Brian Gore: Guitar Poet

Known as a "poet of the guitar," Brian Gore's emotive, expressive style combines influences from folk, jazz and classical music.

Ron Forbes-Roberts of Acoustic Guitar Magazine says, "Gore's finely crafted poetic 'songs without words' take the listener on a spellbinding, emotional ride.He has great facility as a player, but it's the depth and range of moods his pieces evoke that makes his music such a pleasure."

A musical romantic, who draws inspiration from literature and philosophy, he employs his virtuosity in the service of the heart. He is a self-taught guitarist who's developed "one of the most unique new acoustic guitar styles on the scene today" (News and Review). He has "emerged in the past decade as a leading figure in the new acoustic music movement pioneered by the late Michael Hedges." (Contra Costa Times).
