Hired Gun Works | August 10, 2016
Hey! Just a quick few lines to let you guys know that I am also available for hired gun work, cover or original, live and in studio, around the world. I've been doing this kind of jobs for many years now, but at this point it felt right to also advertise it here on my website. If you feel that you might want to have me play/work for your Band/Project/Gig, feel free to drop me a message to check availability and talk details. Other than that, in a few days I'll be leaving for Greeland to play in a great little venue until the end of this year, and I'm really looking forward to meet some good friends there and play some good music with the great Singer/Keyboard Player/Entertainer, Mr. Ross Riano, a soul mate and a brother from a different mother! :) That's it, just a quick update, have a great one! Cheers!
KD Guitars & Basses , Silvia model, official promo video shoot!!! | April 11, 2016
Hi, friends! Here is a video I did a while ago for a really nice custom guitar and basses company, called KD, this one of their top models and this guy is just enjoying it's great features. I'm testing it over a couple of tracks from my debut album, and of course recorded several sound samples. The audio and video are recorded in Perfect Records Studio in Sofia, Bulgaria. The curious thing is that, this video format and presentation were my original idea and it came out so nicely, that ever after, the company began making their videos the exact same way :) The studio is great, the sound engineer is an amazing professional, this experience was a treat! BTW, Bare Knuckles pickups ROCK! KD Guitars&Basses Silvia Demo by Ivan Manoloff
