New album ‘a way you’ll never be’ coming soon!

My new album, ‘a way you’ll never be‘ is scheduled for release on October 7, 2016 on InsideOut Music!


’a way you’ll never be’ was fairly big step for me in that I have worked extremely hard at bringing the two sides of my writing together: the “acoustic singer songwriter” and the “electric heavy guitar” elements. This album is most certainly the set of songs that has successfully combined my introspective lyrics with the aggressive type of guitar playing and writing that I love.

The album will feature Mark Prator on drums & percussion, and Sean Malone (Cynic) on Bass. The themes of the lyrics, the melodies, and the playing make these my favourite, most cohesive and adventurous set of tracks to date. Stylistically the songs revisit some of the guitar music of the 70’s that grabbed me and made me want to be a guitarist. Sonically I combined those 70’s big guitar tones with the modern sounds available to us as guitarists today.

Details on the pre-sale, formats, and availability will be released soon!

In support of the album, I will head out as support to Marillion and Steven Wilson in the US & Canada tours. You can find dates and details on my Tour Dates page.
