ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Refuge, George Robinson's debut solo guitar release, is a collection of pieces that wrestle with the tensions of modern life and explore the need for a personal sanctuary to restore the spirit. The 9 tracks deliver 40 minutes of unique, stimulating music.

George is a Portland, Oregon based contemporary solo guitarist who performs original music on a hybrid, nylon string instrument. His music employs modern sound modeling technologies that blend the characteristics of acoustic and electric instruments to produce a unique, ethereal sound.

George worked with over 60 musical ensembles over a period of 15 years, then discovered his muse and began composing contemporary solo guitar compositions, drawing on influences from new age, smooth jazz, rock and classical music.

Also check out George Robinson's other solo guitar releases, The Awakening, Into the Light, and Out of the Sky (the current release), also available on CD Baby.

I absolutely love a debut album...a new artist, new ideas, and a fresh start.
I absolutely love a debut album...a new artist, new ideas, and a fresh start. Oregon's George Robinson, with his hybrid nylon string guitar, makes an excellent first-run with Refuge, a 40 minute joyride through the world of solo guitar. It's usually pretty easy to tell if a guitarist "has it" from the first few chords...let me be one of the first to say that George definitely has it, and knows what he's doing with it.
