A solo acoustic guitar album, featuring 6+12 strings and a slide guitar. Mood is folk-blues augmented with some soundscapes. This is my debut album.
“Yona is composing some of the most genre-bending music for solo steel-string heard since Sandy Bull opened up all the possibilities around the idiom in the 60’s. As a musician, Yona’s story isn’t terribly different than that of many guitarists who have experienced life-altering epiphanies upon hearing Bert Jansch for the first time. Instead of turning his back completely on rock and the cornucopia of sounds which swelled in his head, his musical trajectory placed the acoustic center stage for a wide panorama of musical styles and textures to envelop.
Remember, Yona’s astonishing debut solo album, is a celebration of the Takoma Records and American Primitive Guitar school coarsely filtered through a multi-hued prism of sound, resulting in an intelligent collection of compositions delivered in a fully-formed and strikingly singular voice. ” (Chris Scofield, Strange Attractors Audio House)
