This involves slapping, tapping and retuning as he plays, producing a huge, multi-layered sound filled with bass, drums and near-orchestral depth and complexity, all from a single guitar. His songs are often deeply emotive, whether with or without his soft, affecting voice. And his live performances are intimate and powerful, but always punctured by his natural North-of-England wit and self-deprecation. Jon has released four studio albums, his latest being The Faintest Idea on Kscope records. Guitarist magazine (UK) said: “While The Faintest Idea is first and foremost a songwriting masterclass - with Gomm exploring the beauty and pain of life’s travails - it hasn’t stopped him casually ripping up accepted truths of acoustic technique along the way, with a slew of sounds-like-six-hands guitar parts.”
Justin Lavash has been based in Prague for fourteen years, and during that time has established himself as a must-see act on the Czech music scene and abroad. His music crosses borders—hovering between blues, folk and jazz. His phenomenal guitar playing has left many audiences wondering how so much polyphony can be made by just one man on just one instrument. Lavash identifies himself as a fingerstyle guitarist, following in the footsteps of British folk guitar masters like Davey Graham, Bert Jansch and John Martyn—but he is of a younger generation and traces of New Wave and even dance culture can be found in his music. His deep, soulful voice entices the listener to sit back and absorb the beautiful songs this artist has penned. In fact, his skills as a performer are matched only by his talents as a songwriter.
