Vikram Shankar

Rise and Fall, Kintsugi

I came across Vikram on Facebook. He was playing some outrageous solos and I was hooked.

I got in touch (as I do) and asked if he would consider doing a solo on a song I was working on; Heretic. He quickly delivered the solo and some additional parts for the song. I was so impressed that I asked him to play on pretty much the whole album.

He can play any style and has the amazing ability to do exactly what is best for any song. He also has the ability to take some of my basic ideas and extended them. The introduction to Leap of Faith and the string arrangements on The Golden Thread are just two examples where Vik’s compositional abilities really shone.

Vik added so much to the album. An immense talent!
