The Minstrelís Ghost pick up Jartse Tuominen as lead guitarist for the forthcoming release Jack - A Different Tale.
Jartse Tuominen joins Blake Carpenter, Troy James Martin and Mike Troupe on the next Minstrelís Ghost record.
Jartse's phenomenal and expressive guitar playing has been noticed worldwide and he has gained a lot of respect not only among audiences but also among highly appreciated professional musicians in many European countries, Asia and in USA. This modest and heartfelt artist is totally dedicated to music and with his unique touch and ingenious style he is able to give a soul to his guitar in many different ways, varying from progressive jazz to rock fusion. Jartse's unplugged, fantastic acoustic playing brings different interpretations and smoother tones to the music. He is amazingly skilled in finding the core idea of each genre and creating and performing the right atmosphere to each piece of artwork.
So far Jartse has release 4 CD's of his own and has worked on over 100 projects as a musician, composer/arranger or producer. He has also made music for movies, TV-programs and commercials. Two of his soundtracks have reached gold record status (Tako Rautaa & Black Rain).
Jartse has performed and toured with top musicians from all over the world (Joe Satriani, Jackson Browne, Doobie Brothers, Status Quo drummer John Coghland, Augie Meyers, Ian Moore, Randy Garibay, Jimmy Spacek and many more).
ďI am really looking forward to the addition of Jartse to the teamĒ says Blake (singer/songwriter/founder of The Minstrelís Ghost), ďHe is a phenomenal musician and his style will play nice with this next album. The other plus is he spends a lot of time right down the road from The Minstrelís home base which could open up possibilities for a live collaboration in the futureĒ.
Jack - A Different Tale is set to be released in the first half of 2014 on Melodic Revolution Records
