Bruce’s new 12 track offering Six String Anthology is unmistakably Mathiske - with melodic and vibrant sounds centering around original compositions - this time in the key of each string of the guitar.
The idea for the album came about via a chance meeting with the legendary conductor and music educator Richard Gill – who after hearing one of Bruce’s solo guitar pieces was the one to suggest the initial concept. At first the idea didn’t resonate with Bruce, but somehow, some 12 months later, he found himself with a collection of compositions that saw Richard’s suggestion come to fruition. Bruce says of Six String Anthology ”When I play these pieces it is truly me and I have never felt so at one with myself, my guitar and my music.”
With Mathiske refreshed, inspired and eagerly anticipating a return to the live stage, his upcoming tour dates are not to be missed. See below for full information. Six String Anthology is out now through MGM Distribution.
