Tom Anello is a fingerstyle guitarist and composer of solo guitar music. His rhythmic, groove-oriented approach to acoustic guitar is inspired by the work of guitarists like Andy McKee, Don Ross, Antoine Dufour and the late Michael Hedges.
He is a graduate from the Berklee college of music in Boston, MA, where he resides today. During his time at Berklee, he studied the fundamentals of jazz and contemporary music and explored genres of guitar ranging from bossa to country; elements of which make their way into Tom’s playing and composition today.
R.D. King is an award-winning composer and performer of instrumental acoustic guitar music.
