“Dave Brons is a superb guitar player and a really fantastic composer...”
Tom Quayle (Fusion guitar Virtuoso, Journalist and Lick Library Artist)
London Guitar Institute graduate Dave 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. Dave’s music integrates cinematic orchestral textures with soaring guitar leads, which combine to touch the heart. A respected guitar teacher, masterclass clinician, producer and co-host of The Guitar Hour with Tom Quayle, Dave made it to the last 10 in the 2014 Guitar Idol competition. His debut solo album ‘Based on a True Story’, released in 2015 has been receiving fantastic reviews and feedback from fellow guitarists:
"Amazing new progressive rock release from Dave Brons. I’ve had this since it’s release and it’s been in constant rotation. Just killer compositionally and his playing is extraordinary! Check it out!! BUY a copy."
Scott Jones, USA (fusion virtuoso)
Dave's second solo album is being recorded in May 2018, for release later in the year.
