Michael Harris is a progressive guitarist & composer with over 15 CDs released worldwide with various groups, including his own solo releases, to his bands Surgeon and Arch Rival. His music is a diversity of styles, ranging from neo shred guitar to amazing prog instrumentals (with jazz and fusion breaks) to acoustic masterpieces. All of Michaels' solo CDs are a "must hear" for any fan of cutting edge guitar music and will impress even the most critical guitar aficionado.
On Michael's 3rd solo CD, "Distorted Views", he displays a myriad of meticulously crafted compositions all with incendiary guitarwork, while never losing sight of his strong melodic themes. On songs like "Transmigration of Souls" and "Mozart's Ghost", Michael shows he can shred with the best of them, while using his guitar as a compositional tool rather than an extension of his ego! A stunning release!
"Based on this release, Harris deserves to be credited as one of the leading guitarists of today. Recommended to all guitar-fans!"
"For his third solo CD, guitar virtuoso Michael Harris delivers 12 exceptional slices of progressive rock majesty"
"This record is what Ritchie Blackmore, Dave Mustaine and Steve Morse might come up with if they were highly charged with the spirit of competition"
