Shehzad Bhanji announces the release of his second album Profound Beginnings, on March 17, 2017.
“Profound Beginnings” is packed with powerful melodies, soulful guitar playing and beautiful textures, along with a blend of various instruments coming together and completing the whole story. Each track will take listeners on a journey, expressing the feel of that moment. The album has 8 tracks with a unique blend of melodic rock, experiential post rock and instrumental rock. The album will be released with a music video of track Till We Meet Again.
“For me, Profound Beginnings is all about discovering a unique sound, full of love and emotions. At the end of the day it’s about touching, feeling and living the moment I wanted to narrate. When I make music, I just ask myself: Does it work while they’re having a good time? Does it work when they want to relax? Does it work while they are doing creative thinking? Does it work when they need music to commiserate? As people, we use music to help us, to accompany us, to be the soundtrack to our lives.
The album has been produced by Shehzad Bhanji and recorded at Shehzad’s studio in Doha, Qatar and Songbuilder Studios, USA.
About the Artist:
Born in Karachi, Shehzad is an instrumental rock guitarist based in Doha, Qatar. His instrumentals provide a combination of soulful guitar playing and strong melodies, with a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his own style, punctuated throughout with elements of melodic rock, experimental post rock, classic rock and blues.
Shehzad is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include Joe Satriani, David Gilmour, Eric Johnson and Eric Clapton as amongst his biggest influences.
A banker by profession, he always wanted to share his style of music to the world, a music which is melodious, touches the heart, without any words. Shehzad released his first album ‘Never Say Goodbye’ in February 2016 and was produced and recorded at his studio in Doha Qatar.
