“Music was my first love...” (John Miles)
Ever since I heard the first bars of some classic Stones and Mike Oldfield songs I was addicted to music. The legend says that I kept banging my head to “Start Me Up” in the play-pen. I can remember listening to music for hours and hours everyday in my youth and adolescence - especially to the greats of Rock and Metal like Hendrix, ZZ Top, Queen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Iron Maiden and Deep Purple. Also the Blues had its big influence on me with the likes of e. g. Robert Cray, Robin Trower, T-Bone Walker or Eric Clapton.
But it was not until I was 15 that I would pick up a guitar myself and start taking lessons. This was a long time ago. Today I am a musicologist M.A., run my own recording studio and write as well as produce music on a professional level in totally different styles - Metal, Shred Rock, Fusion, New Age, Jazz, atonal music and Black music. Some on you might know me from my main bands MANDATORY, MERCURIA or DISPUTOR.
With “Busy Strings” I release my first solo album that is totally dedicated to electric guitar playing. It features a dynamic mix of different styles ranging from soulful Fusion to high energy Metal and what is generally determined as “Shred”. I am sure as a friend of instrumental guitar music - and in particular a friend of players like Yngwie Malmsteen, Chris Impellitteri, Carlos Santana, Steve Vai, Frank Gambale or Joe Satriani - you will find something on “Busy Strings” that you will like!
