World acclaimed guitar virtuoso Bruce Mathiske, is back with a new album and tour! Bruce’s new release titled “Six String Anthology” is unmistakably Mathiske with melodic and vibrant sounds and centering around original compositions in the key of each string of the guitar. This process has led him back where he feels most at one – just him, his guitar and playing music from the present and also his compulsory back catalogue. Mathiske has been off the road for some years concentrating on composing on a larger scale for other instruments and orchestras but he is back and can’t wait to play live.

Bruce Mathiske’s new CD contains new guitar compositions that for the first time as Mathiske puts it “When I play these pieces it is truly me and I have never felt so at one with myself, my guitar and my music”.

This album, in a way completes a 32 year chapter since releasing his first Album “Never Alone” on vinyl and cassette in 1998. His search has led him through many styles and genres to ultimately composing for orchestras and other instruments which broadened him to find his own guitar truth. During Bruce’s orchestrating a chance meeting with Legendary Music Educator and conductor, Richard Gill, suggested after hearing one of Bruce’s solo guitar pieces, That Bruce should write a piece for each string of the guitar. And, while at the time the idea didn’t resonate, somehow some twelve months later to Bruce’s surprise he had already done it. Whilst this chapter may be done, there is still the rest of the book to contemplate and speaking of which, his full story is currently being written with a publishing date set for 2019.
