Troy Stetina contributes to Jonas Tamas' upcoming instrumental guitar album 'Timeless Hour'
The long anticipated second instrumental guitar album of Jonas Tamas, entitled 'Timeless Hour' will be released very soon, so it is time to reveal another great musician who has contributed to the album. As announced before, in the exciting lineup of musicians there are some of the best players on the planet including Andy James, Brett Garsed, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged), Thorsten Koehne (Eden's Curse), Mattias IA Eklundh, singer Mischa Mang (Ivanhoe, ex-Dreamscape), and the new keyboard wizard Sergey Boykov (Shadow Cry).
Now it is a great pleasure to announce yet another amazing player: Troy Stetina. Troy is not only a superb guitarist and an awesome guitar teacher, but he is a great person too, and despite of a busy year with his band Second Soul as well as working closely with PRS Guitars and creating new educational material, he was able to set aside some time and record his parts for the song 'The Unbreakable' in his unique style, with great harmony lines, soaring melodies and exotic chromatic passages. Thanks so much Troy for the inspiration and support!
