Ewan Dobson

Instrumental guitarist Ewan Dobson originally from Toronto, Ontario currently resides in New Brunswick. Having started his career by winning the 2009 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition where the prize was to record an album with Candyrat Records.

As of early 2020, he has released a total of 16 albums. One of the highlights of his path was being a featured guest on two of Marty Friedman’s (ex-Megadeth) solo records. 

The video that put him in the Youtube limelight was “Time 2” released through Candyrat records, amassing over 30 million hits to date.

The styles he has represented are video game inspired fingerstyle guitar, acoustic metal, and renditions of the legendary Italian violinist Niccolo Paganini on steel string guitar. Dobson has toured Europe, Canada, USA and China multiple times.

These days he resides next to the woods creating classical duets and writing new acoustic metal repertoire as well as feeding a variety of wild birds by hand.  Recently, Ewan released a 7 hour video chronicling 2 years of feeding 22 different species of wild birds by hand.
