  • Boundary-free, horizon-expanding, genre-bending, transcendent, soulful, mind-opening, exquisitely gorgeous instrumental solo acoustic guitar. Michael Gulezian (gu-LAY-ze-in) continues to amaze fellow musicians as well as audiences new to the art of instrumental solo acoustic guitar. If you've never heard of Michael Gulezian, you're in for a very pleasant surprise. He is one of the most highly regarded instrumental acoustic artists of our time. While it is visually breathtaking to watch him perform, a Michael Gulezian concert is more than a display of cutting-edge virtuosity it is the blissful communion of master musician engaged with his audience in the mystery of self-revelation, creating music of atmospheric power, ecstatic joy, and haunting beauty.
    The reviews of Michaels music speak volumes: "unbelievable incredible music from another planet" (Jazziz Magazine); "Gulezians place [is] among the great acoustic guitar innovators of the 20th Century" (Music Web Express); "Michael Gulezian composes, arranges, and performs some of the most complex and emotional music ever written for solo acoustic guitar." (Grammy award-winning producer Richard Adler (Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck)); "for all his virtuosic ferocity, Michael never loses sight of the melody, or the drama of his compositions. And he can still play sweetly. At this stage in his career, Gulezian doesn't need to prove he can play, he just needs more people to hear his expansive and original sound" (Acoustic Guitar Magazine).
    With his two most recent CDs charting nationally at radio, Michael quickly found himself performing live to an audience of millions on NPR radio shows West Coast Live, Echoes, and World Café. For all the airplay, accolades, and critical acclaim, Michael remains most touched and humbled by the words of his late friend and colleague Michael Hedges, who called Gulezian "a great guitarist. My kindred spirit."
    If you enjoy the artistry of musicians such as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges guitarists who amaze us with what ten fingers and one guitar can do then you will love Michael Gulezian. Find out why Garrison Keillor said, If I could play guitar the way Michael Gulezian does, I would just sit in front of a mirror and watch myself do it.
