20th Anniversary of "Venusian Sunrise"

I am re-recording my debut instrumental guitar album, Venusian Sunrise, for its 20th Anniversary in 2018.

In 1998, I released my first record, entitled “Venusian Sunrise”. It was an instrumental CD of progressive rock songs and acoustic performances reflecting my influences (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Uli Jon Roth, Van Halen and Randy Rhoads). This album was the genesis of what was to become my trademark style: combining melodic hard rock guitar playing with orchestral, jazz, and fusion elements.

Venusian Sunrise was also one of my best selling CDs, coming out at the height of compact disk sales and the growth of independent record labels. Released independently, it garnered coverage in guitar magazines and budding online review websites, and established me as an up-and-coming player in guitar circles….. and has long been completely sold out and out of print!

I continue to perform songs from this album live to great reception, and have always wanted to re-record the album to give it the production quality the songs deserve. Venusian Sunrise was recorded in my parents basement on a single Alesis 8-track ADAT recorder. While the performances are pretty good for the time, and the mix is too (the best I could do with limited resources at the age of 22), it lacks the richer guitar tones, huge advances in recording technology, and realistic orchestral sounds of today, but maybe most importantly it lacks: Real Drums.

The final product will include the new recording as well as the original 1998 recording, remastered and hopefully with some bonus songs!

With your pledges I will be able to share the recording process, production, trials and tribulations of this project via exclusive studio videos, photos, demos, drum, bass, and guitar tracking…and more.
