September 19, 2017, 5 months ago
Hong Kong-based fusion guitarist/composer Jason Kui, who combines modern metal, hard rock, funk and ballad influences while integrating rock lead techniques and compelling melodies, will release his diverse debut album, Absence Of Words, for the first time outside of Hong Kong on October 13th via Prosthetic Records.
Following up on the release of his live performance music video for "Polarized", Jason Kui gives fans a closer look at his guitar playing techniques via a new playthrough video for the emotive new track, "Morning Breeze".
Jason Kui says: "Fortunately for me, instrumental music is popular again like in the ‘80s, and it has no language barriers - an Asian rock or pop singer could never find a large audience in the U.S. or Europe. Prosthetic Records is known for great instrumental artists, like Marty Friedman. Getting signed by Prosthetic is quite unbelievable. It has been my ambition for years to be signed by an American label. I hope this will lead a tour and performing in the U.S."
Absence Of Words was mixed and mastered in New York by Matthew Sim at Germano Studios and Alex Psaroudakis at Sterling Sound and features several other guest musicians, including one of the most in-demand bassists in Hong Kong, Chan Siu Kei, as well as American modern metal drum virtuoso, Anup Sastry. Sastry played on all the tracks on the album and his unique, modern sound and incredible techniques are recognizable in every song.
