You never hear people speak of getting their face melted off because of an acoustic guitar. The pleasant tones of a 12 string just don’t bring that picture to mind. If there was a phrase that was the equivalent to face melting for acoustic guitar playing, we would already be using it to describe James Blackshaw. His brand new release The Glass Bead Game, due out on May 26th, will be his first on Young God Records. Blackshaw will be playing a few scattered shows across North America this summer, so keep your eyes open to get a chance to witness this virtuoso’s true genius!
For a taste of James Blackshaw, check out the video posted below, and don’t forget to grab the song “Cross” from his brand new record!
