Alexandr Misko is a dazzling new breed of modern fingerstyle guitarist. The 22-year-old Russian already plays concerts all over the world and has often appeared on television in his homeland and other countries. Drawing influences from the musicians who pioneered and expanded this guitar style, Misko manages to break through to new heights while never losing sight of the underlying music. He is a passionate and energetic performer who has released three solo albums. With an organic approach, Misko’s work has been viewed over 200 million times on video platforms and has amassed more than 1 million followers of his music. In 2018, Alexandr was named the “Guitarist of the Year” at the prestigious UK Guitar Show. He has played notable concerts with fingerstyle legends including Jon Gomm, Mike Dawes, Luca Stricagnoli, Thomas Leeb and many others in his global tours.

Guitarist Peter Ciluzzi transports listeners on a journey through virtuosic, evocative compositions that tell a story without words. With a distinctive, timeless sound that is both familiar and unexpected, his music defies easy categorization and reflects a wide range of influences including jazz, rock, classical, and world music. He has been featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and his acclaimed solo instrumental work has accumulated millions of views on YouTube and more than 10 million plays on Spotify. Raised in a small town in coastal Massachusetts, Ciluzzi developed an appreciation of the arts at a young age and took up guitar when he was a child. Mainly a self- taught musician, he has also studied jazz and improvisation as well as classical composition and has written a number of orchestral and electronic works in addition to his solo guitar recordings. A finalist in the Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, he has toured and performed throughout the US and shared the stage with the likes of Antoine Dufour, Calum Graham and Gareth Pearson. The broad nature of his musical interests also extends into guitar design and construction; having studied lutherie with Charles Fox, he started Ciluzzi Guitars in 2006 and has displayed at a number of exhibitions including the Montreal Guitar Show.
