Achilles' Heel is a collection of songs chronicling the author's journey from the insecurities of youth to the liberation of adulthood. As if torn from the pages of a personal diary, each song offers a different shade of honest emotion; from the pensive solidarity of 33 to the explosive guitar melodies of the final track The Great Escape. Musically, the album boasts some of the most eclectic guitar work to date. As a 15-year guitar instructor by profession, the writer has gone out of his way to utilize the instrument to the fullest exploring everything from solo finger-style arrangements and alternate tunings to all out shred. In short, Achilles' Heel represents a balancing act between dreamy acoustic singer/songwriter material and the other world of high energy rock guitar...truly a treat for the average music lover and the guitar enthusiast as well.
