Ty Oliver - Healed Through Time album cover

Ty Oliver is a young ambitious shredder, who really makes his point clear enough form the first notes on the fret board. He is here to shred and fight for domination among the fastest guitar tamers in his filed of music. His debut consists of ten songs all-instrumental compositions, heavily influenced by Joe Satriani and Steve Vai (especially the latter one!), but this is quite normal as the majority of new or older guitarists pay their homage one way or another to the previously aforementioned guitar theogonic duo.
His songs and compositions range from Melodic Rock, plus some beautifully crafted ballads as well as Satriani-c speed tempo songs - carefully composed and ideal company for driving - especially by yourself. He manages to cover a really wide spectrum of emotions and this makes his work quite appealing. You also get the occasional repetitions from time to time - and comparison with other work is also inevitable here but in the end he achieves to transfer you unique feeling of musicality and sensitivity.
I think that this is one of the most promising debut guitar instrumental albums for this year. Ty seems eager enough to fight for his own recognition amongst the other mega shredders and in my opinion I think that he has quite the potential to do achieve this! His music on the whole describes happiness sadness melancholy and so on - all delivered through his six-string commandment.
Moreover, Healed Through Time was recorded and mixed by Matt Sotelo at Legion Studios while it was mastered by Colin Davis at Imperial Mastering. Highlights of this album can be considered - amongst the other - the following ones: Lost In Thought, Surrounded By Beauty, Driven, Race Day and Inside Your Heart. Just grab on your bike or car, put Race Day in your stereo system and play it on 10 scale!...ugh, and don't forget the speed limit!
