Thom Bresh

The Breshman was born in Hollywood, California and raised in the middle of guitar royalty. Roy Lanham, Jimmy Bryant, Joe Maphis and Leo Fender. Not to mention the members of this elite guitar court who, would become his close friends and peers. Chet Atkins, Ernie Ball, James Burton, Scotty Moore, Les Paul and Jerry Reed. Now let’s put in part three of this equation; the genes. His father, Merle Travis, was the most influential American guitarist of the 20th Century. With this sort of heritage and upbringing, what do you have? As Chet Atkins put it, “Thom Bresh is a guitarist that deserves to be heard.” www.breshman.com

Taught by his father, Bandi, Andreas plays mainly by ear and was inspired at an early age by Django Reinhardt, and later Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Bireli Lagrene.

Nick Harper

Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father’s Whatever Happened to Jugula? in 1985. For over a decade, he has been dazzling audiences and reviewers alike with his heady mix of virtuosity, boyish charm, showmanship and sheer bravado. www.harperspace.com
