American born Englishman, perhaps totally unknown and a pretty obscure name to many, is arguably one the greatest electric guitarist that has emerged in the XXI century. Mark Wingfield is releasing his transcendental groundbreaking new album of immense beauty "Proof of Light" in February 2015 on MoonJune Records, which features two among my favorite musicians today, Yaron Stavi on upright bass, and Asaf Sirkis on drums. It's not often an album is released that is so daring in its approach and revolutionary in its delivery that it actually changes one's perspective of how music can be expressed and expands their vision of a genre. It is the great privilege and honor for me to present just such an album of the otherworldly guitar stylings of critically-acclaimed guitarist, and in meantime, as an 'appetizer', I am inviting You to download Mark's fabulous music from his ten previous albums. Stay tuned for more news on "Proof of Light".
For British electric guitarist Mark Wingfield, the words “organic” and “electronic” are not mutually exclusive. He explores highly-imaginative tones and colors via his instrument and it’s done without reliance on conventional effects, amps or pickups. His unique take on the guitar has served as the basis for an impressively diverse discography and dozens of compositions that showcase how he extends the guitar’s boundaries, as well as the many genres and influences he chooses to integrate into his work. A handful of the forms Wingfield’s output encompasses include jazz, rock, classical, and global sounds from Africa, India, Japan, and Turkey. - Anil Prasad, Innerviews

Mark Wingfield shifts from Eno-esque ambient soundscapes...to ripping rock-tinged abandon... to cinematic guitar-synth. … Dramatic, intriguing. - Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes
Mark Wingfield has created a unique electric guitar vocabulary... his playing is characteristically deep, nuanced, and inventive.
- Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player Magazine
Wingfield is proving to be a key proponent of adventurous, swinging and modern instrumental jazz-rock fusion in the 21st century. - Robert Silverstein, MWE3
