PRESS RELEASE: November 2006
UNICORN DIGITAL is proud to announce that Guitarist Daryl Stuermer has signed a deal with the label to release a new solo collection. This recording represents Daryl’s personal favorites selected from back catalog of Urban Island releases.

Daryl Stuermer’s new CD Rewired - the Electric Collection signals a renaissance and vital shift in musical direction for the Genesis/Phil Collins guitarist. Stuermer, formerly with fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty (1975-1978) and Genesis (1978-1992) as well as an essential part of Phil Collins' band since 1982, has chosen a collection representing aggressive, edgy, guitar centric compositions.

Rewired is an opportunity for electric guitar to take the spotlight. Newly edited and completely re-mastered, Rewired is a must-have for anyone interested in the artist’s remarkable career. File under: guitar heavy rock/jazz.



Stuermer, Daryl: Rewired-The Electric Collection

Many will surely know the name Daryl Stuermer, guitarist with fusion violinist Jean Luc Ponty (1975-1978), Genesis (1978-1992), and a member of Phil Collins' band since 1982. In addition, Stuermer has recorded an impressive body of solo work, starting with Steppin' Out in 1990 on the GRP label. That album was a stunning collection of jazz-fusion instrumentals, showing that Stuermer was more than just a sideman, and could deliver the goods as a distinct solo artist with impeccable guitar chops. Throughout the 90's and up until recently the guitarist recorded a bunch of albums for Urban Island Music, and now finds himself on Quebec's Unicorn Digital, with his first release for the label titled Rewired-The Electric Collection. The CD is a collection of some of the best songs that he has recorded over the last 16 years, newly edited and remastered, and features hard hitting electric guitar pieces that show off his wonderful tone and tasty chops in rock, fusion, jazz, and progressive rock formats.

If Daryl is going to use this batch of songs for the direction he is going to stay focused on for the near future, then we are all in for a treat. These ten tracks are simply breathtaking, whether the guitarist lays down lyrical & melodic beauties like "Wherever You Are", Celtic flavored jigs such as "Highland Hip Hop" & " American Fields", or symphonic fusion barn burners like "Determined", he's on the mark over and over again. His tone is as sweet as Ronnie Montrose, and his technical expertise as commanding as Eric Johnson or Joe Satriani. Listen to him rip on the rockin' fusion cuts "Yin Yang Boogie" and the Elektric Band-ish "Road Warrior", two mind-blowing and tasty treats that show the guitarist shredding with the best of them, the latter also featuring some dazzling keyboard work from Kosha. For catchy instrumental rock, it doesn't get better than "Deadline", an addicting number with memorable guitar and keyboard harmonies, and rock solid rhythms. Other musicians on the album include such familar names as bassist Leland Sklar and percussionist Luis Conte.

If you've never heard any of Daryl Stuermer's solo material, this is a great place to start. Once you have, you'll scratch your head and wonder why the hell Mike Rutherford played most of the lead guitar work for Genesis all those years after Steve Hackett left. Overall, this is wonderful stuff, and here's hoping Stuermer has some new material for us relatively soon.

DARYL STUERMER ‘REWIRED - THE ELECTRIC COLLECTION’ Unicorn Records (2006) www.unicornrecords.com

Guitarist Daryl Stuermer may not be a well known to many but he is in the reformed Genesis touring band and has worked with the band and on their solo projects previously, plus of course carved his own solo niche. This collection shows of his guitar style, never too overstated and with a good ear for melody. The music ranges from jazz fusion through to some very prog rock moments and each song ha s tight melody with no OTT noodling that puts many off such instrumental albums. Picks are ‘Determined’ with its soaring guitar and keys, ‘Morning Train’ and ‘Road Warrior’.
Nicely timed for the Genesis reunion next year when Stuermer’s profile will be on the rise once more.

RECENSORE Paolo "Paul the rock" Brilli

RECENSITO IL 02/12/2006

STUERMER, DARYL Daryl Stuermer è stato il chitarrista dei Genesis, precisamente dal 1978 al 1992, e adesso fa parte della band di Phil Collins, in parallelo a questo si è dedicato a lavori autonomi a partire dal 1988: tutti strumentali e tutti dedicati principalmente a mettere in risalto il suo strumento.

Rewired, l'album che qui stiamo trattando, è una raccolta dei brani più significativi della sua carriera, rivisitati in chiave più "elettrica" per la nuova pubblicazione. Nelle 10 tracce possiamo quindi scoprire Stuermer passo dopo passo dagli inizi di Stepping Out (album del 1988) alla sua penultima pubblicazione The Nylon String Sampler (album del 2005).
La musica che ci propone Stuermer spazia dal rock alla fusion senza disdegnare riferimenti progressivi (anche se labili) ritrovabili nel passato dei Genesis. La tecnica di Stuermer risalta in ogni brano ed è godibile a pieno senza mai risultare troppo ambiziosa e/o autocompiacente, cosa che spesso si rischia di riscontrare in album strumentali di questo tipo. Il risultato complessivo è elegante e si pone come perfetto accompagnamento per il relax dell'ascoltatore dimostrando, se mai ce ne fosse bisogno, che ci troviamo ad ascoltare un chitarrista di spessore.
Fra tutti i brani mi sento di segnalare principalmente Wherever You Are, probabilmente la traccia più bella, Highland Hip Hop e The Least You Can Do: tre brani che da soli basterebbero a mettere in risalto questo lavoro.

