Have a listen and fly away :
Twelve songs mixing many style of music from Heavy Metal, Funk, Rock, classic guitar…This man can play anything and the most amazing is the feeling he puts into his creation brings you pleasure. It’s always good to hear someone who plays his guitar with soul rather than just fast, of course he can play that too and you can hear some crazy wild solos but this is not what he gives us here.
In some way I found him on the same line as my idol Joe Satriani who speaks with his guitar but with less wah wah (ahah) . I’m speechless with such amazing music. I just wish I could play that good ! if you love the song “Time Flies” first song and title of the album , then you have to buy the beautiful masterpiece for your collection and to listen to everyday. I think he is one of the best today’s guitarist player you may follow 100/100.
