Improvisational Instrumental Guitar

One is Pennsylvania axeman Colin Hoover's instrumental CD-R recording, nine tracks of rock and fusion which display a hefty amount of skillful improvisational guitar moments. Hoover's aim was to reach the general public, but regardless of intentions this is a shred guitarist fan's album. Hoover has immense talent on the instrument, and can rip out lengthy, high-speed, spontaneous solos with ease (examples: "Expresso Perpetua", "A Monk's Madness"). Tracks such as "The Sinister Pharoah" take a slower, more cinematic approach, but even it features a lightning quick, wah-wah freakout on the outro. Hey man, when you have the ability, you might as well use it! "Eye Of The Storm" is a nice track that displays Hoover's progressive influences and features a sensitive improv on the outro solo. Hoover performed, recorded and mixed the entire project, and the bottom line? One is definitely for six-string fanatics, sure to keep them in 'air guitar' heaven. Colin Hoover was originally profiled in the August-September, 2000 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Colin was born and raised in Philadelphia, and began playing the guitar at age 12 after hearing bands such as KISS, Aerosmith and Van Halen. Progressive bands (Yes, Rush, Genesis) caused him to focus his direction and practice incessantly. Mostly self-taught, Colin has studied jazz with guitar virtuoso Jimmy Bruno and rock with Greg Howe. He has performed in various bands and really feels at home on stage. Colin currently performs with Funkin'DoMe, a modern heavy alternative band with progressive tendencies.

Hoover's future plans include a progressive metal album, an ambient soundscape album and a commercial vocal album, as well as more instrumental works highlighting the guitar. He is currently shopping his work to record labels and also working towards a position as a studio musician.

Electrifying Live Performer Offers Instrumental Work

Donni Fury's instrumental CD-R, Retro Active is rife with swirling guitar textures, production surprises, and bombastic fretwork complete with lightning quick runs and biting solos. His Hendrix meets Foster/Paich/Lynn instrumental cover of the classic "Groovin'" puts all of the above into play. Using only his guitars and guitar synthesizers (and a number of effects boxes - phasers, flangers and the like), Fury has developed a unique style which creates a broad spectrum of orchestral sounds. If you like the sound of furious guitar, you'll probably be hooked into the sounds and moods Fury can put between the speakers. Donni Fury was originally profiled in the August-September, 2000 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Born and raised in New York City, Donni's electrifying live performances have delighted audiences throughout the northeast. In addition, he composes and produces music of all styles ranging from pop, ballads, dance, progressive and heavy metal to radio and T.V. commercials and film underscores.

Fury dedicated Retro Active to the spirit and memory of Jimi Hendrix, who inspired him beyond what words could ever express.
