The aims of any artistic pursuit should be twofold. Firstly, to translate the artist’s inner thoughts and feelings into some kind of personal statement, and secondly to share that journey with an audience. On his new album ‘Dark Things’ Melbourne based blues rock guitarist ... achieves all that and more.

I say great album too! Gave it a spin on my way home from a gig last night mate. Impressive stuff. Lyrically engaging and knitted together with very creative and original audio sounds ... amazing guitar work too. You have certainly wrung the full gamut from your instrument - from beautiful to hideous, from gentle & inviting to violent and threatening - and all points in between. The solo that closes track 4 is a killer! I love hearing original sounds Shannon and this disc has it in bucket loads.Well done sir!
