Album Notes
“He is one of the best solo acoustic and electric guitarists in the business, an in-demand sideman, comfortable playing in almost any style, and much admired by established artists of all genres.”

"...unparalleled guitar-driven music...reaches further than probably anything
you've heard from six strings prior to now."

“...music that is sublimely sensitive, while still maintaining an undercurrent of
mystery with an improvisational edge...A truly expressive guitarist...”
BILL MILKOWSKI (writer Downbeat & Jazziz)

“...guitarist Rolf Sturm...pushed around the harmony and made everything gel. In
doing so, he works toward the greater good and creates his voice.”

“Where no guitar has gone before... Rolf Sturm”

“"...a distinct and compelling acoustic voice... Shawangunk is the pure expression of his nylon-strung artistry... Rolf has a sturdy melodic sense, imbued with a sense of inevitability...Rolf is also a master of scrumptious chord motion."
TONY TRISCHKA (Banjo Legend)
