Guitarist Jeff Aug To Release 9th Acoustic Instrumental Album “Kiss of the Liquid Moon” on February 1, 2024

Guitarist Jeff Aug will be releasing his solo album “Kiss of the Liquid Moon” on February 1, 2024. This will be his 9th acoustic instrumental album (7 solo, 2 as the duo Floating Stone together with Niko Lai who died in 2018). The album is a cross section of his solo acoustic instrumental fingerstyle guitar playing from the last few years. Some of the pieces have been played live, but never recorded. Some have been played live, but never sounded like this. And some will probably never be played live.

For “Kiss of the Liquid Moon”, Jeff enlisted the recording and production prowess of Murat Parlak at his Living Room Studios in Germany. Murat is also featured on many of the tracks, as well as a few other special guests. The album also includes a few purely solo pieces.

Coming off a major European tour in Nov/Dec 2023 as the guitarist for the British icon Anne Clark, Jeff will kick off 2024 with the album release and follow it up with yet another major European tour supporting the legendary fusion guitarist Scott Henderson. The year will follow with yet to be announced Jeff Aug and Ape Shifter (Jeff´s instrumental rock band) festival performances. In September and October 2024, Jeff will be headlining his own European tour. More dates are to be announced.

So, sit back and enjoy “Kiss of the Liquid Moon”.
