Joe Bonamassa: Planet Rock radio gets Joe weekly



The words "kid" and "candy store" could be applied to Joe's radio show, as he faces up to the prospect of being able to choose anything he likes from his absolutely immense and diverse record collection to play for you for an hour.

He's opened our eyes to songs that we've never heard before, told us stories about how particular songs influenced him as he was growing up and basically been more enthusiastic about the stuff he plays than it is probably healthy to be.

Tune in on every SUNDAY from 6PM to hear Joe in action.  http://www.planetrock.com/on-air/joe-bonamassa/

Andy James: The Storm


http://bit.ly/t2EAYr Andy James performs the track The Storm from his self titled album - grab your copy direct from http://bit.ly/t2EAYr
For some time, he was widely regarded as one of the U.K's rising stars in the world of Shred & Metal guitar. With the arrival of 2011, Andy James has undeniably earned himself a place among the best in the world. Not since John Petrucci did we expect to see another world class guitarist, dare to step up and deliver such astounding displays of skill and creativity all at once.
Now, the long-awaited solo album has arrived. Andy James' self-titled album was released on July 18th via Transcend Music. It's inescapable; a tapestry of skilled writing and musicianship, of dynamic creativity and spirit; it's all we hoped for and more. It's Instru-Metal.
Track listing;
Legion
Angel of Darkness
The Storm
What Lies Beneath
Burn It Down
Into The Void
Dust in the Wind
Seperation
Gateways
Bullet In The Head
War March

Andy Gillion: cooking Chopin and melting Game music

Andy Gillion is on Sound Cloud http://soundcloud.com/andy-gillion, another really talented player who can play piano and guitar.

Andy Gillion:
I bought a piano. Watch me fail at attempting to play the easiest Chopin Nocturne there is and then spiral into a shameless plethora of arpeggios to make up for it.

(Frederic Chopin - Nocturne In E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2)

Guthrie Govan: Loud Guitars interview

Guthrie Govan from Loudguitars.com on Vimeo.

Guthrie is traveling with one yes just (1) Suhr Standard Signature model on this tour. He explains this is made possible because of the construction and materials used in this well crafted instrument. A plain Basswood body, plain maple cap, the neck is maple but treated with a special cooking process that basically removes all the impurities and stuff that would allow it to move when changing climates, essentially never has to be adjusted on the road. This model uses the same electronics as his other signature Suhr’s. more

Your chance to see the professor of guitar with some of the hottest new players around is coming closer. Great price and a great cause... helping Jason Becker and raising the profile of the ALS cause. Get your tickets asap.

Marty Friedman, Keshav Dhar: Skyharbor

Starting out as a simple bedroom studio project by Keshav Dhar, Skyharbor has evolved into one of India’s hottest metal projects, with big props coming in from some of the biggest names in metal worldwide, and an astonishing amount of buzz created without even having a touring lineup. A long awaited debut album has been finally announced for a 2011 launch, and promises to be a landmark release for the Indian independent music scene, in no small part thanks to the unprecedented number of international and local guest appearances it will see, including the likes of Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth), Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT, First Signs of Frost, Haji's Kitchen), Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony), Sunneith Revankar (Bhayanak Maut, Amidst The Chaos), Nikhil Rufus Raj (Indigo Children) and many more to be announced soon.

QUOTES:

“I think you do some amazing work. Would love to hear more – it’s awesome.” – Marty Friedman (Megadeth, Cacophony)

“The stuff Keshav plays will blow your mind; not merely because it’s super complex in the patented “djent” stylee, but because of the number of ideas he inserts into the music. The fact that Keshav manages to record – and perform – the music as a solo artist is mindblowing. He must have four hands and three brains, and the thought of him joining a band of likeminded musicians is rather frightening. Remember Hammer’s recent trip to India to check out the local metal scene? Well, with artists like this, it won’t stay local for long.” – Joel McIver

“With its fast-growing metal scene, is it any wonder that India has its foot in the door with this nascent scene? Skyharbor is, incredibly, just one guy.” – Metal Hammer (UK) Magazine (www.metalhammer.co.uk)

“If you’re looking to get into your first Indian band, I’d recommend (Keshav’s) stuff, Skyharbor!” – Jamie Postones (TesseracT, Heights)

“Our friend Keshav Dhar from India is doing some cool stuff with his band Skyharbor” – Bart Hennephof (Textures)

"Skyharbor should destroy all preconceived notions about the Indian scene. The music is just that damn good." - Andrew Lu, Rock Street Journal Magazine

“Keshav’s riffs scare the crap out of me” – Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony)

“Brainchild of Indian guitar ace Keshav Dhar, this musical powerhouse is a heart pounding contribution to the poly-rhythmic low-end sub-genre of metal (known by name as ‘Djent’) rising in popularity over recent years. […] With a CD release set for this coming June, 2011 may hopefully be the year that this musically stunning brand name finally takes form.” – Ashley Jacob, Suite 101 (www.suite101.com)

“Underground act from India! Can't tell you much but they do an awesome job!” – Chronix Radio (www.chronixradio.com)

"Skyharbor’s second single “Catharsis” was released and features Tesseract‘s Daniel Tompkins on vocals and Ex-Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman playing a killer solo. This isn’t your standard djent affair either, despite the old project name; while some of the elements are there, there’s so much more going on. Everything about this song is astounding, and with guests like these on the track, you know for damn sure it’s worth your time. Skyharbor’s debut album will see the light of day this June, and I can’t wait to see what else Keshav has up his sleeve." - Heavy Blog Is Heavy (www.heavyblogisheavy.com)

“Orchestrated swirling genius with a thumping heartbeat” – from the Harmony Central Online Community
