What does Steve Vai and Adrian Galysh have in common?

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 14, 2013) - Rock guitarist Adrian Galysh has enlisted three-time Grammy nominee and Emmy Award-winning bassist, Philip Bynoe, to contribute bass tracks to his new album, Tone Poet. Philip Bynoe brings to the record both world-class bass playing and experience from years of touring and recording for artists such as Steve Vai, Kevin Eubanks, Slash, and Ring of Fire. 

Bynoe and Galysh have had a long musical friendship, having played on Galysh’s 2002 release King Friday. According to Adrian, “I’ve known Philip for over 16 years. We met during the first G3 tour in ’96, we both moved to LA at the same time, and we have been playing together for over 12 years. He’s my first call, go-to bassist with a great feel and groove that pushes the music forward. The tracks that he plays on really benefited from his superb bass playing.”

Philip says, “I've been playing and recording with Adrian for a long time and his newest endeavor, adding a vocalist to his songs, is some of his best songwriting yet. I look forward to the new direction this music will take Adrian career-wise and have high hopes for great success in the years to come.”

Described as “a virtuoso of modern electric and acoustic guitar techniques” by 20th Century Guitar magazine, Galysh has a successful trajectory spanning three solo albums and numerous collaborations and performances with industry giants like Uli Jon Roth, Yngwie Malmsteen, Carl Verheyen, Mike Keneally, George Lynch, Warren DeMartini, and many more.

Galysh is preparing the release of his fourth solo album Tone Poet, due summer 2013. The album includes 12 tracks featuring vocal rock songs, instrumentals with world music influences, and sweeping orchestral works. His tasteful guitar work and compositional style will be complemented by Mark Boals’ (Yngwie Malmsteen, Royal Hunt) vocals, and grooves by world-class drummer, Todd Sucherman (STYX).
