Dominic Gaudious has now reissued his 1996 CD release "Where I Stand" with newly-recorded tracks featuring a more impressive quality than on this original debut.
Dynamic, intense and passionate are just some of the words used to describe the innovative work of instrumental guitarist and composer Dominic Gaudious.
After successfully releasing two albums and touring with an eclectic rock band in the 1980's, Dominic found his passion in the contemplative world of classical/world beat music. Working mainly with six and twelve-string acoustic guitars and incorporating exotic instruments such as the Australian digeridoo, Dominic expanded on the theme and created a uniquely intricate playing style which blends the sounds of classical, jazz, Flamenco, folk, rock and world beat.
Often compared to Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke, Dominic's appealing sound has become widely sought after for festivals, benefits and college concerts. He has performed for the Race Unity Festival in Atlanta and for national and international organizations such as PETA, Greenpeace and Citizens for a Better Environment. Dominic has also performed at the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, appeared with the well-respected jazz ensemble Acoustic Alchemy and world-renown guitarists such as Pierre Bensusan and Adrian Legg as well as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. He also recently performed for the G3 (Satriani, Vai, Petrucci) after-show party at Atlanta's Tabernacle.
