the next world, if there is indeed one!
Unusual Acoustic/Electric Guitar Duo
Paying Homage To His Guitar Heroes
Original Jazz CD Emphasizes Songs
The fact that downloading is a problem can`t prevent you from doing music. And you are right, a lot of guys are actually releasing their first albums, but that doesn`t mean they are good or different from what`s been done before.
When I do a project like this, I give total creative liberty to each artist because I want their personal flavor as an artist and producer, not mine.
It is all about the music, which can be similar to some people, but for me, it`s really different. Also, the attention of the crowd is different. The trio format demands more from each musician as well.

To be a musician, especially in countries like Italy where music is not treated like it deserves, it`s a hard job. Every day you have to wake up and learn, you have to be prepared, you need to be professional.

Speedy Melodic Shredder Releases New CD
I`m more interested in songs than in players. I love the last Coldplay album, because there`s great melody. There`s new guys like Derek Trucks and Joe Bonamassa, who really play well and say something emotional.
I love live performances. If they come out well, they capture the beauty of improvisation. That is one of the things that I love about music and this band, the moments of improvisation that change from gig to gig are wonderful.
I think that the song itself is the most important thing, because what we remember after the listening of a track is not a shred phrase but the central theme.
I thought it would be easier with a band with vocals, to push and sell it. It wasn`t any easier. I`m still selling more instrumental CDs than Skulgrinder CDs.

Furiously Fast French Guitarist Seeks Producer/Sponsor
My favorite album is "Phoenix Rising". The expectations after the success of "Into The Eye Of The Storm" were high, but everyone was highly motivated and we really put everything into it.
I like to compose instrumental songs, without the use of words, to communicate my emotions and my way of life. I`m not a singer, but I`m a guitarist, so I try "to speak" with my guitar.
