One Step Closer – electric guitar solo

Here is electric guitar solo section of “One Step Closer” from my album “Eight”.

My albums are available on all online music platforms in digital format. Find the physical format at Amazon.com, CD Baby, my Facebook page, and here at my official website.

Obey – first solo part

This is the first solo part of my song “Obey”, from album “Eight”. I explored variations of Lydian and Phrygian scales along the solo, and of course used passing and ornament notes as usual..

Album “Eight” is available on all online music platforms in digital and physical formats.

“Killing Me Is Killing You” digital painting

“Killing Me Is Killing You” is the last piece of the painting collection I created after album “Seven”. Meaning each track of the 2016 album now has a dedicated painting. For years I avoided to give a title to my works, but now as I do, I still leave the understanding of the concept to the audience. The paintings that are created after the tracks will bring a visual translation of the concept to the audience. Keep in mind its not about resolving a riddle, or discovering what a song/artwork means, but to see beyond forms and colors, and simply making you think while you enjoy the beauty of a piece.
