California-based Gruv Gear, designer and manufacturer of innovative utility gear and accessories for musicians, proudly welcomes guitar player Al Joseph to its growing list of world-class artist endorsers.
After earning a prestigious spot on Jam Track Central's artist roster in 2013, Al Joseph has proven to be one of the world's most exciting new virtuosos to hit the scene to date. Now a proud alumni of Berklee College Of Music, Al presses on to an already promising career as both a guitar player and songwriter. Gruv Gear is proud to welcome Al to its worldwide roster of prominent artist endorsers.
One can expect to hear quite a bit of Joe Satriani's lyrical texture, John Petrucci's technical power, Vinnie Moore's stinging licks, and Andy Timmons' sense of feel and dynamic presence in Al's playing. As far as songwriting goes, Al has a never-ending list of band influences in his arsenal, from Creed, Rag Against The Machine, P.O.D, to Pillar, Pantera, Sevendust, and many more.
"Out In The Open" is Al's debut solo instrumental record, which was released through JTC Records in October 2013. It's a story of emotion, new beginnings, unknowns, and all the new challenges Al has faced throughout his life. Don't forget about an hour of world-class shredding as well. Those who enjoy the workings of guitar legends Joe Satriani and Andy Timmons should look no further. This record has it all wrapped up in a nice package with a kick of fusion as well. Out In the Open is a wild ride for sure!
Check out Al's music on Jamtrackcentral.com, iTunes, Spotify, and ReverbNation. Here's what JTC Records has to say about it:
"There is no question of Al's ability on the guitar. Still a young player, he brings some great classic ideas and makes them extremely accessible, whilst surrounding them with well produced tracks. Expect to see a lot more from Al over the coming years... he has an exciting career ahead of him." ~ Jonny Carpenter, Jam Track Central Records
Al proudly endorses Gruv Gear FretWraps, and shares: "Goodbye hair ties, socks, cloths, pipe-cleaners, and rubber bands... Hello to my new FretWrap! I no longer have to worry about intonation issues or uneven dampening. I just pop it on, forget about it, and hit record. They also look pretty awesome. Grab one of these asap!"
