GEORGE HEATHCO SOLO ENSEMBLE, VOLUME ONE will be available everywhere music is sold or streamed online on 3/10/2023. An instrumental album that explores a vast spectrum of electric and acoustic guitar sounds, GHSE, V.I features the guitar as the star creative tool for the construction of guitar orchestras, guitar soundscapes, and guitar-centric soundtracks to films and movies yet to be made. 

The release of the full album will be preceded by releases of two singles from the volume: “Terlingua,” a soundtrack for an imagined dystopian spaghetti western inspired by the vast, open and rocky landscape of west Texas, and a flowing and introspective  soliloquy called “Dancer.”

The George Heathco Solo Ensemble is the house band for STUDIO HEATHCO. A studio orchestra of one, the GHSE is led by bandleader/composer/guitarist George Heathco.

“His music is a bold synthesis of contemporary concert music, rock, jazz, and pop genres, and he asserts his indie business practices as unabashedly.” Arts and Culture

“Mr. Heathco is a solid guitarist, coaxing a wide variety of sounds and textures from his instrument…” Sequenza21
