Blowing Away combines searing rock guitar solos with blues inspired rhythms and keyboard originals. The metal guitar work contrasts with the keyboards to create an whole greater than the parts. This was the artist's debut album and harkens harsher roots that his mellower later albums, 'Stand Back' and 'Dream your Dream.' Robert 'Colin' Johnson began his musical career as a teenaged rocker, then turned in his 20s to the blues, and in his 30s to jazz. With 30 years of guitar playing experience combined with street savvy gleaned from stints in both New York City and Los Angeles, Colin now makes BluesGuitarist.Org his cyber-home of jazz, rock and the blues. (Along the way Colin earned three college degrees, B.A., M.A. and M.S.). His musical scores exemplify the essence of blues, rock, and jazz, and his musical worksheets enable aspiring guitarists to progressively master the entire fretboard. Hear his songs free online at GuitarMedia.Org, where you can also jam with his free Jam-Mix rhythm tracks.
