UK guitarist Paul Bielatowicz is best known for his virtuoso work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock. He’s played, recorded and toured the world with the likes of Carl Palmer (ELP), Neal Morse (Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big), Les Paul… to name just a few.
Paul’s 2014 debut solo album, Preludes & Etudes, saw him stripping the electric guitar back to basics, presenting it as a classical instrument – no overdubs, effects or studio tricks: just a guitar, an old amp and raw virtuosity.
“For as long as I can remember, ever since I was a small child, I’ve had a dream – to play the guitar with the skill and musicality of a classical virtuoso, while maintaining the purity of the instrument’s natural tone. I’ve done everything I can to make Preludes & Etudes the realization of that dream.”
