Finnish guitarist Ben Granfelt released his latest, critically acclaimed album, True Colours, on A1 Records in September 2020, and as we all know there was no chance to perform live or promote gigs/albums because of Corona.
2021 will see a lot of artists back on the road and Ben, Masa Maijanen (bass) and Jari Salminen (drums) are ready, and happy as cows in the spring, to get back out as well… “What a shit year 2020 was! Let’s make the most of 2021 and support the clubs who always supported us by doing what we do best…play our asses off! I can’t wait to present the new stuff to my fans and friends.”
Ben’s history in the music business goes way back to Gringos Locos in the -80s, Guitar Slingers and Leningrad Cowboys in the -90s, followed by Wishbone Ash and Los Bastardos Finlandeses in the -00s and beyond.
True Colours is Ben’s 18th solo release. He is known as a melodic master of the guitar, with both great vocal and instrumental songs, as well as being a true entertainer on stage. This year I’m gonna dig into the older, instrumental albums, as well as play stuff from the latest albums. It should be a musical feast for any one who likes good guitar music.”
