This boy right here is scary on the guitar!” - Johnny Hiland

BOLD TRAVELER - Coming out soon!

Coming out in April 5th, Bold Traveler is a musical work with six original instrumental compositions that mix elements of Fusion and Country. With each track creating a different musical canvas for improvisation, and no pre written solos, this release brings spontaneity and a good dose of unpredictable turns along the way. Canteri plays all the Guitars while Mike Swope on Drums and Andy Byrd on Bass provide a solid foundation. Mike is a seasoned Nashville drummer and band leader that has worked with several major artists and Andy adds some special textures playing Chromatic Harmonica and Arco Bass on some of the tunes. STAY TUNED!
