Peter Matuchniak Releases 3rd Solo Album “Sessions” Now Available Worldwide.


Melodic Revolution Records is proud to announce the release of Sessions a brand new 21 track solo album by Peter Matuchniak.


Since releasing his last solo studio album over 5 years ago, Peter Matuchniak has been busy with recording session guitar for several artists in Europe and the USA, and this has formed the basis of his latest release due out soon on September 25thPeter says “I wanted to expand my playing style and take on a few challenges, so I began to say ‘Yes’ to any opportunities to play guest guitar. After a few years, I realized I had done enough to make a compilation CD, so I approached the client artists for permission to do so. Not only was I able to highlight my contributions, but also approach their songs with some quite different arrangements often delving back to an early demo version where the ideas were in their formative stages. I am grateful that all of the artists agreed to this project because for me it was all-or-nothing.”  


During those past 5 years, Peter Matuchniak has also released three albums with bands Kinetic Element and Bomber Goggles, as well as working on new material Lobate Scarp. “Sessions” will be his third solo studio album, but Peter Matuchniak is not done yet, claiming to be working on two future solo releases.  


Peter Matuchniak has also performed live at ProgStock (with Kinetic Element at the After Party show) and was due to perform at RoSFest this year with Lobate Scarp (sadly canceled due to the virus pandemic). With his best Arnold impersonation, he says “I’ll be back“.


About Peter Matuchniak

Peter favors a progressive style of guitar that features melodic solos and graceful chording, clearly influenced by the likes of Steve Hackett (Genesis), Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Andy Latimer (Camel), and Mike Oldfield. Always drawn more to composition and melody above pure technique and over-indulgence, Peter Matuchniak lets sounds and textures guide the music first and foremost.


His compositional style draws from the varied genres he was exposed to at home: a brother into jazz-rock, a sister listening to the latest radio hits, and parents who raised them all on classical music. But the basic element is always progressive rock, and Peter Matuchniak has played with a number of bands in this genre that have garnered attention and reviews, both in London where he grew up as well as in his adopted Southern California home.
