Roy Scoutz

Classical Guitar Augments New Age Instrumentals

World Cafe is a beautiful new age styled, instrumental guitar CD by guitarist/composer Roy Scoutz, who currently resides in the Los Angels area. Inspirational and evocative, the album is cinematically spatial, as classical guitar is framed with modern instrumentation, vox humana, flutes, violas and more. Scoutz plays electric guitar on one number--the moody ballad "Time Can't Stop The Memory", but also performs on piano, synthesizer and mandolin. Truly a versatile performer and a gifted composer, Roy has created a very likable album that will take you on a musical journey through the world according to Scoutz. If you can, be sure to catch one of Scoutz' live performances, if you can't, be sure to obtain a copy of World Cafe for you very own. Scoutz was originally profiled in the June-July, 1998 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Roy released World Cafe, his first CD, in the spring of 1995. Since that time, he has performed in Japan, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, the UK and Portugal. His music has been heard in concert, on radio and in films. A lively performer, Roy moves his audiences with dazzling guitar playing, beautiful ballads and energetic performances. In addition to his own songs, audiences will delight in his unique arrangements of music from Bach to the Beatles. Roy also enjoys performing and singing songs by Eric Clapton and the Doors at his live dates.

Having sold over 3000 copies of World Cafe, Roy is currently recording his follow-up release and an all-solo guitar Christmas CD as well.

Howard Hart

Creative Self-Indulgence And Adventurous Guitar Playing

Taking his cue from such work as Steve Vai's "Flex-Able" and Mike Keneally's "hat", California guitarist Howard Hart has released Dancing Madly Backwards, a 12-selection instrumental CD consisting of high-energy electric tracks and a few other-worldly acoustic numbers. An 'exotic little slice of home studio recording,' to quote Hart, Dancing Madly Backwards satisfies on several levels. Hart uses numerous guitar tones and an advanced sense of dynamics to express emotions and moods on songs such as "Purusha" (which was inspired by Indian music) and "Suspension Of Disbelief", a track in which Hart rips and snorts with bursts of guitar mayhem over carefully sequenced backing material. Forgoing "commercial potential" for simply producing good guitar music, Hart's Dancing Madly Backwards should certainly make it to your CD 'want' list. Hart was originally profiled in the June-July, 1998 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Guitarist Howard Hart first became interested in the guitar at age eight, heavily influenced by his older brothers' Led Zeppelin collection. Later he found inspiration in Jeff Beck's rock/fusion explorations and he also became a huge fan of Frank Zappa's eclectic guitar style and compositional originality. After spending several years in the club circuit, Howard decided to build his own studio and concentrate on writing and producing. He then released three successful tapes and his most recent CD, Dancing Madly Backwards.

Along with his current projects, Hart teaches over fifty students a week and plans to develop an audio/video home instructional course based on his methods.
