Michael Gulezian (gu-LAY-ze-in) is one of the most highly acclaimed solo acoustic instrumental guitarists of our time. He is a phenomenal technical guitarist with the rare ability to transcend his own virtuosity, creating music that touches and moves people at the deepest level. He's been called the musical link between John Fahey and Michael Hedges. Artists as diverse as Michael Hedges, Willy Porter, and Henry Kaiser have claimed him as a primary musical influence; young lions such as Erik Mongrain and Andy McKee are quick to acknowledge him as an inspiration. In concert, Michael is all warmth and humor ... and though it's visually breathtaking to watch him perform, a concert with Michael is more than a display of cutting-edge virtuosity – it is the passionate communion of master musician engaged with his audience in the mystery of self-revelation, creating music of atmospheric power, ecstatic joy, and haunting beauty. If you enjoy the artistry of musicians such as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges – guitarists who amaze us with what ten fingers and one guitar can do – then you will love Michael Gulezian.

"Gulezian rips … but for all his virtuosic ferocity, Michael never loses sight of the melody, or the drama of his compositions."
- Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"A great guitarist. My kindred spirit."
- Michael Hedges

"one of the most amazing acoustic guitarists on earth. Michael Gulezian puts his entire heart and soul, his entire being, into every song he does live. … incredible passion, and unbelievable technical skill …"
- Dore Stein, Producer/Host, Tangents Music Radio

"Michael Gulezian carries the legacy of pioneering guitarists John Fahey and Leo Kottke into the 21st century. … extraordinary talent. … sublime control and deep absorption of disparate styles, from the brawny soulfulness of the Delta masters, to the ethereal arabesques of Persian court music, to the playful syncopations of American jazz."
- Doug DeLoach, Creative Loafing

"If I could play guitar the way Michael Gulezian does, I would just sit in front of a mirror and watch myself do it."
- Garrison Keillor, a Prairie Home Companion
