This album is a real emotional ride with true back of the neck hair-raising, tingle inducing, highly musical pieces, with a large dose of very professional, film score-esq orchestration and high spec guitar chops to boot. Dave’s epic use of cinematic sound-scapes , lush drums, uilleann pipes, and a wide pallet of orchestral sounds that include lush string arrangements all amalgamated with a really divine sense of melody and great guitar skills, has made this one of my favourite albums of all time, for real. These tracks will take you into an emotional journey and get your juices flowing, the use of changing rhythms great build ups , long flowing and unique melodic lines, all played with a guitar tone to die for, keeps your interest and when Dave lays on the lead guitar lines you just melt away. I love the fact that I can hear his influences really well inside his own sound, Steve Vai meets Iona (Dave Bainbridge) meets Dave Brons, I love it, well worth the investment I guarantee satisfaction on every track.
…Rarely does does guitar fuelled instrumental rock music succeed in appealing to both musicians and non muscians alike. Dave’s music sounds like a cross between Star Wars, Einaudi (composer/pianist) and Van Halen.
Dave combines technique, feel, melody and carefully crafted compositions, making his music something that clearly stands out from the crowd. His love and passion for his instrument clearly shines through his playing.
Dave Brons is an exceptional guitarist, with a particular ability to conjure a superb, spine tingling, lyrical tone from his guitar. His impressive technical facility never overshadows his innate melodic sensibility and musicality. ‘Star’ demonstrates Dave’s vision to integrate cinematic orchestral textures with soaring guitar leads, which combine to touch the heart.
…Dave Brons brings a welcome breath of fresh air to the international instrumental guitar scene: his music exhibits great flair combining epic cinematic compositions with adventurous arrangements and a sense of the dramatic. His guitar playing displays all the requisite modern rock techniques, but his melodic taste, phrasing and sense of joyous fun separates him from the herd. Dave Brons is a genuine new talent: the UK has its latest Guitar hero!
…Dave Brons is a superb guitar player and a really fantastic composer…
Dave Brons is an imaginative player with a great groove. I loved hearing his unique take on my music when we played together and look forward to hearing a lot more music from him
