Due to huge demand, Sydney guitar-wizard PLINI is thrilled to announce his Impulse Voices Australian Tour will be making its way to Adelaide and Perth.
With tickets on sale now, this sees PLINI and his band of musical superheroes (Chris Allison, Jake Howsam Lowe and Simon Grove) performing there for the first time since 2018.
Tickets to all other additional shows are flying out the door.
PLINI’s long-awaited sophomore record, Impulse Voices was released in November, 2020.
Impulse Voices was mixed and co-produced by Simon Grove, with artwork designed by long-time collaborator Alex Pryle. The album features Chris Allison on drums, Simon Grove on bass, with guest contributions from Dave Mackay on piano & synthesizer, John Waugh on saxophone, Amy Turk on electro-acoustic harp, and additional production from Devesh Dayal & Aleksandra Djelmash.
PLINI recently released his Impulse Voices Remix EP. The 3-track EP features remixes by friends Dayce, Ariza and Jakub Zytecki- all putting their own personal touch and interpretations to the original songs.
His critically-acclaimed debut album Handmade Cities was voted #5 in Guitar World Magazine’s “20 best guitar albums of the decade,” and hailed by Steve Vai as “one of the finest, forward thinking, melodic, rhythmically and harmonically deep, evolution of rock/metal instrumental guitar records I have ever heard.” Routinely mentioned in “best guitarist” lists, PLINI was named #4 in the “Top 10 best prog guitarists in the world today” by Music Radar in early 2020.
Over the last few years, PLINI has toured the world supporting bands like Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Tesseract and Intervals, as well as playing festivals and headlining his own tours all over North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and India. In 2018, PLINI was the first instrumental act ever to play the legendary Download Festival in the UK.
PLINI was a special guest instructor at “Vai Academy” in 2019, alongside Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Devin Townsend, and despite being entirely self-taught, he has been invited to give masterclasses at some of the most prestigious contemporary music colleges in the world, including Berklee College of Music, Musician’s Institute (USA), BIMM (UK), and JMC Academy (Australia).
PLINI has a signature guitar with Strandberg Guitars, signature guitar amp software with Neural DSP, and endorsement deals with Yahama Music, Dunlop, D’Addario and Fractal Audio.