Rewired è l'album perfetto per conoscere la parte solista di questo chitarrista e quindi risulta indicato a tutti coloro che non hanno mai avuto occasione di ascoltare i suoi lavori, mentre per chi già possiede gli album precedenti questa raccolta potrebbe essere vista come un doppione, seppur con un piglio differente, e quindi consiglio un ascolto preventivo.

Un album strumentale elegante, indicato per coloro che vogliono avvicinarsi alla musica di Stuermer al di fuori dai Genesis e per color che apprezzano brani dove la chitarra fa da padrone ma che non siano solo esercizi di stile.

Paul Crewe

Superb guitarist, wonderfull pieces. Highly reccomended.
Thanks Daryl!!


Daryl covers a lot of ground on this CD !!! He takes you on a textured journey of sonic adventure. Daryl really gets to stretch out and let his musical legs hit the ground full stride. He is VERY melodic and imaginative throughout !!! Check it out !!!

A must have
This is my favorite CD by Mr. Stuermer. He has really outdone himself on this one. A real master of the genre and someone who knows his instrument. It's a must have for anyone who loves good guitar work with an edge.

Gene Steinman - Daryl's Biggest Fan

Daryl Stuermer's "Rewired" keeps you charged while you listen.
Electricity abounds when you listen to "Rewired" the latest cd from the masterful guitarist, Daryl Stuermer. You are instantly charged by the reworkings of these songs that span several of his CD's. Some of the songs have definite changes, while others have that subtle difference that you know something is different about it. Get this one it's "high voltage" listening.

Daryl Stuermer - Rewired - The Electric Collection
Does a band Sweetbottom ring a bell? Mr. Stuermer played just in that group in the seventies. He is also associated with the likes of Genesis, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, a famous violin player Jean-Luc Ponty etc. An American multiinstrumentalist, who is master of guitar, bass guitar and keys, has had no one opportunity to collaborate with many equally gifted artists like Brad Cole and Kostia (keyboard players), Leland Sklar and Eric Hervey (bassists), Mark Torrol, John Calarco and Luis Conte (drummers). Stuermer's first solo album titled "Steppin' Out" was released in 1988. Then he recorded next five CDs, and "Rewired" is the seventh one in his solo discography.

Have you ever asked yourself whether improvisations can be catchy? Have you ever imagined yourself how could instrumental version of Marillion combined with Joe Satriani's guitar manner sound? Let's imagine yourself gentle, subtle and rich guitar sound and direct your glance at Mr. Stuermer, haha. His music is plenty of melodious solos, and tunes are full of healing power. The last track - "The Least You Can Do" was co-written by Daryl and Phil Collins. Yeah, that Collins of Genesis! It's recommendation itself! Stuermer's musical ideas put our optimism rate up to the top of magnificence! Even though, there are some fusion and folk music's elements, I'd classify Daryl's style as instrumental melodic progrock. That's way, the fans of Patrik Carlsson, Dave Bainbridge and Edward Box should enjoy "Rewired". If you have been looking for best music before falling asleep, you needn't make an issue out of it, because that has just been solved, haha. Here it is!

Gran guitarrista!
Sigo a Stuermer desde la J.L.Ponty era,es un gran guitarrista muy sensible , con un sonido lead muy claro y limpio unico en su estilo.Sus riffs de guitarra y fraseos son muy melodicos , algo similar a lo que hace tambien Phil Keaggy.Este disco es una buena muestra de su estilo ,escuchen la versiòn de "the least you can do",la melodia muy simple ,con un vibrato increible donde no se extraña para nada a Phil Collins. Un gran disco de un gran guitarrista. God blessyou , Aram.


Loved it
Loved the music I bought two at the same time, one for the car and one for home. Liked that I received two signed copies which made it even better.

Ann Gragg

This CD is PURE Stuermer, he really explores the more rock fusion side of him in this one. Great tunes for great listening!


As a HUGE fan of guitars-greatest, namely Steve Morse, I'm very impressed with this CD.
Stuermers' style is state-of-the-art!

It is the proper way how to launch your knowledge and skills !
Hello my (secret) friend,
despite I am medical doctor living in Prague (and playing rock and roll, too) - I do love your approach shown hear ! I was touched your (instrumental) licks and composition knowledge as well as your (out of any discussion) substantial influence to Phill's projects for the first time in 1993 (during my postgraduate stage 1993-1994 in McGill, Montreal). However, I am still touched now and I have been admiring your activities!
If you will browse www.jan-sulc.cz as well as www.vitkovokvarteto.cz - we might be in touch, my secret friend.
Tak care
