About Galen Weston
Guitarist and composer, Galen Weston, unleashes a lifetime of music on his ambitious BluJazz debut album, Plugged In. After laying down his guitar for more than a decade, Weston breathes life into 10 original tracks and two covers with fine craftsmanship and intense focus, while showcasing an unwavering dedication to tonal quality and nuance. Fueled by jazz and rock guitarists such as Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, Wes Montgomery, Mark Knopfler, Eric Johnson and Steve Vai, the record showcases his formidable guitar talents in the company of some of finest cross-genre musicians in Canada. It was produced in Weston's own Rose Room Recording Studio by Jim Zolis.

"Plugged In represents a two-year journey of writing and recording across a vast musical territory, says Weston. "It's a sonic and personal exploration with my Yellow Stratocaster, ES-335 and other instruments. The album is the culmination of many hours spent taming the howling of vintage Big Muffs, cleaning tape heads on old echo machines, and tweaking the tone knobs on classic Marshall and Fender amps in the simple yet enduring search of great tones."

What the Critics are saying:

~ Travis Rogers, JazzTimes
"A refined player from Toronto, Galen Weston straddles a myriad of styles on his auspicious debut as a leader ... wails with conviction and rare facility. Definitely a talent deserving of wider recognition."

~ Bill Milkowski, contributor to Downbeat and Jazziz & author of JACO: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius and co-author of Here And Now: The Autobiography of Pat Martino

"A gifted technician with a fine sense of lyricism..." ~ Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz
