Guitarist Ant Law to Release ‘Zero Sum World’

English guitarist Ant Law is set to release his sophomore album ‘Zero Sum World’ on February 16th by way of Whirlwind Recordings. Law, a scholar of physics at Edinburgh University as well as a former student of the Berklee College of Music, is proving himself to be a prolific guitar player. The album emerged following an extensive UK tour with his quintet, formed most notably of Phronesis’ Ivo Neame on piano but also Michael Chillingworth on reeds, Tom Farmer on upright and James Maddren on drums, a tour which gave the band the opportunity to experiment, develop and polish the music before stepping into the studio. The music is progressive, inventive, exciting and intricate, qualities we greatly admire in the artists featured on this site. Check out the EPK for the album after the jump as well as an outtake from the recording session and a guitar overdub. ‘Zero Sum World’ can be purchased via Law’s website. He will also be touring the UK to promote the release. Dates are at the bottom of the post.
