Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, Emilio Garcia is one of that country's top guitar players. He studied under the tutelage of an American mentor who taught him, Blues, Jazz, Rock and Funk. But with his Latin heritage Emilio is also deeply involved in Flamenco. He easily transitions from his firey US influenced electric guitar style remenissant of Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani and Jeff Beck to a mellow acoustic Flamenco guitar with the style of Paco de Lucia. Though Ultrablues reflects his electric side masterfully you get a nice taste of his acoustic side as well. Emilio's varied influences are revealed on Ultrablues as you experience his original blend of Blues, Rock, Jazz, Funk and a taste of Flamenco all in one album. Destined to become an internationally recognized powerhouse on the guitar, Emilio has already taken crowds with a storm in limited engagements in the US. This CD was recorded in Chile and is proudly brought to you by US independent label Petroglyph Records who also discovered and brought you Francesca Ancarola and Antonio Restucci. Both of these talented artists include Emilio's lyrical guitar licks in their recordings. If you love instrumental electric blues guitar you'll love Ultrablues!
