This is a great inspired instrumental guitar powerhouse....After winning the local rock station KLBJ's 'Guitar Wars Competion' in 1994, in Austin,TX; Micheal teamed up with drummer Jim McCullough to record and produce 'Perpetuity.' More emotional than technical, this is a recording that is easy to meditate with....The songs flow to form an overall story-line of life experiences in the new millennium. Recorded from late 1999 through 2004 at Jim's home studio; all the tracks are live with no editing. This is not your usual Texas music.... 20th Century Guitar (May 2006) says 'Skinner has recorded an impressive powerhouse of soaring instrumental workouts that simply sizzles.' Robert Silverstein also goes on to say that 'Skinner's approach to guitar composition indicates that he has a fine guitar touch as well as a flair for originality.' There is a maturity in these tunes and although you may notice similarities in other guitar music, Skinner has a voice of his own. This CD has been described as music for the soul. Eat up! Hey Cyber-friends, Just a note to thank all of you for checking out my music. It's been more than a year since the release of Perpetuity and I have met some great people as a result. Thanks again for listening. Micheal.
