String Dance by Adam Merry

String Dance

Monterey native Adam Merry's solo release 'String Dance' is available on iTunes. Adam is an highly creative composer and guitarist who combines rich and complex harmonies with a variety of percussive accents to achieve very imaginative soundscapes.  It's easy to get lost in the ebb and flow of his music--this album of all original pieces sets a contemplative mood that's rich and soothing.


Shut Up & Play by Steve Reynolds

Shut Up & Play album cover

Guitarist Steve Reynolds presents "Shut Up & Play" -- 13 tunes of solo acoustic guitar done in the finger-picking style.  This is an intricate and  highly technical style of playing which very few guitarists can pull off, and will often leave the impression that you're hearing two or more musicians.  Steve's mastery of the instrument combines with the rich sound of the Trading4s Studio to produce a lush album you'll want to listen to again and again.  Listen to a sample above, then contact me to order your copy.
