Michael Imes I love Aram's work so deeply. The equally great album "Music Inspired by the color of Pomegranates" is a must hear too. His palette and touch on the guitar is myriad from skronk to rock and ambient and back again! Favorite track: Orbisonian.

John Cratchley A record of urgent immediacy full of spirit and heroic application. I particularly like the guitar tone which has a confident,upfront quality.
All in all this is a barnstorming record full of ideas and a 'devil may care' attitude that excites the senses.

Beanie Ben ✨ This dude played guitar with Lou Reed, and I love the vibe of this album. Sort of Hendrixy in places, but with Balkan folk and jazz-noise-rock influences too. Favorite track: Orbisonian.
