Malaysia's most renowned finger-style master guitarist Roger Wang produces brilliant and exhilarating music with just six humble strings of an acoustic guitar. With eight collaborative albums and one solo album under his belt, he has refined a brand of music that blends the accessibility of pop music with the intricacy of jazz.
Tommy Ho started playing guitar at age 13, and furthered his study at Dick Grove College of Music and G.I.T. (USA) with Masters like Joe Pass, Larry Carlton, Pat Martino, etc. After graduating in 1983, Tom became an in-house producer, arranger and guitarist for a number of major recording labels like WEA, Capital Artist, Fitto Entertainments, and BMG in Hong Kong for almost 20 years. He recently went back to his Jazz root and started gig-ing at local jazz clubs with groups and musicians from all over the world.
