Labyrinth

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
This talented guitarist regards his instrument as "an orchestra in a box," as he applies symphonic leanings to his intricate compositions. On Labyrinth, his second release, he manages to extend the tonal nuances of the steel string guitar, displaying an acoustic artistry that is catchy and refreshing.

Others celebrate the joyous discovery of newfound expression and possibilities, such as the appropriately named "When the Walls Fell." "Blueskies Mt.
