The guitar-based virtuoso, Hybrid Actuary has etched a niche for himself within progressive guitar. He began as a member of the fresh out garage-band, Dove Slimme, where his guitar solos on “The Anthem”, “Leo and Leo” and “Identity” garnered national acclaim.
He is also an accomplished guitarist having been featured on the popular counter culture website AFROPUNK, where he was mentioned as,
“The …virtuoso nodding to metal legends like Kirk Hammett and Joe Satriani with odd bits of Van Halen effects-laden tapping thrown in for good measure. On tracks like ‘Love and Anxiety’, and the triumphant leads of ‘Woolly Mammoth’, Hybrid Actuary showcases his strong fretwork. Some songs like the appropriately titled ‘Random guitar solo’ are sketches in search of a vocalist, but even his rough outlines showcase a fresh talent worth watching. Check this out if you’re a fan of instrumental guitar heroics.”
Hybrid has been stretching his composition by engaging in an exploratory journey into the Electronic Music space and will soon be releasing Electronic Dance Music (EDM) that is an amalgamation of all his experiences and passions all rolled into a newfangled mind-numbing genre.
“The Strum”, is a product of a unison between two inventive souls. It is where two detached genres merge into one, where the Afro-Punk seduces the Afro-Beat and sends the latter on a prancing spree. It is where the Hybrid breeds a new music feel…one that is virtually tactile! This is what Hybrid Actuary brings to JERU The Album…alive Magic!
