Sammy Boller's exceptional playing and his sophisticated songwriting shine throughout this impressive 11-song debut.
Detroit, Michigan. Rock City. It’s a perennial hotbed for the coolest new offerings in gritty, loud music. And falling in step with this notorious reputation, Detroit is home to guitarist Sammy Boller. Having already attained the lauded status of a six-string Motor City hero, Sammy catapulted onto the national radar in 2012 when he was selected by Joe Satriani as a winner in Guitar Center’s “Master Satriani” competition.
Sammy recorded his debut instrumental record at Rustbelt Studios in Detroit. Mixed my David Bendeth, the record features songs "Kingdom of the Sun", "Cloak Of Light", and "Awakening From The Daydream." When asked to describe his influences and approach, Sammy says, "My guitar playing has always been about plugging into an amp and blowing the walls down. I grew up wanting to be Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads, but over time I've found my own dark and aggressive style. These days, my dream as a musician is to make people feel as connected to the cosmos as I feel when I play the guitar. I'd love nothing more than that."
