Finding new grounds for composite rock and roll concepts, and uncovering diverse affects, from jazz to classical music, Cynic Guru’s themes disclose a distinctive sort of alternative rock and roll, mostly because of their hybrid instrumentation options and mixed musical background. Shaped in LA, Master combines the knowledge of a five-piece lineup fronted by Roland Hartwell (violin, vocals), along with Marc Thomas (electric guitar), Mike Costantini (electric guitar), Vince Varquez (bass), and Matt Matson (drums, percussion). Hartwell, previously some the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, made a decision to assemble the music group in 1994. The next years noticed Hartwell collaborating with performers such as for example Bryan Adams, Cher, or Puff Daddy, and frequently showing up alongside the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, specifically on the ensemble’s initial U.S. tour in 1996, and once again in 2000. Despite his single activities, Hartwell were able to consistently play with Master throughout that period, launching three discs on the way, Teaszer, Salty Bloom, as well as the self-titled Cynic Master.
