“With his third album, this 17 year old guitarist from Guatemala displays talent way beyond his years and this virtuoso axe man is starting to catch the eye of the music industry outside of his native country, recently playing with some notable names such as Kansas and Whitecross. Playing music that ranges from rock to jazz fusion, Hedras, who is self taught, shows that he knows how to make his guitar perform acrobatics. There is a full mixture of finger shredding solos, laid back jazz funk and all manner of squeaks and pops emanating from his guitar. In what is a truly diverse offering, even a Scottish bagpipe makes an appearance in the aptly named "Something Different" which harks back to the days of Big Country. The cream of this recording however, is certainly found on tracks where the sound is stripped down to a driving bass and heavy guitar, such as "Writing A History" where Hedras can really let rip over a simple platform.”

At only (just!) 17 years of age it was always going to interesting to see if he could pull it off live… Judges Comments: Rob Harris: “…good intervallic playing… but where’s the tune!... more chops than a butchers shop!... powerful delivery…” Phil Hilborne: “… angular piece… not the best tone… strong technique – nice tapping ideas… good variety in the arpeggio sections… very good overall – but a little too Phrygian dominant for my tastes! …” Martin Goulding: “…nice eintervallic melody… good control and tone… riffage top class… playing is full of colour, flair and technical flamboyance… incredible potential… CLICK TO READ FULL ARTICLE”
