Adrian Belew Power Trio
Adrian Belew Power Trio
Adrian Belew (born Robert Steven Belew, December 23, 1949, in Covington, Kentucky) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. He is perhaps best known for his work as a member of the progressive rock group King Crimson (which he has fronted since 1981) and for his unusual impressionistic approach to guitar playing (involving arresting, yet frequently melodic sounds more akin to animals and machines than to standard instrumental tones).

Widely recognized as an "incredibly versatile player",[1] Belew has released nearly twenty solo albums for Island Records and Atlantic Records which blend Beatles-inspired pop-rock with more experimental fare. His 2005 single "Beat Box Guitar" was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category. In addition to being a member of King Crimson, he is also in the more straightforward pop band The Bears and fronted his own band, "Gaga", in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He has worked extensively as a session and touring musician, most famously with Talking Heads, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, and Nine Inch Nails.

Belew has recently moved into instrument design, collaborating with Parker Guitars to help design his own Parker Fly signature guitar. This guitar is noticeably different from the standard design, containing advanced electronics such as a sustainer pickup and a Line 6 Variax guitar modelling system. It is also MIDI-capable, allowing it to be used with any synthesizer with MIDI connectivity.

Veteran artist and multi-instrumentalist, Saul Zonana, has been touring and releasing his quirky brand of pop-rock music for over thirty years now. His prolific and extensive career includes ten solo albums, with commercial radio success from his "WAVES" album and the still popular "BLUE MONKEY".

Teaming up with guitar icon Adrian Belew in 2006, Saul created his "42 Days" CD to critical acclaim. "Chasin' It" is still a fan favorite from that album, as is the music documentary ("Chasin' It") which aired on PBS.

Saul toured on bass with The Ace Frehley Band, and on guitar with the Crash Test Dummies. As a solo support artist, Saul has toured with Leon Russell, Glenn Tilbrook, Lisa Loeb, The Spin Doctors, Adrian Belew Power Trio 2006-2008 and many others. In the studio, Saul has worked with many great artists including Taylor Dayne, Blue Oyster Cult, and American Idol finalist Haeley Vaughn.

Adrian Belew fans know him well as the recording engineer on Belew's "Side Four: Live" as well as the groundbreaking Belew Power Trio studio album "e".

Saul is now on the road in support of his 2013 release "FIX THE BROKEN", and is close to finishing the new one, due out in January 2015.
When asked to comment on his career Saul simply smiled and said, "I'm just getting started".
