THE GUITAR (Sono Luminus), solo guitar (2019)

AVAILABLE: Amazon | iTunes | Spotify | Apple Music


"Boyd’s performances shine with flowing musical melodies, elegant interpretations, and tight rhythmic grooves. A must-have album of 2019.”

    - This Is Classical Guitar

“He is a guitarist for today, a true voice and a phenomena one should not ignore”

    - Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review

“Boyd paints wonderful imagery from a palette of rich colours, exploring the many timbres of his instrument... The Guitar is a very warmly entertaining album”

    - Canberra Critic’s Circle

“The Australian born Boyd must have, in another life, hung out with Bach in a Leipzig café. He plays the Suite in E Major, BWV 1006 with classical clarity, artful articulation and eloquence”

    - Rafael’s Music Notes

It’s a nicely balanced program that always holds your interest and has much to offer, with clean, resonant and idiomatic playing throughout.”
