Jamie Robertson's 'No Excuse' is an articulate and memorable journey through a variety of finger-picking styles and tunings. Touching on the somber, but always rising to great heights of optimism, No Excuse features solo acoustic guitar compositions that will make you think, and make you smile. Robertson's intricate use of tunings, technique and the sheer joy of playing will make you want to play this record often. Jamie is an established electronics designer who has produced numerous milestone audio products used by professional musicians and recording studios throughout the world. He has now finally turned his attention to the performer's side of the glass. Jamie's two recent releases, 'No Excuse', a CD of solo finger-style guitar, and 'Elevation', a CD of instrumental rock guitar music, showcase his command of the instrument, tasteful songwriting and skilled arrangements. At home finger-picking like the great Chet Atkins and Muddy Waters, Jamie found his early inspiration from versatile rock players like Steve Howe and Jimmy Page, who combined traditional acoustic folk styles with soaring, hard rock electric guitar. Jamie Robertson offers some of the 'most precise' and 'finest guitar playing you are ever going to hear', wrote a reviewer on the iTunes Music Store. Elements of folk, hard rock, finger-style and classical music come together through the artistry of guitar - acoustic and electric. The result is a soundtrack for our lives.
