The band are excited to announce guitarist Luke Machin has teamed up with the band as a special guest for future tours and recording. Luke’s stunning playing recently elevated him into the Prog Magazine Best Guitarist poll top ten alongside guitar legends Steve Hackett, Steve Rothery and Guthrie Govan. He’s also shared the stage with Jeff Beck, Francis Dunnery, Pain of Salvation and Robert Plant. Luke’s own band Maschine were winners of Prog Magazines ‘Best New Band’ readers’ poll and The Classic Rock Society‘s ‘Best New Band’ award’.
Luke has recently been working with Ian and Agnieska Swita on their debut Illuminae project. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Luke over the past year on the debut Illuminae album. Luke is a superb player who combines great muscianship with a sympathetic ear for the song arrangement and production and has really helped add an extra dimension to the album. I’m really looking forward to working with Luke in Karnataka” Ian Jones
