      Bio

      One of 17 Malaysia's most outstanding individuals (Faces Magazine) - Az Samad, 26 is a full-time composer-performer who focuses on writing original acoustic guitar music. Coming from a classical guitar background laid the foundation for his unique sound that is a blend of jazz, latin, pop and new age. After completing his first degree in music, he studied with Eric Roche, an influential acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from the UK. Attending two of Eric's Residential Guitar Workshops in 2003 and 2004 proved valuable as it led Az into new directions in his music. Being nominated for the first Cameronian Arts Award for best solo performance encouraged him to further explore his solo guitar excursions.

      The culmination of this is "Acoustic Gestures", an independently produced CD featuring 12 of his original compositions for solo acoustic guitar. Currently he is studying under scholarship at the world famous Berklee College Of Music, Boston, USA in the dual-major degree program, majoring in Jazz Composition and Performance (Guitar). While at Berklee, he has studied guitar with Mick Goodrick, Bret Willmott, Jon Damian, Rick Peckham, David Tronzo, Tim Miller, Ben Sher, Garrison Fewell and composition with Greg Hopkins, Steve Rochinski, Ken Pullig, Scott Free and Dick Lowell. He has also studied jazz improvisation with Ed Tomassi and Hal Crook.
