Album Notes
This is the debut CD from rock instrumental guitarist Paul Oakley. The music should do one of three things - move you, take you on a journey or tell a story.... sometimes it can do all three!!

This is my debut CD 'Out Of The Ashes'. As an instrumental rock guitar CD there are always comparisons with Satriani, Vai etc but as I am totally self taught I'd like to think I have also picked up my own individual style and although there will always be influences, this is my own blend of music – melody first, with speed and technique when needed. It’s more along the lines of Eric Johnson meets Dave Gilmour than the standard Satch/Vai/Malmsteen clones.... well, there's a bit of Satch/Vai/Malmsteen-isms, but there are too many people trying to sound like someone else - I've only ever tried to be me.... Paul Oakley :)


"The pen might be mightier than the sword but Paul Oakley proves that the guitar can be mightier than any writing instrument known to man at creating a story or painting a picture. Here on this disc he gives you 11 interpretations of things going on in his life and our lives as well. From the melodramatic to the whimsical, Oakley delivers an instrumental tour de force."

"It is not often you will find an artist of such extreme talent. Both in his playing and his songwriting, Oakley is superb. By the time you get to the last song "Final Sunset" you will be drained by the pure magic that he has put on this disc. "

"This is what instrumental music is supposed to be, something that you feel as well as hear. Few can pull it off but Paul Oakley does and what he has put out for you is one magical disc that gets into the soul. This is one that you should not just own but treasure for not many will come along like it."

Wow, so fortunate to have found this CD - I definitely recommend "Out of the Ashes" to people like me who love Progressive guitar playing. And Paul Oakley really lifts the listener out of his / her seat with his exciting riff magic! A strong buy ~ 5 stars WAY up!!
