NO SLEEP TIL SCHWERIN!

After the Anne Clark "Smallest Acts Of Kindness" European tour (45 x concerts in 9 x countries), Jeff Aug will be releasing his 4th solo album on his birthday: Friday, 13.March 2009.

Two music videos of tracks from the new solo album are already finished and online (broadcast quality versions available):

"One Twenty"

To promote the new album, Jeff Aug knew he had to do a tour, but didn´t want to do the old stand-by-run-of-the-mill number, so he will be doing a full on European tour in one day! That´s 6 x concerts in 6 x different countries in 24 hours. Guinness Book of World Records officially recognizes these 6 x concerts as an attempt to set the world record for the category of 'Most concerts performed in different countries in 24 hours´:

After laying down the tracks for the long-awaited smash hit Wave / EBM Anne Clark album The Smallest Acts Of Kindness, Anne´s guitarist Jeff Aug (who wrote half of the music for the album) had plenty of material that just couldn´t fit on the album. So, Jeff reworked these outtakes and arranged the material as instrumentals for solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar. The title of the new solo album (Jeff´s 4th) is Living Room Sessions, having been recorded in the living room of pianist and composer Murat Parlak (Yehudi Menuhin, Branford Marsalis, Anne Clark). Release date will be Friday, 13.March 2009.

The Washington, D.C. born guitarist Jeff Aug magically intertwines indian and oriental lines with funk grooves to the delight of their fans. Such has he performed (over 1000 concerts) as support for Rush, Queensryche, Albert Lee, Soft Machine, Allan Holdsworth, Freaky Fukin Weirdoz, and many others.

PRESS:

The lights go down and we’re ready for some hardcore Holdsworth action. And then Jeff Aug steps out, with an acoustic six-string, and hammers seven shades of shale out of it.

Support acts usually have only one purpose and that is to suck. They’re the ugly friend you go to the bar with when you’re out to score. They’re the bad stats you give the boss before you present him with the report on how you are going to save the company. They have a place in life, a rung on the ladder, and they’d better not blow the main act out of the water.

It is a brave lead guitarist who has Jeff Aug open for him. Playing what can only be described as high-speed country funk, he shreds his way up and down the strings with breathtaking speed. He also provides his own percussion, striking the body of the instrument hard enough to sound like a bass drum. This is extreme acoustic guitar, and extremely good, rendering the audience unusually silent.
