Neat you have crossed circles Amy. I agree and did not comment in detail but I agree he's a bit safe in tonality almost Mannheim Steamroller like and I'd like to hear more buzz more feedback more range but what he's doing is still very cool to me.
I shared a gig with him at Great American Music Hall in SF. He brought in a nice crowd — seems to have quite a following here. A lovely warm person, a great set backed up by the MagikMagik Orchestra... though I found myself wishing he’d do more out-there stuff.
I don't know if anyone knows of this fellow, perhaps he's wide known in Europe but this was passed on to me and have found pretty neat what he's doing.
I particularly like the moments of feedback and occasional roomsounds though I was disappointed he never went for the eBow :)
