Freshwater Road is a collection of music performed and composed by acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Lucas Michailidis. In keeping with earlier work, Freshwater Road finds Michailidis in a solo setting, performing unaccompanied, instrumental compositions that draw from a broad musical palette. With a penchant for character-rich melodies he is lyrical, audacious and at times, downright scandalous.
A major departure from earlier jazz-based work, The Offering finds Lucas Michailidis in a truly solo acoustic setting, sans vocal accompaniment or overdub. The extensive and unconventional use of guitar tunings provide the music with a fresh, melodically driven approach that is free of cliche.
