Jakub Żytecki

Hey!  So this is the main cover art for my album - the thing on the left I mean.  On the right side, you've got all the titles that went to the LP.  So...I guess there are only 12 days left... All artwork credit goes of course to my brother Michał Żytecki.

A new song off my upcoming album "Wishful Lotus Proof'' (March 26th 2015) featuring Piotr Gibner of Proghma - C and Moose The Tramp.

If you're interested in getting a LIMITED EDITION physical copy of the album, go HERE:

The album was recorded and mixed by me at my family house in southern part of Poland. A nice, cozy place in the woods.  Peter's vocals were recorded at Meksyk Studio owned by Krzysztof Pająk.

Alex Lifeson: Introducing the New PRS SE Alex Lifeson Thinline Acoustic

Introducing the New PRS SE Alex Lifeson Thinline Acoustic

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) March 17, 2015 – PRS Guitars is pleased to continue their relationship with Alex Lifeson of Rush with the announcement of an all-new SE thinline acoustic signature model. The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is a road-worthy guitar for players in need of a stage- and studio-ready instrument. Carrying over its unique appointments from the Private Stock Alex Lifeson acoustic, this model features a thinner body depth than PRS’s standard Angelus model and the “Birds in Flight” inlay design.

"I was very pleased when PRS presented me with my SE Angelus acoustic, a beautiful guitar of stunning quality. It was in response to the challenge of building a guitar that shared the integrity and attention to detail that the Alex Lifeson Private Stock Angelus possesses in a package more broadly accessible. The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline is that model. Carefully selected materials, expert craftsmanship and a smart approach to concept resulted in a guitar that is beautiful to look at and rewarding to play." - Alex Lifeson

As with all SE Series guitars, the Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is a quality instrument and a great value. The guitar’s thinner body provides an added level of comfort for players and boasts PRS’s Hybrid X/Classical bracing pattern, which gives this guitar a resonance and warmth not found in some thinline models. The addition of an undersaddle pickup with both volume and tone controls gives this guitar a warm acoustic tone when amplified. To hear the SE Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic in action and for complete specifications, visit www.prsguitars.com/sealexlifeson.

This announcement is timed with Rush’s R40 LIVE 40th Anniversary Tour, which will be visiting 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, OK and finishing August 1 in Los Angeles, CA. For a complete listing of dates, visit www.rush.com/tour/rush40-tour and use #R40 to follow the tour.

“They always try to write off the blues; well we’ve proven tonight that at least 9,000 people like the blues,” said celebrated blues rock master Joe Bonamassa who will release his highly anticipated Joe Bonamassa – Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks on DVD, Blu-ray and CD set on March 24, 2015. The exclusive concert experience tributing blues legends Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf was filmed at Red Rocks Amphitheater over Labor Day weekend in 2014. Carved into the bedrock of Colorado’s majestic Rocky Mountains, the famed amphitheater sets the stage for Bonamassa’s fiery delivery of over 2.5 hours of bluesy guitar-wailing and horn-filled tunes honoring the two Blues greats. Playing to a sold-out crowd of 9,000 fans, this marks the biggest show of Bonamassa’s career, a major milestone for the bluesman. The Blu-ray and DVD contains over 1.5 hours of bonus features including exclusive behind the scenes footage
